I've made this cake for 20 + years and it's sooo good. I always mix the marshmellows in the batter they float to the top. If you poke holes in the top w/ a toothpick the icing flows into the hot cake, YUM!

This cake was awesome. I decided to make it spur of the moment at a church youth function and everyone devoured it. :)

The recipe said to mix 1st seven ingredients and then heat next four ingredients and gradually add to first mixture. I did not think that it would be ok to heat eggs so I heated the margerine, shortening, coke and marshmallows (the last four ingredients on the list). I then read that I was supposed to put the marshmallows in the cake pan under the batter. I am going to go forward to see what happens. Should I have heated the eggs with the margerine, shortening, coke and marshmallows?

15 minutes needed to be added to the baking time. Eight people tested this cake. In a score of 1 to 5 three gave it a 9 the rest gave it a 3 1/2 to 4 1/2. The only complaint was "to sweet." This cake will travel very well and improves on day two and three. It couldn't be rated on subsequent days since it was gone. This is an excellent cake, heavy, moist, rich, for chocolate lovers. Frosting: substitute cola with water and use on other cakes. This is good too.
