Miracle Whip Chocolate Cake

This cake is so moist... your guests won't believe it's not a cake mix.


1 cup Miracle Whip salad dressing
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg (optional)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup water, cold


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 - 8-inch layer pans, or a 9x13 cake pan.

Cream Miracle Whip and sugar together. Add the egg and the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add dry ingredients to salad dressing mixture alternately with water, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Blend well after each addition until smooth.

Pour into prepared pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes. Frost as desired.

NOTE: the original recipe does not call for an egg, however Tante Mary always puts one in because she says "how can you make a cake without any eggs?"


2 tbsp melted butter
6 tbsp cocoa
1 cup sifted icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp hot hot hot water

Mix the melted butter, the vanilla and the cocoa. Sift the icing sugar and add it in. Mix and add the hot water little by little till you get the desired spreading consistency. Spread on cake and allow to set.
