Miracle Whip Cake Recipe Card Details

This very popular recipe for Miracle Whip Cake has seen a few rounds in the kitchen as you can see by the aging and kitchen splats.

Mayonnaise was invented in 1756 and Miracle Whip was invented in 1933 as a cheaper alternative to mayonnaise.

The earliest known “Mayonnaise Cake” was in 1927.

Adding mayonnaise or Miracle Whip to a cake is an old “trick” to make your cake incredibly moist.

When you use either you normally don’t have to add eggs or oil to your recipe as the Miracle Whip or mayonnaise is a substitute.

Imix by hand. I do not use a mixer. I used a mixer before when I had this recipe and my cake came out dry. When I mixed it by hand the cake came out to be the moistest cake you could ever ask for. Thank you for sharing.

I love this recipe. I had got this same recipe from my Grandmother. She said it was a family recipe and not to lose it. Guess what I did. Now I just found it again. Thank you so much for sharing it. I will make it for my Birthday on November 19.
