Cake Recipe Using Hellman's Mayonaise-Anyone Have It?

Anna 'Boo' Carroll | Nov 21, 200404:29 PM

I have exhausted myself trying to find the perfect cupcake in NYC. The only one I have found that was edible came from The Little Pie Company. I read where that adorable Amy Sedaris makes cupcakes for a local bakery? Restaurant? sometimes. Her brother David, the writer, said her cupcakes are the best because they are 'so moist.' They did live, for a time, in the South, so I wonder if this is her secret.

I am looking for a cake/cup cake recipe using Hellman's mayonaise. I know it exists because so many Southern cooks talked about using it when I was growing up and not caring a bit about baking anything but my body at the beach.

Anyone out there know where I can find this recipe? I am looking for the most MOIST cake I can bake. Just bought a 5-Speed Hand-Held KITCHEN AID and am eager to start bakin' again. My expensive, professional KITCHEN AID is sitting on top of the fridge with the Halloween masks.
