Mississippi Mud Cake (TCS)

After baking along with The Cake Slice group for the past 15 months, I've decided that this will be my last recipe with the group (at least for now). Along with appreciating the beauty of triple layer cakes and the traditions of favorite southern cakes, I've enjoyed baking along with a supportive and enthusiastic group of bakers.

The Cake Slice group voted, and Mississippi Mud Cake came out on top as February's recipe. For me, this resembled less a cake and more a brownie, with its thin, rich and pecan-studded chocolate cake layer. If the cake alone isn't rich enough, it is topped with marshallows and a thick chocolate frosting as the cake comes out of the oven. The warmth of the cake allows the marshallow and frosting to melt into this ooey, gooey goodness.
I haven't sampled this recipe, so couldn't tell you how it tastes. My hubs took the cake to work, and he said that it was devoured in minutes. In fact, people came back looking for more...I would say a crowd pleaser, wouldn't you agree?

Your cake looks delicious. I agree it was more bronwie than cake. I bet your husband had some very happy co workers.

Sorry to hear you will be leaving the group - thanks for baking with us since the start!

i wouldn't have been able to let this leave the premises before tasting it. just a nibble, that's all i'd need. the co-workers wouldn't even be able to tell a bite was missing. :)

Great job on your cake and sad to see that you won't be baking with CS for a while. Don't stay away too long though.
