  • 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup whole milk

For the icing:

  • 5 tbsp whole milk
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 35o degrees F and grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Next, combine 2 1/4 cups of flour, 3/4 cups of cocoa powder, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and 2 tsp of baking powder in a mixing bowl. Whisk well and set aside. In another bowl, combine 2 cups of sugar, 3/4 cup of milk, 1 cup of vegetable oil, four large eggs, and 1 tsp of vanilla. Whisk well, then combine both wet and dry ingredients.

Step 2

While waiting, make the frosting. Melt 1/2 cup of unsalted butter in a pan. Once it melts, add 3 tbsp of cocoa powder and 5 tbsp of milk. Whisk until combined. After this, add 3 cups of confectioners’ sugar one cup at a time while whisking continuously. Now, after you remove the cake from the oven, add one bag of mini marshmallows, sprinkle the chopped pecans, and pour the chocolate frosting all over the top. Serve and enjoy!
