  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease one 9x13 inch cake pan.
  2. In a large sauce pan over low heat, melt 1 cup of the butter with the cocoa. Stir often. Remove from heat and add white sugar, beat well. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and stir into the egg mixture. Stir in the chopped nuts and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 45 minutes. Remove cake from oven and spread the marshmallow cream over the cake. Spoon chocolate icing over marshmallow topping while the cake is still hot and spread. The cake will get "muddied" by the spreading action.
  5. To Make Icing: Beat together the remaining 1/4 cup butter, 1/3 cup cocoa, 1 teaspoon vanilla, the milk, and the confectioner's sugar. Once well combined spoon over the still hot cake.

Awesome Cake, made it for a family get together and everyone loved it. The only thing i changed was substituting pecans for the walnuts. And I will probably only bake it 30 minutes the next time...

This is not really cake but rather a brownie with a sweet frosting. I have a true sweet tooth and this was too sweet for me.

4.5 stars! But three things: 1) I forgot the nuts; 2) I made it the night before and served it cold -- which I loved; and 3) I was appalled by the amount of sugar in this recipe and had to reduc...

I have been searching for this recipe, it is very close to one my grandma used to make! Thank You, it's awesome!
