From Cook's Country
Our Midnight Cake recipe has a simple preparation and rich chocolate flavor. It calls for mayonnaise in place of eggs and butter (or oil) and cocoa instead of chocolate. We avoided Dutch-processed cocoa powder here. Our Midnight Cake recipe doesn’t require a mixer—a whisk is all that’s needed to combine the dry ingredients and mayonnaise. We whisked the dry ingredients into the mayonnaise in three installments. This ensured the ingredients fully incorporated and minimized the possibility of clumps.
This recipe uses mayonnaise in place of eggs and butter (or oil) and cocoa instead of chocolate; it doesn't require a mixer. For all these reasons, it's very easy to make. Avoid Dutch-processed cocoa powder here. Dust with confectioners' sugar to serve.
