Mississippi mud cake starts with a rich chocolate cake topped with layers of marshmallow fluff, chocolate ganache, chopped nuts and coconut flakes.
So sinfully delicious, it’s quite possibly the best cake to ever cross my lips.
I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I liked to play in the mud. My love of rainy days started early on. Rain meant mud puddles. Mud puddles meant cake baking.
I would take spoons from our kitchen and make mud cakes, pies and cookies that I decorated with rocks, leaves, grass and acorns. Then I ate them. Not.
One time we ran out of teaspoons. I was in trouble. I was sent out to search the yard for them. Encrusted with dried mud they needed extra scrubbing to come clean. I was only allowed to bring one spoon at a time outside after that. Boo.
The cake is moist, dense and best of all super fudgy. Almost like a brownie. The ooey-gooey “mud” topping is delectable! Sticky-sweet, crunchy and chocolatey. Add a scoop of ice cream for a sundae or freshly whipped cream and a cherry on top.
This mud cake tastes a whole lot better than the rainy day mud cakes of my youth.
