I have been using this recipe for years..It makes the best Mississippi Mud cake I have ever tasted....very moist and flavorful....also quick and easy....I usually melt my butter in the microwave in a mixing bowl, then pour all of the cake ingredients into the bowl and stir with a spoon until well blended..doesnt get any easier....thanks for posting...
I made this and added 1 t coffee and 1 t baking powder and half baking soda as wasn't sure if needed it or not. It was really yummy and my children and I gobbled it up in record time. Please can anyone let me know if it is supposed to have baking powder in???
This Recipe is just like the one I use except the icing is cooked like fudge. 2 c sugar 2 tbls. cocoa 1 st. butter 2/3 cans ev. milk 1 tsp. vanilla Bring everything to a boil cook 10 min. and pour over marshmellow's My baby brother's favorite Chocolate cake! Thanks for reminding me about this cake!
Made into cupcakes and turned out wonderful. Thanks for sharing..
Recipe identical to the recipe I've for at least 30 years, with a couple of exceptions, mine calls for 1 cup walnut, and only 3 cups miniature marshmallows. I prefer pecans, in Texas we use pecans anytime it calls for nuts. This is a wonderful cake that everyone loves.
Yummy! Rich, sweet and decadent. Made for a pot luck and everyone enjoyed it. I've made several different mud cakes, this is the first one that used marshmallows instead of marshmallow cream. I found that when the cake was cooled prior to frosting, the marshmallows stayed whole and were easily discerned in the finished product which is OK if you like marshmallows. Next time I'll warm briefly in the oven to soften them before adding the frosting, and lightly swirl together. Southern Living recipes are always good. They're the only ones I'll make for company without trying first. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Moist and delicious. I mixed the marshmallow in with the frosting and poured it over the cake while still warm. Did I say YUM?
I was disappointed in this recipe after reading all the rave reviews. I cooked only 25 minutes and my cake was not moist & too sweet for me. I would suggest using 1 cup of sugar & then tasting for sweetness I think using 2 eggs instead of 4 may make the cake more brownie like. My marshmallows did not melt, so I would suggest putting cake back in oven for a couple of minutes with the marshmallows.
Blech! This is not at all what I expected, and nothing like any Mississippi Mud Cake I've ever had! I am very disappointed. And, frankly, too embarrassed to serve it to anyone. I love sweets, but this is just too sweet! I made everything to the letter, to no avail. Not only is this cake not good, it's simply awful!
Just made this for my daughter's birthday. it was totally awesome, more moist than my old recipe. I did substitute a jar of marshmallow creme for the miniature marshmallows
