Mississippi Mud Cake

This cake is too good to be true!! Everyone loves it from the very young to very old. It comes from "Kitchen Keepsakes" cookbook and you will be making it often.
  • 2 sticks margarine or butter(although I think margarine works better in this)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour(I use King Arthur or Pillsbury)
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 cup coconut


  • 1 Small jar marshmallow creme
  • 1- 1 LB. box powdered sugar
  • 1 stick margarine or butter, softened(either works well here)
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

For cake: Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine cocoa, flour, pecans and coconut in bowl and combine with spoon or wire whisk. Add to other ingredients. Mix well. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes.

Frosting: Spoon marshmallow creme over WARM cake. Let soften, then spread over cake. Blend softened margarine with sugar; add other ingredients, mixing well. Spread over marshmallow layer, that has cooled slightly. This is heavenly!!!
