    Mississippi Mud Cake

    1 cup butter or margarine, softened
    2 cups sugar
    4 eggs
    1-1/2 cups self rising flour*
    1/2 cup baking cocoa
    1 cup chopped pecans
    1 jar (7oz) marshmallow creme

    Frosting:
    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    3-3/4 cups confectioners sugar
    3 tablespoons baking cocoa
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    4 to 5 tablespoon milk
    1 cup chopped pecans

    In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour and cocoa; gradually add to creamed mixture. Fold in the pecans. Transfer to a greased 13x9 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 3 minutes (cake will fall in center).

    Spoon the marshmallow creme over cake; carefully spread to cover top. Cool completely. For frosting, in a mixing bowl, cream butter. Beat in confectioners' sugar, cocoa, vanilla and enough milk to achieve frosting consistency. Fold in pecans. Spread over marshmallow creme layer. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 16-20 servings


    *Editors note: As a substitute for each 1/2 cup of self-rising flour, place 3/4 t. baking powder and 1/4 t. salt in a 1/2 cup measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1/2.
