Miracle Whip, the popular salad dressing that most people think of as a sandwich condiment, can actually be found in certain chocolate cake recipes. While the notion of the piquant spread in your cake might sound a little funky, it actually adds a nice tangy element to the cake and ensures that it will remain extremely moist. Look for recipes called "Salad Dressing Cake" if you want to try it out for yourself.
