- For the cake:
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup shortening
- 4 eggs
- 3 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1/3 teaspoon salt
- 1 (6 1/2-ounce) bag mini marshmallows
- For the frosting:
- 2 sticks butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1 box powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the sugar and shortening together. Add eggs and vanilla and beats 30 seconds. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, cocoa and salt together. Add to the mixture and beat until well combined. Pour the mixture into a greased and floured 9 by13-inch pan. Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes.
- Remove pan from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Spread the marshmallows on top of the cake and return the pan to the oven for 5 more minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Evenly apply the frosting. Allow this to stand about 2 hours before cutting into squares.
- Note: If the marshmallows are too hot, the frosting will sink right through. The frosting should be the top layer. It will darken once it hits the heat of the cake.
- To make the frosting: In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter, cocoa, powdered sugar and vanilla. Slowly add the milk.
