  • 60 gr Unsweetened cocoa – 3/4 cup

  • 2 tsps Baking powder

  • 1 1/2 tsps Baking soda

  • 3/4 tsp Salt

  • 180 gr Vegetable oil – 3/4 cup

  • 2 large Eggs

  • 2 Tbsps Glycerin

  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

  • 85 gr Milk – 6 Tbsps

  • 80 gr Sour cream – 1/3 cup

  • 240 gr Boiling water – 1 cup

  • For the topping
  • 10 Mini Mini marshmallow – 1 beg

  • 113 gr Butter – 1/2 cup

  • 85 gr Milk – 6 Tbsps

  • 20 gr Unsweetened cocoa powder – 3 heaping Tbsps

  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

  • 360 gr Confectioners’ sugar – 3 cups

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×13” baking pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugars, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add oil, eggs, vanilla, glycerin, milk and sour cream and mix until combined. Carefully pour in the boiling water. Whisk well for 1 minute to add air to the batter.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 28-33 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove cake from oven and sprinkle marshmallows all over the top of the hot cake, completely covering it. Return to oven at the same temperature for 2-3 minutes or until the marshmallows are just slightly puffed and melted. Allow cake to cool completely before drizzling frosting on top.
  • For the frosting
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add milk and cocoa powder and whisk well. Cook for about 2-3 more minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and powdered sugar. Use an electric mixer to make the frosting smooth.
  • Drizzle warm frosting immediately over cake. Refrigerate cake for about 30 minutes or until frosting has set. Store at room temperature.
