Guest recipe by Jessica Segarra

Peanut butter & jelly. Rice & pudding. Chocolate & mayonnaise? What? Not exactly two things that are often placed together are they? I know, I know, you're probably thinking "Surely you're not going to show me a recipe that puts these two things together." but the thing is...I am. And not only that but it's one of the most delicious recipes that you'll have heard of in a long time.

The recipe likely originated sometime during the Great Depression (explains the unlikely ) but has been a staple of those who tasted it for some time. You probably have a parent or grandparent that has tasted this delicacy before and will give it their whole hearted recommendation. Though it's an unlikely pairing chocolate mayonnaise cake is a dessert you may find yourself going back to again and again.

One thing I'd have to say is don't knock it until you've tried it. So how does one go about making a chocolate mayonnaise cake? Well the process is actually pretty simple. You'll only need a few ingredients (seven in total) to get started on this unique delicacy. What you'll need is flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, sugar, cocoa powder, whole milk, and then of course mayonnaise.

Then you put it all together just like you would with any other cake and you'll end up with a delicious treat. Feel free to top it off with your favorite chocolate frosting (but feel free to try something else if you have it in mind) for a truly mind blowing dessert. So while chocolate and mayonnaise is probably not what you had in mind when you first thought of cooking a tasty dessert you might be surprised to find that this becomes your new favorite dish. So give it a try and see what you think! My guess is you'll be pleasantly surprised.
