Chances are you have a pot of mayo perched in your fridge ready for your salads and savoury dishes. But have you ever thought about using it in some sweet baking?
Yip, there’s a secret ingredient inside these delicious chilli chocolate hi-hat cupcakes – they’re packed with mayo!
I know what you’re thinking; why would you use mayo in cupcakes?
Well, ultimately mayo is just eggs and oil – two ingredients that are used in baking all the time. So when you bake with mayo, you’re really just switching out the eggs and oil you’d usually use for this cupboard staple – perfect for when you’re in a pinch! Using mayo also makes the finished cupcakes both light and dense at the same time – it sounds like a strange combination, but it’s absolutely beautiful.
