Mississippi Mud Cake

Mississippi Mud Cake by Russell van Kraayenburg at Chasing Delicious

I often find myself writing about rainy days. I suppose it’s because that’s when I find myself hiding in the kitchen, passing the time with sweet concoctions and delicious treats. Or maybe it’s just because I love rainy days and the quiet, blanket-hugging activities they tend to inspire. Whatever the reason, many of my recipes seem to come from rainy thoughts.

So, here I find myself writing about another rainy day. And here is another sweet treat, piled high with chocolate, meringue, and pecans. I don’t have much more to say, so I’ll leave you with this recipe.

Italian Meringue: Since the meringue isn’t cooked on top of the cake, italian meringue is required (as italian meringue doesn’t require additional cooking). If you’re not up for making italian meringue, you can substitute it with marshmallows in this recipe. In fact, that’s the traditional way to make most Mississippi Mud Cakes. I prefer italian meringue for the flavor and because you can pipe it into elegant swirls like in this recipe.
