We were on a secret mission.....
final destination: Kansas
mission objective: bake a mayo birthday cake for Dot
2 cups flour
1 cup mayo
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla
Dissolve soda in 1 cup boiling water, pour over nuts and dates, in a small bowl. Let cool.
Mix mayo and sugar together. Add all ingredients together, stir til well mixed.
Spread batter in a greased and floured 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350F til set...Don't overbake.
It's good with a 7 minute icing, or a cooked one we like, which Alicia calls "Cloudburst", which is much more colorful a name than "the cooked flour/milk one". It's a lovely light airy frosting.
