Heavenly Hash Cake Recipe

1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbls. cocoa
1 cup chopped pecans, optional
1 cup butter, melted
4 large eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 bag large marshmallows

Directions for cake:

Step 1:
Blend all dry ingredients together well.

Step 2:
Add melted butter, eggs, and vanilla and mix well.

Step 3:
Pour into 9x13 pan and bake in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.

Step 4:
While cake is baking, cut 1/2 bag of large marshmallows in half and save. (To make it easier, Use kitchen scissors to cut marshmallows rather than knife).

Step 5:
After cake is baked, place cut sides of marshmallows on cake to cover entire cake and press marshmallows down lightly to melt them a little. Let cake cool COMPLETELY before icing.

Icing Ingredients:
1 pkg. powdered sugar, sifted to remove any lumps
3/4 stick butter, melted
1 1/2 - 2 Tbl. cocoa
2 cups pecans, chopped
10 Tbls. evaporated milk (or till smooth enough to be spread)

Directions for icing:

Step 1:
Sift powdered sugar in large bowl. Add cocoa (make lighter or darker as preferred) and mix well. Add chopped pecans and mix well.

Step 2:
Add melted butter and begin adding evaporated milk a tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition. Do NOT make too thin. You want the icing to be the consistency of a thin fudge.

Step 3:
Ice the cake with a butter knife or a cake spatula - the marshmallows should not be melted all the way through. The icing should sit on top of the marshmallow tops.
