1 package plain Devil’s food cake mix, 1 stick melted butter, 1 1/2 cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 bag mini marshmallows, 1 cup chopped pecans (optional).
Pour the cake mix, melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend on low speed for one minute. Scrape down sides and continue blending for two minutes on medium speed. The batter should be well blended. Pour batter into a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan. Bake cake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove pan from oven. Turn off oven.
Sprinkle marshmallows and pecans on warm cake and return the cake to the oven for five minutes while the marshmallows begin to melt. Remove cake from oven and top with Chocolate Pan Frosting (see Frosting category).
