Just wondering if I could go longer w/o buying eggs when I make a few other recipes this week for a potluck.
I've gone to the grocery store way too many times this week, so I'm trying to avoid it. The 3T of mayo was just something I found as an acceptable substitution in my recipe book.
|I hadn't thought of that, but it makes sense...
I wonder though how much it alters the taste? Mayo has a fairly strong flavour...
|Well, it's an emulsion, what you are trying to get with the egg. Plus since it has egg, you have the protein needed for some complicated chemistry only Alton Brown would care about. Like Willowsprite, the lemon or vinegar flavor might be a tradeoff you hadn't counted on.|
|Joahaeyo, I can't help answer your question, but just wanted to tell you how cute your pic of Lil J is. I love it!|
|thanks. we call him our very own will smith (ears).|
|All I can say is EWWWWWWWWWWW. (see thread on Mayo is gross )
That said, I don't know and I'm sure your cake tasted lovely.
|I know that their are cake recipes that call for mayo, and those are delicious. For example Portillo's famous chocolate cake uses mayo....mmmmm. Mayo is basically oil and eggs, so it makes sense when you break it down that way.|
|I could be completely wrong but I don't think that mayo will aid in leavening so any recipes using it for that purpose wouldn't work too well.
I don't know the exact ration of oil to egg in mayo, but I seem to recall that it is a lot more oil than egg.
Like I said though, I could be wrong.
|Okay, I went to the gas station to get eggs.
Then I stopped by starbucks to get some tea. Brought back some memories.
|Um, Joah, silly question....but....why did you go to the gas station for eggs?? (as opposed to the grocery store )|
|...and why does this trip bring back memories?|
|Oh yes, the StarBuckTest.
Don't they sell those at the counter as SBT?
|I was too lazy to find a parking space, walk all the way to the egg section, get in line, etc.. I KNOW... but I REALLY have been at the grocery store a zillion times this week getting ready for a big potluck!!! Coincidently, the Starbucks was next door to the vet, and I wanted to hear yuki's blood test results.
ravenmoonart, if I knew I was going to get starbucks, I guess it WOULD have made more sense to go to Carrs and go to their Starbucks
|Eggs at the gas station....EWWW.....am I the only one who thinks that is just WRONG! LMAO......maybe you have nicer gas stations where you live Here they are so gross I wouldn't even want to take my kid IN the gas station....never mind buy food there.|
Being that I worked at a gas station while in college, I guess it is gross. Our stuff would stay there for ages.
Hopefully I don't get all the wives sick. The eggs haven't even reached their expiration date, so that's a good sign.

MAYONNAISE CHOCOLATE CAKE
2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
4 tbsp. cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. water
1 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. vanilla
Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add the water and beat 1 minute. Add the mayonnaise and beat 1 minute. Add the vanilla and beat 1 minute.
Pour into a greased and floured pan, 13 x 9 inch square for a very high cake. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and chocolate bits for a dandy frosting. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
The number of variations are many.....
|I sometimes use mayo instead of eggs in my cornbread. It tastes just as good and too me it is not as dry.|
