Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

This blog is dedicated to Sunny and Shambles from SWEET DREAMS by Kristen Ashley.

Gitte Doherty from Totally Booked Blog introduced me to Kristen Ashley and the alpha-male-hero’s and kick-ass world of mystery, fun and humor she has created. I started off with Motorcycle Man and then of course had to read the whole Dream Man Series. I am currently reading Rock Chick Series, then on to Colorado Series and then the Burg Series…I’m totally addicted and out of control!

If you haven’t read Motorcycle Man or Own the Wind (the first in the Chaos Series) I strongly recommend you do. If you are an avid fan of Sons of Anarchy television series, then these are the books for you.

Readers and reviewers Heidi and Gitte will be on my blog in the near future to give you their impressions of these books.

Now, speaking of addictions….CHOCOLATE…most people’s kryptonite and here is a recipe to satisfy your chocolate addiction.


Yes, you read the title of this blog right: CHOCOLATE MAYO CAKE.

Chocolate plus mayonnaise in a cake is a party for the tummy. Trust me. This cake will be a hit with you, your family and friends.

It’s moist and chocolate-ilcious topped with Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting that will bring out the oohs-aahhs and award you with many compliments.
