From The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. This is definitely not a traditional Red Velvet cake, but it's very moist and sweet and it was highly complimented when I made it for my family. Some people sub a container of marshmallow creme for the mini marshmallows. I have seen versions of this recipe with 9" rounds and 8" rounds--I used 8". UPDATE: Other sources on the web, including Food Network and Paula Deen's site, list 2 Tablespoons of cocoa rather than the 1 tsp listed in the cookbook. I also have a penciled note on my copy saying to add 1/2 cup applesauce (for moistness).
