Some days are no fun, and other days are just bad. The kind of bad that can only be fixed with this Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cake Recipe. You know what I mean. You’ve done everything right, and yet everything goes wrong.
It’s best to just sit down in a quiet place and eat a piece of cake (ok, who are we kidding, when we’ve had THAT kind of day, we’re taking the whole darn cake to our quiet place…. and MAYBE we’ll bother with a fork).
Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cake is the recipe that you find behind the little glass panel that says “break in case of emergency”. (Turns out… if you keep the cake behind the glass it gets moldy and covered in broken glass… Better to start fresh).
This is the cake you bake on those days….You know the days I’m talking about…
-you have 3 kids who need to be in 5 places, all at the same time… and it’s raining.
-Surprise!!! It’s your turn to host the Girl Scout Sleepover!!!
-Oh fun… there is a lice epidemic at school.
-the dog hacked up something that you think you might be able to identify as your favorite scarf.
-it’s Tuesday (because, really, for some reason Tuesday is hard.)
The Emergency Chocolate Cake recipe comes together in a snap using very few tools, and it’s frosted and served WARM (none of that sitting around staring at the cake, willing it to get cool enough to frost). MMMMMMMmmmmm Makes me happy just thinking about it. This is not some sophisticated creation…it’s a warm, comforting, chocolatey, hunk of gooey goodness.
And suddenly, you are ready to tackle anything, even 8 tone deaf Teenage boys playing Rock Band.

Step By Step Instructions for Ooey Gooey Chocolate Cake Recipe with Color Photos!
Melt the Butter, Shortening, Cola and Cocoa all together
I use a microwave, but you can use a pot on the stove.
In true emergency situations, you might be able to leave a pot of this on the front seat of your car on a hot day. Solar cooking… it’s good for the environment.
Mix up the Dry Stuff
Flour, Sugar, Baking Soda
Don’t go nuts… just kind of stir it up
Pour the Melted Butter Mixture into the Flour Mixture
Now Stir it up….
See, I just used a spatula… no need to haul out the mixer
Add the Eggs
Add the Buttermilk
Add the Miniature Marshmallows
Pour into the Baking Pan
Make Sure You have Enough Marshmallows… Kind of Spread them Out… Then Bake
under the batter so they are covered in brownish goo.
Bake for 40 Minutes
Take Out of the Oven
While the Cake is Baking…. Make the Icing
Stir Until all the Powdered Sugar Bits are Dissolved Into the Icing
But don’t go nuts… you can’t let a few white flecks from sugar wreck your day. Anyone says anything? Give them “the Look”.
Pour the Hot Icing over the Hot Cake
Spread the Icing Over the Cake
Yes, it will be thicker in some parts than others… make note of these parts to set aside for yourself
Scoop a Hunk out For Yourself or Someone You Love
The Cake is Soft and Gooey
Tough to say what’s better, the thick icing at the edge, or the gooey middle….
