Mississippi (Mud Cake)

This week in our study of Southeastern states is Mississippi. The capital of Mississippi is Jackson. Did you know that the word Mississippi is an Indian word that means "The Father of Waters"? Here's a really yummy recipe to try...


Mississippi Mud Cake

INGREDIENTS:
1 c. butter
1/3 c. cocoa
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 c. flour
1-1/2 c. pecans, chopped
1 (9 oz.) jar marshmallow creme

Icing:
1/3 c. milk
1/2 stick margarine
1/3 c. cocoa
1 box powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

PREPARATION:
  1. Prepare 15" x 10" pan with butter and flour.
  2. Melt butter and cocoa in large saucepan.
  3. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, and pecans. Mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove cake from oven.
  6. Spread marshmallow creme while cake is still warm.
  7. When cake is cooled, spread icing on cake.

To prepare icing:
Heat milk, margarine, and cocoa together. Add powdered sugar and vanilla.


I have to say for "mud" cake it was mighty good. If all that butter and sugar scares you I'd think twice before making this. We ate healthy through the holidays so this didn't hurt for us to try. If you are from Mississippi feel free to share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to share what's next in our study of the Southeastern states. Thank you for stopping by to learn along with us.
