Mississippi MUD Cake Recipe

Guest Author - Launa Stout

Where did the name come from? Who wants to eat something with mud in the title of the recipe?

You will, once you try these Mississippi Mud Brownies and Mississippi Mud Cake. Actually, I think the name came from the “Muddy Mississippi River” and how these desserts look like the thick brown mud along the Mississippi River.


Mississippi Mud Brownies

Gather all your ingredients and have them lined up on the counter before you start:

• 1 cup butter
• 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 2 c white sugar
• 4 eggs
• 2 tsp. vanilla
• 1 ˝ c white flour
• ˝ cup chopped pecans
• 1 (10.5 ounce) bag of miniature marshmallows

Frosting:
• 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 4 cups powdered sugar
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup milk

Follow these steps:
1. Turn the oven on to 350 degrees F. to preheat.
2. Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
3. Use a large saucepan over medium heat- melt 1 cup of butter.
4. Remove the pan from the stove and stir in the cocoa until it is smooth.
5. In a large bowl mix the white sugar,eggs and 2 tsp. vanilla.
6. Pout mixture from saucepan into large bowl and continue to stir.
7. Mix the flour into this mix.
8. Fold in the pecans and marshmallows

Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven and when the brownies start to pull away from the sides of the pan they are ready to come out of the oven.
Cool them in the pan.

Frosting:
1. Use a medium saucepan to melt ˝ cup butter and 1/3 cup cocoa powder.
2. Mix in the powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.
3. Beat the milk to this mixture, but only about 1 Tbsp at a time until it is the spreading consistancy you want.
