Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 (10-inch) baking pans with nonstick baking spray with flour.

In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed. In another large bowl, add the eggs and vanilla and beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy. Slowly add butter mixture, beating until combined.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. Gradually add to the sugar mixture, alternately with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Beat until just combined after each addition. Slowly add the boiling water, beating until just combined. Spoon the batter evenly into the prepared pans, and bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 28 to 34 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Remove the cakes and let them cool completely on wire racks.

Just before serving, sprinkle marshmallows and pecans evenly over the top and drizzle with fudge sauce. Store the cake, covered, in refrigerator.
