BHG Delish Dish

Stirring Up Ideas In The Kitchen

Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake with Pumpkin Marshmallow Frosting

Today is an exciting day. BHG is about to launch The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book, 16th Edition. Being a blogger here on Delish Dish, I got a sneak peak at its pages. After looking through it (Almost all of the 1,200 recipes have pictures.) and bookmarking countless recipes, it has quickly become one of my favorite recipe collections. One thing I really love about this new cook book, is that it gives you a basic recipe such as cinnamon rolls, and then it provides options and ideas to make the recipe your own. Basically, it’s like recipes built into recipes. Endless inspiration.

BHG is giving away five copies of this wonderful new cook book. I will explain the details of the giveaway, but first I want to share a recipe with you.

Today, I’m showing you how to make this Hot Cocoa Brownie Cake with Marshmallow Frosting. However, I’m giving it a fall twist by adding a bit of pumpkin flavor to the frosting. Yum! I love chocolate and pumpkin together, and this cake combines the flavors beautifully.

The basis of the cake is a box of your favorite brownie mix. You can use a regular cake pan, although I’m using this tart pan because of the built-in groove at the top. You’ll see why this is important below.

Once the brownie cake is baked, chocolate ganache is spread on top. You really can’t have enough chocolate, right? The ganache adds a creamy layer of decadence.

The cake is finished off with marshmallow frosting. To give mine a seasonal touch, I decided to add some pumpkin flavor. I started with the original recipe for the frosting, and after it had formed stiff peaks, I added the following along with the vanilla:

4 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

These additions will make your marshmallow frosting perfectly pumpkiny!

And that’s it. Continue following the original recipe until your cake is complete.

As the days get shorter and the nights get cooler, this is a delicious after-dinner treat to snuggle up with on the couch. Enjoy!

Now, as I mentioned above, BHG and I are giving away five copies of The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book! To enter to win one of the five copies, tell us below: “What is your favorite thing to cook?” The winners will be randomly selected from the entries received. You can see the official contest rules here.

Good luck and happy cooking!

  1. My favorite thing to cook is a white cake made from scratch for desert. For the meal, stuffed baked potato…stuffed with a crawfish bisque and sprinkled with some cheese and bacon bits.

  2. I love to make desserts. Chocolate is a no-brainier, but I also like to make dishes with apples or berries. My son doesn’t like chocolate, so I’m always looking for something yummy and packed with flavor for him!

  3. I love making soups and/or stews from scratch. Just throwing together meats or legumes, veggies, spices and such to create something new and different each time. I love the ease and the warmth. Of course, you must always serve it with cornbread or some other sort of bread!

  4. I love to cook anything Mexican or Chocolate based…from scratch…

  5. Every Sunday we have roast beef or pork, potatoes and gravy, corn and a green salad or vegetable. My kids are all grown and gone, but when they come home this is the meal they request. Yum!

  9. My fave would be making lasagna my hubby!

  10. My favorite thing to cook is meat sauce that my mom has been making for years (and I think it came from her BHG cookbook!). I’ve added my own twists to the sauce, but I love how comforting it is and that I can make it without even looking at the recipe.

  11. My favorite thing to cook is my secret recipe cheesecake. It’s three layers and has to cook over a 2-day period. It’s truly the best, creamiest cheesecake ever!

I love making the pastry crust although it takes a lot more time and work opposed to just buying a thing of pie crust dough. To me the store bought just does not taste as good but will work in a pinch. I don’t use the can of apple filling either. I cut up the apples coat them in spices and I make the homemade syrup for the dumplings as well. I get so many compliments when I make them. I am known as the dessert lady for get togethers and that brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. I take pride in my baking and it comes from heart :o)

  42. I live in Canada so my entry is void….Shame!
    My very first cookbook (which I bought when I became engaged to my now husband of 34 years) was the plaid BHG cookbook.
    It’s pages have yellowed, and become tattered and stained with use. Many years ago in an attempt to save the cover from additional wear, I covered it with clear MacTac….
    On the back cover, you can still see where I wrote in ink: “My First Cook Book” 1979
    Over the years many other cook books have come and gone, but this one is still my main reference!
    Many pages have bookmarks — usually a poem or small piece of artwork my children drew and I wanted to keep–Sometimes when I open the book to find a recipe, it makes me smile to see these keepsakes. My children are adults now and I have young grandchildren—perhaps their artwork will also find a place holding a favourite recipe in my book!
    What’s my favourite recipe? There are too many….but I would have to say making Homemade Waffles!
    Thanks for the recipes, and thanks for the memories!

  43. I love to make desserts in general but I love making cupcakes. All kinds. Margarita cupcakes and honey lavender were some recently enjoyed.

  152. It’s very hard for me to pick just one thing, because I totally love cooking. It changes with the season for me. Right now it is all about canning and freezing from the garden for winter. So, right now my favorite thing to cook is spaghetti sauce. From scratch, nothing canned all from my garden, a friend’s garden or the farmers market (like mushrooms). I start with nice plump tomatoes, steamed, peeled, cooled, cored then diced. In a separate pan I saute onions, garlic and mushrooms. When their done I add them in with the tomatoes (which by now I have used a hand blender on). Then I add my spices and cook it all down. Then cool it, can it for later use. When I use it, I brien off whatever meat i want in it. That way one recipe gets me sauce with beef, buffalo, ground chicken or Turkey!

And anything that has bell pepper and onion sautéed in it almost makes me feel her right next to me! I also love to bake Christmas cookies! I make a lot, so the freezer is cleaned out just before Christmas and I make 2 batches of cookies every weekend and then freeze them! My mothers sugar cookies, my preachers wife’s chewy molasses cookies, chocolate mint cookies, and chocolate and cherry chip cookies. Anything Thanksgiving related is wonderful also!
