I baked my first Chocolate mayonnaise cake last weekend,
and for the first time with one of Rose?s cakes, I was
absolutely dissapointed, and I don?t think this is a cake I will
try to bake again.
The batter was a bit liquidy, and there was so little of it, that
I used just one pan.
The cake rose nicely,and domed a little; once cold, it remained
flat. The color was a nice dark brown, the texture reminded me
that of a pudding.  When you bit into it, it felt fudgy like.
But… i didn?t like it! I found it had an unappealing aftertaste
and mouthfeel… In my opinion the mayonnaise had too much
protagonism, and in a bad way.
Other “Tasters” also reported a “strange” taste, though they
couldn?t describe it (and I wouldn’t tell beforehand, of course).
I followed the exact insctructions, as always.  I used 1/2 tsp
less bicarbonate, as the only adjustement for the high altitude.
If not a measuring problem, what could have been the cause of
this too mayonnaisey-mayonnaisecake?

I followed the instructions as closely as possible, though it is always posiible
that I made a mistake.  I weigh the ingredientes, and the on ly change was
1/2tsp bicarbonate less.
I checked the package of the mayonnaise (Kraft), adn it says “natural flavour”,
but also “aderezo tipo mayonesa”, something like “mayonnaise-kind dressing”.
The ingredients list include, as it should be, vegetable oil and eggs, as well as
preservants,spices, vinegar, xantham, etc.
Anyway, I tried the recipe because I was curious, but I don?t think I will try
it again.
Thanks for your comments, Silvia.

Charles, yes, the mayonnaise flavour was assertive,
but I couldn’t remember a good word to describe it.
I’ll have to remember “assertive”, it is such a helpful word!
Kraft is a traditional, trustful (trustable) brand, isn?t it?
regards

?sweet onion? to ?Kraft mac and cheese powder”

Charles,
It seems that Kraft was a bad choice!
