Chocolate Cake

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (OR 1 c. milk mixed with 1 T. vinegar)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Chocolate Marshmallow Frosting

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 6 Tablespoons milk
  • 4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups marshmallows

Heat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9X13 inch pan. Bring a small pan of water to a boil and keep it simmering while you mix the other ingredients.

In a large mixing bowl combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla. Beat with mixer until combined.

Add 1 cup of the boiling water and carefully stir until it is mixed in. Beat for 1 1/2 minutes with mixer. Batter will be thin. Pour the batter into pan and bake for 35-38 minutes.

Make the frosting while the cake is baking. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the milk and cocoa. Stir constantly, just until it comes to a boil; then remove pan from heat.

Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, beat with a mixer until the frosting is nearly smooth. Continue to stir every few minutes while the cake is baking. When the cake is done, add the marshmallows to the frosting and stir until they are coated. Immediately pour the warm frosting over the cake. Gently spread until it covers the cake evenly. Serve warm!

I highly recommend serving this cake warm…
about 30-60 minutes after it comes out of the oven is perfect.
You will have difficulty not eating the entire cake!
