S’mores Cake

I think s’mores are the epitome of summer. Normally, I’d enjoy these campfire treats at a cottage over a bonfire. Since I don’t own either (a cottage or a fire pit), I figured I’d bring the flavours of s’mores to the kitchen with this mouthwatering S’mores Cake.

S’mores Cake

It has the same familiar flavours of s’mores that we all love. The base is a graham cracker cake that is incredibly moist and practically melts in your mouth. The middle layer is silky rich chocolate ganache. The topping is my favourite though. Toasted marshmallows. Ahhhhh. Pure heaven.

My sister is getting married this week and I made this cake to bring to her bridal shower a few weekends ago. I cut the pieces extra small so everyone could have a taste. THERE WAS SOOOO MUCH FOOD. I didn’t think it would get eaten as quickly as it did because of how many amazing dishes there were to try. Everyone was raving about how good the cake was and a few even asked for the recipe. Here ya go, friends.

    In another bowl, stir the graham cracker crumbs, flour and baking powder, Pour the egg mixture in and stir to combine. Then pour the mixture into the baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes at 350F.

    Once your cake has baked and cooled a bit, start preparing the chocolate ganache. You can use a double boiler here to be on the safe side. I was lazy and just did it in a saucepan over very low heat so I wouldn’t burn the chocolate. Add the chocolate and heavy cream to a small saucepan and melt over low heat, stirring constantly. Once the chocolate is melted, pour it over the cake.

    The last step is to make the marshmallow topping which is just marshmallows! Preheat your own to broil on LOW heat. Place marshmallows on top of the chocolate ganache. Broil for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Make sure you watch it because it BURNS quickly!!!

    Remove from the oven and let it cool at room temperature for 15 minutes before transferring it to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve!

    I don’t mind my marshmallows a little burnt, but I was hoping they’d be just a little toasty for the shower since not everyone shares my taste.

    When I roast marshmallows over the fire, I always wait till they have some black patches on them. So yummy! This S’mores Cake is the next best thing.

      Stacie, my husband found the addition of marshmallows was too sweet. I substituted with fresh fruit and it was delicious. My friend who is a baker liked the density of the cake and thought this was a winner.
