Mississipi Mud Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Margarine
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 1/2 cup Peanuts, chopped
  • 2 cups Miniature Marshmellows

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Melt the margarine in a saucepan. Add in the cocoa and stir until blended.

Remove the saucepan from the heat, add the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and mix them all together.

Combine the flour, salt and the nuts in a bowl, and stir so that the nuts are coated with the flour. Add this gradually to the mixture in the saucepan.

Spoon this onto a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan and bake for about 35 minutes in the preheated oven. Spread the marshmellows onto the warm cake.

When the cake cools, you will notice the reasoning behind its name. It may not look like much, but it surely tastes great.
