Mississippi Fudge Cake

mississppi fudge cake

From Nita S.:

After my mother passed away, my daddy gave me all her recipes with the comment that "you come from a long line of good cooks." How I wish that talent had passed on to me! But here is one of my favorites of my mother's recipes.

We were a family that loved desserts. I remember holiday get-togethers where there would be one whole table just for desserts. Pies, cakes, candy, cookies, all piled high and my cousins and I couldn't wait to dive in.

Back then, the women served while the men ate and all us kids had our own table (a card table) in another room . Once the men were served then the ladies could sit down and enjoy their meal. It was nothing for the meal to last for hours while all lingered to talk and enjoy their dessert.

Mississippi Fudge Cake
2 sticks margarine, melted
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Mix margarine, sugar and eggs. Add flour and cocoa; mix. Pour into oblong baking pan or dish. Sprinkle pecans over top. Bake 25 minutes in preheated 325F oven. When cake tests done, remove and add 1 package miniature marshmallows on top. Bake another 10 minutes, or until marshmallows are melted. Remove from oven and cool before slicing.
