Since I'm a Southern gal, I couldn't put together a cookbook without a recipe for Mississippi Mud Cake. After all, Frank and I met at Mississippi College, and we lived the first seven years of our married lives in The Magnolia State. This recipe is easy, and I prefer it, but if you want one that's REALLY easy, see the one for Easy Mississippi Mud Cake!
