This decadent, easy-to-make chocolate cake beats store-bought cake hands down! What's the secret ingredient that gives it such a rich, to-die-for texture? You won't believe it, but it's mayonnaise, and it's probably in your fridge right now!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, divided
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9" x 13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray, and flour lightly.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, cocoa, mayonnaise, water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract; blend with an electric beater on medium speed until well combined.
     
  3. Pour the batter into the baking dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely.
     
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the confectioners' sugar, milk, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; blend until smooth. Frost cooled cake.

Apple Bacon Coleslaw

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but it also adds a whole new twist to one of our long-time favorites! Between the crunch of the cabbage, the tartness of the apple, and the smokiness of the bacon, our Apple Bacon Coleslaw is truly a winner.
