Ingredients
  • 200g McDougalls Self Raising Flour
  • 250g Billington's Golden Caster Sugar
  • 1½tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 110g Cadbury Bournville Cocoa
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 250ml skimmed milk
  • 125ml vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 1tbsp vanilla extract
  • 200g Asda Classic Flavour Marshmallows
  • 4 light digestive biscuits, crumbled
  • 30g Dr. Oetker Fine Cooks' Milk Chocolate, finely chopped
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Grease 3 x 20cm loose-bottom sandwich cake tins and line with nonstick baking paper.

  • In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, cocoa, eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Stir in 250ml boiling water until smooth, then divide evenly between the prepared tins.

  • Bake for 25-30 mins or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 mins, then turn out onto a wire rack, peel off the paper and allow to cool completely.

  • Put the marshmallows in a nonstick pan over a low heat and melt for 2 mins.

  • Spread ⅓ of the melted marshmallow on each layer of sponge, then top with the biscuits. Sandwich the layers together, then sprinkle over the chocolate to serve.
