Mississippi Mud - by Bob

**Updated with recipe and pictures below.

Bob's food memory
I am going to gain from this more than I contribute. I don't seem to have records of any recipe's. Though I do have lots of food memories to share.
One of my all time favorite Grandma C recipe's is the Mississippi mud cake! It is like a combination of fudge brownie, chocolate cake, and smores. It has been years since I've had one of these, and I think it's time!
I wish I could remember the first time I tried this cake, because I am sure it was a special moment :) I always requested this cake for my birthday. I can remember a birthday party at the lake. Stace made me the cake and the whole family was there. After water skiing and swimming, the cake was a delicious treat!

Who has the recipe?

Updated by Stace.
Here is the recipe Bob (pictures are from the cake I made for Mom's birthday-- Happy Birthday Mom):
Gather your cake ingredients:
1/3 cup of cocoa
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp soda
2 cups sugar
1/tsp salt
2 sticks melted butter
4 beaten egges
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups of pecans (or other nuts)
large marshmallows (or marshmallow creme)

Mix together dry ingredients:

add butter, eggs, vanilla and pecans
(I left out the pecans because my nieces and nephews don't like them)

Mix well

pour into greased 9x12 and cook for 45 min at 300 degrees

When cake is done, add marshmallows to top of hot cake and melt in oven for a few minutes (or top with marshmallow creme -- I prefer the toasted marshmallows).
When marshmallows are soft, spread them across cake (like icing) and allow to cool. When cake is completely cool, ice with this fudge icing.

1 box powdered sugar (16 oz)
1/3 cup cocoa
1 stick melted oleo (or butter)
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
mix until creamy and add to cake

Thanks for adding the recipe and great pictures Stacey. I love the angle that you take them. It is such a different way than I would ever think to take them. You certainly have a good eye for it. They look so professional.

Love you,
