  • 8 tablespoons room temperature Food Club sweet cream unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Food Club light brown, packed
  • 1 teaspoon Food Club baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Food Club baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Food Club iodized salt
  • 1 teaspoon Food Club pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Food Club unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/3 cups Food Club all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Food Club milk, at room temperature

For the filling:

  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup Food Club confectioners sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups Food Club marshmallow creme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Food Club pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or line with parchment paper two baking sheets. To make the cakes: 
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla until smooth. Add the egg and cocoa powder beating until smooth.
  3. Add the flour to the batter alternately with the milk, beating until smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl, and beat again briefly to get smooth.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop and drop approx. 1/4 cupful of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving plenty of room between the cakes because they'll spread out.
  5. Bake the cakes for 15 minutes or until they're set and firm to the touch.
  6. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool on the pans for 10-15 mins. While still partly warm, use a spatula to separate them from the pan or parchment. Allow to cool completely.
  7. To make the filling: Beat together the shortening, sugar, and marshmallow until well combined.
  8. Dissolve the salt in the water, and add to the marshmallow mixture. Add the vanilla, and beat until smooth.
  9. Once cakes are cooled completely, spread filling on the flat side of half the cakes. Top with the remaining cakes, flat side towards the filling. Serve and enjoy!
