Judi's Super Moist Gluten Free Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

   Some of the Chinese students who come for dinner on Fridays wanted Judi, who by the way is an expert baker, to show them how to make a cake.  She's so good, she's even sold cookies at her work.  

   So tonight Judi brought over the ingredients to make a gluten free chocolate mayonnaise cake so I could eat it, too. I had fun watching the girls make the cake and took pictures. 

    After we ate dinner and read out of a Holy Word for Morning Revival book published by Living Stream Ministry called Topics for New Believers (which is a good devotional for young Christians), we then brought out the cake.  Judi likes to serve this cake with ice cream and a hot coconut fudge topping.  It was beyond decadent--so good!  Most of the students and the adults had two servings!


In a mixing bowl put:
(1)  1 2/3 cup sugar
(2)  3 eggs
(3)  1 t vanilla; Judi likes to use 1 T vanilla
(4)  Add 1 cup of whole mayonnaise (Best Foods is what Judi uses)
(5) Then add 1 1/3 cups of water
(6)  Mix together a few minutes until combined.

2.  Mix dry ingredients - In a bowl stir
(1)  2 cups of gluten free flour mix
(2)  1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa. (I used 2/3 cup for Trader's Joe's brand of cocoa or if you like a richer flavor)
(3)  1 and 1/4 t soda, 1/4 t baking powder

3.  Combine ingredients:  Add the dry ingredients to the egg and sugar mixture and put it on the dial for cake and mix the ingredients together for 3 minutes. This batter will be a bit runny so don't be bothered by that.

4.  Baking the cake:  Grease a 9 x 13 pan and then pour the batter into the pan.  Bake at 350  for 30-35 minutes.  Check doneness with a toothpick.

Judi's Hot Coconut Fudge Topping
 Put a can of regular coconut milk in a saucepan on the stove and warm up.  Then add 3 cups of chocolate chips and stir until melted.  Continue cooking until it is just the right temperature!  Pour over ice cream on top of the cake.  
Or you can make your own special icing for this yummy cake!
Blog Update 4/22/14:  Today I made this recipe for a birthday and it made 24 cupcakes. I also reduced the sugar to 1 1/3 cups, and it still came out great.
