    This a favorite cake at our house and we don't eat many cakes, but they love this, and I never throw ANY out when I make it.

    1 Cup Butter
    1/2 Cup Cocoa

    Melt butter and cocoa together on low heat. Remove and stir in, mixing well:

    4 eggs, slightly beaten
    2 Cups Sugar

    Add:

    1 1/2 Cups Self Rising Flour
    Pinch Salt ( a pinch is less than 1/8th teaspoon)
    1 1/2 Cups chopped nuts
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Mix well.

    Spoon batter into a greased and floured 13x9x2" pan. Bake at 350 for 35 to 45 minutes...I try for about 35 personally.

    Sprinkle Miniature Marshmallows on top of the hot cake. I let these sit for a bit, sometimes I cover the cake while it cools for a minute with the marshmallows on top.Cover with the chocolate frosting below while cake is still warm:

    **Frosting:

    1 pound box confectioners sugar
    1/2 cup whole milk
    1/3 cup cocoa
    1/2 stick butter
    Combine sugar, Milk, cocoa, and soft butter. Mix until smooth and spread on hot cake.


    (If you use that frosting recipe the way it sits you will have a TON of icing, so I use enough powdered sugar and milk to get it to a good spreading consistency, about half or a little more of what it says. If you are making 2 cakes, it would work out about right)

    I use the full amounts of butter and cocoa, and it works up good.

    Sorry if this is hard to follow I never typed a recipe for others before....Maybe I shouldn't have given any hints and helps :/. Hope everyone that tries it enjoys it.
