Oh my. This is one of those cakes that’s not too sweet, super moist, and totally addictive. I like to serve it warm with a pat of butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.

Amish Mayonnaise Applesauce Snack Cake would be a wonderful addition to breakfast, brunch, or tea. Because there’s no frosting, it would work well as a lunchbox dessert too. Yum!

~ preheat oven to 350 degrees F. ~

1 cup sugar

1 cup real mayonnaise

1/2 cup 2% or whole milk

2 cups unsweetened applesauce

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 large egg, lightly beaten

3 cups all purpose flour, sifted

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

Butter a 9 x 13 glass cake pan and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine: sugar, mayonnaise, milk, applesauce, and vanilla until smooth. Mix in egg until just combined.

In a separate bowl, combine: flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, 1 cup at a time, until combined. Don’t over-stir or your cake will become tough. The batter will be somewhat thick.

Pour into prepared pan and bake until a wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs on it. (Approximately 35 to 40 minutes.) Allow cake to cool completely, and store in a sealed container or on a domed glass cake plate, for up to 3 days at room temperature.

When ready to serve, slice, warm a piece up a bit, and dab with a pat of butter. Sprinkle on a little cinnamon and sugar.

    I think this would be good, however, am concerned about an entire cup of Real Mayo! What would happen if we substituted something less fatty?

      Hi Sally!
      You could try substituting more applesauce for half of the mayonnaise. I’ve personally never tried this, but if you’re concerned about the whole cup of mayonnaise, you could give it a go. 😉 Best, ~Melissa

      Remember the mayonaise is the only fat taking the place of oil or butter. I’m going to do a half recipe and try it

    It couldn’t hurt to try. I wouldn’t think it’s be a total loss. 🙂

    I have this in the oven right now. This is what I did: I used 2 c all purpose flour, 1 c wheat, 1/2 c truvia baking blend sweetener. I kept the 1 c mayo and used a 15 oz can of applesauce. I have some dulce de leche caramel spread that I picked up at The World Market. I am going to warm it and drizzle on the cake after it is cooled. I may even try to turn it into a poke cake. I will let you know the outcome.
