Portillo’s chocolate cake recipe is revealed!
October 27, 2011 § 3 Comments
One of Chicago’s most prized and popular restaurant chains is Portillo’s. It is famous for its hotdogs and beef, which are both phenomenal. What people go crazy for, though, is Portillo’s unbelievably rich and moist chocolate cake. No one could understand what made this cake so different from the rest. Finally, the recipe was made public. The secret ingredient? Mayonnaise.
Normally I have terrible luck recreating desserts like the original, but this cake was made from scratch for my graduation party, and it was just as delicious as the restaurant’s. This is my all-time favorite chocolate cake, and for those of you who are not from Chicago, you must make it on your own. Oh, and don’t let the mayonnaise part freak you out. Trust me. It’s worth it.
1 box Betty Crocker super moist chocolate butter recipe (has to be this one!)
1 cup ice cold water
1 cup Hellman’s regular mayonnaise
2 cans Betty Crocker creamy chocolate frosting
