S'mores Cake

This was one delicious snack cake!! It doesn't take exactly like a s'mores would taste but close enough for me to eat several slices at one time! I would add more marshmallows next time and more chocolate chips. The marshmallows melt away so you definitely want more of those. I found the recipe in the book The Complete Idiot's Guide to Snack Cakes. A strange title for a book but it has some great cake recipes and they are all pretty simple!

Like I mentioned in my last blog, I am looking so forward to meeting Ree from The Pioneer Woman Cooks!!!! I am going up to Borders in Fairfax county this evening with my husband and son and will take turns standing in line to meet her and have my cookbook signed! I plan to take some pics and will post them on my blog! I hope I don't make a complete idiot of myself when I talk to her - I have a knack for doing that when I get nervous!!!!

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups graham crackers

1/2 cup all purpose flour

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup mini marshmallows

1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9 x 13 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Beat butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.

Stir together graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder and add alternately with milk. Fold in marshmallows and chocolate chips.

Transfer batter to prepared pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
