Mississippi Mudd Cake

Desserts

 

Just like all around the country, it is scorching here.  For us that means dinner is BBQ, cold sandwiches, or a trip to eat out.  However, yesterday we got a wonderful afternoon thunderstorm and the temperature dropped 30 degrees in 30 minutes.  That is the beauty of living in the mountains.  So, I had time to make a cake!

I found this recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago but while morning sickness was raging, sweets were NOT my thing.  Ask Clint’s co-workers….he was asked more than once why he had not been bringing treats lately.

This is a VERY sweet treat.  I cut it in to small bars and served it with a tall glass of ice cold milk.  The frosting is amazing and the nuts in the cake make it perfect.
