Miracle Whip Chocolate Cake

This was a lovely treat that John whipped up for dessert tonight!

1 cup Miracle Whip (not fat free or calorie reduced)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup of water

Combine salad dressing and sugar in a bowl, blend till smooth.
Add vanilla.
In a seperate bowl mix dry ingredients.
Add dry ingredients to salad dressing mixture alternately with water.
note: we found we had to add a little more water because it was very thick
Mix well after each addition.
Pour batter into a greased cake pan (or 2-6" round pans)
note: we did not find the batter rose very much
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
note: it cooked quickly and almost burnt, so watch it carefully!
Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

Frost if desired, or add a layer of ice cream between!
WE added Pampered Chef "sweet caramel sprinkle to 1/2 and sweet mocha hazelnut sprinkle to the other 1/2 before we baked the cake.......THAT was lovely!

We found the cake was heavy but really nice. I think it would hold up great cut into squares on a dessert tray.

"Bon Appetit!"

  1. This cake was absolutely lovely. It would be perfect sliced, with butter, and a nice cup of tea.
