Snacking cake isn’t a fancy, layered cake with filling and frosting. It’s a one-bowl cake that’s egg free, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious with just a dusting of powdered sugar on top.

I received some samples of Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo with free-reign to create a recipe using their product. My husband takes his mayonnaise very seriously. Sandwiches around here need plenty of it!
We sampled the garlic mayo, sriracha mayo, and the plain, and all three were a hit! We put the sriracha on fish tacos last weekend and I used the garlic mayo in my egg-less Caesar Salad dressing. Then I remembered grandma’s Mayonnaise cake for the plain mayo!
Mayonnaise cakes were popular during the depression era, when eggs, milk and butter were scarce. Even though Hampton Creek is egg-free, in a blind taste test, it actually was preferred over Hellman’s and it’s a great choice for those with egg allergies.
A snacking cake isn’t a fancy, layered cake with filling and frosting, it’s a simple one-bowl cake with just a dusting of powdered sugar.
The mayo makes it moist and rich, the coffee gives it depth, and the addition of mini chocolate chips takes it over the top! It takes just minutes to prepare and is perfect with a glass of milk for an after-school treat or to satisfy evening munchies.
