We have eaten this cake in our family for as long as I can remember (age 48). Was the winning chocolate cake to make before all the mixes came along. Very rich and wonderful.I believe my mom used a powdered sugar icing on it but I have used mixes and ready to spread (be careful there cake is very tender)


  • 1 C Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 4 TBS Cocoa
  • 2 C Flour
  • 1 C Warm water
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla


Mix together: Miracle Whip, sugar and cocoa. Then add 1 cup of flour, all of water, then other 1 cup of flour and baking soda. Mix all together and then add vanilla. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until done (ovens vary). Cool completely before icing.

Don't know about nutritional info but serve warm with vanilla ice cream and you will believe in miracles!
