Chocolate Marshmallow Cake
The Most Amazing Chocolate Marshmallow Cake

I grew up with having chocolate marshmallow cake for special occasions when I was growing up and my Dad loved it…….but this week I stumbled on a new version and it is amazing!  The only difference was that I did not use buttermilk in the frosting I used regular milk other than that it was sooooo good and I have 7 (thirteen year old boys) plus our family pretty much clean out the pan…..It is rich but hey its once a year…..right?

I am going to post the recipe and the link just in case the link goes missing….I have had that happen before!

Chocolate Marshmallow Cake Recipe from Simply Modern Mom

1 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup buttermilk (or use 1 cup milk mixed with 1 tablespoon vinegar)
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Chocolate Satin Frosting (see recipe below)

  1. Heat the oven to 350ºF and grease a 13×9 inch pan.
  2. Bring some water to boil and keep it simmering while you make the batter.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer for 30 seconds.
  4. Add the 1 cup boiling water and carefully stir until the water is mixed in; beat for 1 1/2 minutes.
  5. Pour the batter into the 13×9 inch pan (batter will be thin).
  6. Bake at 350ºF for 35-38 minutes or just until the top springs back when lightly touched.
  7. Make the frosting while the cake is baking. When the cake is done, pour the warm frosting over the hot cake.

Chocolate Satin Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
6 tablespoon buttermilk (or use 6 Tbl milk mixed with 1 tsp vinegar)
4 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 (16 ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups marshmallows (optional)

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the butter, buttermilk and cocoa. Cook, stirring constantly, just until it comes to a boil; remove the pan from the heat.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, and beat with a wooden spoon or electric mixer until the frosting is nearly smooth (stir every few minutes while the cake finished baking).
  3. Add the marshmallows, then pour the warm frosting over the hot cake, gently spreading until it covers the cake evenly. Cool to room temperature before serving.
