Share the chef’s best-kept baking secret and create a richer, moister cake by adding Hellmann’s to your favorite cake mix. The smooth consistency of real mayonnaise gives cakes a marvelously moist texture.
1 package chocolate cake mix (with pudding in the mix)
1 cup Hellman’s real mayonnaise
1 cup water
Grease and flour 2 (9″) layer cake pans. In a large bowl with mixer at low speed, blend all ingredients 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes or 300 strokes by hand. Pour into prepared pans. Bake in 350 F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove. Cool on wire racks. Fill and frost as desired. To prepare cake without pudding in the mix, reduce mayonnaise to 1/2 cup.
