I found this while surfing the web, but I cannot for the life of me remember where. I like it better than the ones with coconut.

    1 cup sugar

    3/4 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    dash of salt

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    make the cake: cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating well. add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. beat in vanilla. combine flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa, and add to creamed mixture. stir in the nuts if you use them. spoon batter into a greased 13 x 9 glass baking pan. bake at 325 for 18 minutes.
    remove cake from oven and immediately cover top with marshmallows. put back into oven for 4 minutes, or til marshmallows are soft. remove cake from oven and spread the marshmallows over the top to completely cover, then immediately top with the chocolate frosting (below). let frosting harden before cutting cake (if you can!).

    chocolate frosting:
    1/4 cup butter
    6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
    1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons warm milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
