Heritage Recipe

Oklahoma Mud

I am proud to be a Congressman from the Fourth District of Oklahoma. But nothing thrills me more than being called Dad or youth minister. It was such a privilege to be an influence on young lives and help steer and guide them through the tumultuous teen years. Cultural renewal in this country requires that the strong institutions like church, family, community, schools be strengthened and I got a firsthand lesson on that topic as a youth minister. This particular recipe came in handy with all of our church functions. It serves a bunch of hungry kids. We served this at a lot of church suppers when I was a youth minister.

Ingredients
2 cups sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) margarine - melted
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 cups coconut
1-1/2 cups chopped nuts - (pecans are great!)
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1 jar marshmallow cream
1 box powdered sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine, melted
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Cream together (first 4 ingredients) the sugar, 2 sticks margarine, eggs and a teaspoon vanilla. Mix together flour, coconut, chopped nuts, and 3 tablespoons cocoa then fold into the creamed mixture. Spread into a 9 x 13-inch greased and floured pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.

After removing from oven, immediately spread one jar of marshmallow cream over the top and while it cools, make icing.

Mix powdered sugar, 1 stick margarine, cocoa, evaporated milk and 1 tablespoon vanilla well and spread it over the cooled cake.
