This is one of those throw together cakes. It took about 5 minutes to get it made. The frosting takes longer than the cake to make. My kids all licked off the icing, then devoured the cake. I brought this to a church potluck and I was very tempted to eat just cake for lunch, but I thought it might look funny if I sat down with 3 pieces of cake and no other food.
This recipe came from someone in my family, but is probably all over the internet. You could top it with a fudge icing and marshmallows and nuts mashed into the icing... or top yourself with that. But personally, I love it with the custard icing! A great cake!
ROCKY ROAD CAKE
|The shiny spots are where the marshmallows melted: little pockets of sweetness.|
- 1 box devil's food cake mix
- 1- 3 oz. pkg. chocolate pudding
- 1 cup mayonaise
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup water
- 1/2-3/4 cup choc. chips (I did 3/4)

NOTE: The marshmallows do melt into the cake, and create little pockets of sweetness.
