"My niece and nephew absolutely 'hated' mayonnaise. The first time I made it, I didn't tell them and now it's their favorite cake. I've also made muffins with this recipe".


3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup raisins
2 cups water
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (of your choice)

  • Bring water and raisins to a boil; add soda and cool.
  • Add all of the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Bake at 350º in 2 greased, floured loaf pans (9 x 5 x 2 3/4).
  • Check at 45 minutes with a toothpick. If still gooey, let them bake 5 minutes more.
  • Check again, etc., not cooking over 1 hour.
