  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 (1-pound) box confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

  • Combine the sugar, salt, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Bring the butter, oil, cocoa, and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add to the flour mixture.

  • Beat together the eggs, baking soda, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add to the chocolate mixture, mix well, and pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes.

  • While the cake is baking, make the icing by melting the butter in the cocoa and milk over low heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then remove from the heat. Stir in the confectioners' sugar. Slowly mix in the nuts and the vanilla. Take the cake from the oven, and when it cools a bit cover it with miniature marshmallows. Pour the warm icing over the cake and the marshmallows. Cool the cake before serving.
