Chocolate cake that bakes with its own pudding – what more can you ask for? It had been ages since I had this cake. Mom used to make it when I was little. Sometimes I requested it for my birthday. Last weekend, we dug around in Mom’s recipe box until we found the instructions for this cake.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Devil’s Food cake mix + the ingredients needed to make the batter (I didn’t put those in the picture)
12 marshmallows, snipped in quarters or about a cup or so of mini marshmallows
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 cups water
In a 13×9 pan, mix the brown sugar and cocoa together. Stir in 2 cups of water. Scatter the marshmallows over the top.
Mix up the cake batter and spoon it over the top of the mixture in the pan.
Be careful transferring the pan to the oven. It is very sloshy with all that water in the bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min.
Serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream if you like. The pudding is on the bottom and I just drizzled it over the top of the pieces as I spooned them out of the pan. The cake didn’t even last 24 hours and I only ate one piece! I better make another one soon.
