Smores cake

I decided to bake a smores cake because it is a summer treat and I am tired of cold weather and want it to be sunny and warm. I have also put out our patio furniture, hoping to hurry nice weather! So if it rains the next ten days, it is my fault! 😉

Cake ingredients

  • Chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350. (325 if using non stick coated pans)
  • Combine eggs, oil, buttermilk and Greek yogurt. Add cake mix and chocolate chips. Blend well.
  • Spray two cake pans with baking spray
  • Divide batter evenly into each (I used a one cup measuring cup to do so)
  • Bake 15-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center basically comes out clean
  • Cool completely

Toasted marshmallows

  • Place marshmallows on a tray lined with toin foil and sprayed with Pam. Broil on high for a few minutes. Set aside.

Chocolate buttercream ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups butter (softened)
  • Heaping half cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbs Greek yogurt
  • 3 cups powdered yogurt

Directions

  • Beat butter 2 minutes
  • Beat in cocoa, vanilla and Greek yogurt
  • Slowly blend in powdered sugar, one cup at a time.

Assembly

  • Spread a thin layer of buttercream on top
  • Gently press down a few toasted marshmallows
  • Place second cake layer, flat side down on top of buttercream/marshmallows
  • Frost with remainder of frosting
  • Gently press remaining toasted marshmallows on top.
