Mississippi Mud Cake

I’ve eaten this delicious chocolate concoction as long as I remember. It was at every family reunion and picnic that I ever went to. Be warned, it is good for a reason. There is alot of butter in there. If that bothers you, go sit by somebody else. Sometimes a girl just needs some good old fashioned chocolate!

4 eggs

2 cups sugar

4 Tablespoons cocoa

2 STICKS butter

2 Tablespoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups self-rising flour

2 cups pecans

Mix ingredients. Pour into greased and floured 11″X14″ oblong pan. This is a THICK batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.  Remove from oven and IMMEDIATELY cover with miniature marshmellows. Put back in oven for a couple of minutes until melted.


2 Tablespoons butter

1/2 box confectioners sugar

2 Tablespoons cocoa

4 Tablespoons evaporated milk

Mix well. Spoon over the melted marshmellow and spread. It will mix and create a “marbled” look. It’s all good.

    One of my favorites — minus the pecans, of course, since I can’t eat nuts!
