Recipe by gailanng
READY IN: 55mins
YIELD: 1 cake




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat or in microwave; remove from heat and let cool several minutes. Add the cocoa and stir to mix; set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, with a whisk beat the eggs and granulated sugar until well blended.
  • To the egg/sugar mixuture, add the melted butter/cocoa and vanilla extract; stir or whisk until blended.
  • Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture. Whisk to mix well. Add pecans and incorporate.
  • Spoon the mixture into a lightly oiled 9x13x2 inch baking pan. The batter will be thick.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and immediately pour the marshmallows evenly over the top of the hot cake. They will soften, but will not melt.
  • For the topping:
  • Sift the confectioners' sugar with the 4 tablespoons cocoa. (This is easily done by using a seive and it, also, breaks up the lumps.).
  • A few minutes before the cake is done, melt the 4 tablespoons butter and the evaporated milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat; remove.
  • Combine the sugar and cocoa mixture with the butter and milk mixture. Pour over the warm cake.
  • Cool completely.
  • Cut into squares to serve.
