Yes, and don’t be afraid of the two secret ingredients. Mayonnaise and black pepper?!? How strange is that! I promise, it works perfectly. The mayo keeps the cake super moist and the pepper adds a hint of spice that no one can pick out. If you have espresso powder on hand, you can also add that for a deeper, darker chocolate flavor. I didn’t have any, so I used pepper and it was very subtle but added a slightly new dimension of flavor 😉 Give it a try! Let me know what you think 😉
This cake has made it’s debut with peanut butter frosting, hot fudge and crushed up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It has also been covered in mint frosting with chopped up mint Oreo’s on top and even layered in an ice cream cake for a Grasshopper Ice Cream Cake (recipe coming tomorrow!). No matter how we served it, it was a HUGE hit this month!
