S'mores Bundt Cake: 2 Recipes for National S'mores Day!

If you follow my blog, you know I love S'mores, and I've posted over 60 S'mores Recipes. In all these S'mores recipes, I've never posted a S'mores Bundt Cake Recipe. So in honor of National S'mores Day here are two easy and delicious recipes, for S'mores Bundt Cakes.

The first recipe is from Cuisinart! I've mentioned many times, that you should always check recipes at food association sites, but also products. Use your cuisinart (or whatever you have) to make this. It will be so easy!


1 1/2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp Madagascar vanilla extract
1/2 cup boiling water
11 whole graham cracker sheets
3 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 stick butter, at room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup marshmallow cream

In mixer bowl combine sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; mix until dry ingredients are combined. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla; mix until just combined and then add hot water and mix for 20-30 more seconds.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Pulse graham cracker sheets in food processor until coarse crumb is formed; add in brown sugar, melted butter, and 2-3 Tbsp warm water and pulse until combined. Mixture should hold its shape when formed. If it doesn’t, continue to add small amounts of water until it does.
Prepare Bundt pan by coating with cooking spray. Press all but 1/2 cup of graham cracker mixture evenly into bottom of pan and an inch or two up the sides. Next, pour in chocolate batter. Sprinkle reserved graham cracker crumbs over top.
Bake for 55-65 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. With electric mixture beat together  butter and powdered sugar for several minutes until very smooth and creamy. Add in marshmallow cream and beat until well combined.
When the cake comes out of oven, let cool for 10 minutes and then turn out onto cooling rack.
When cake has completely cooled, spread frosting over top.
Take a kitchen torch and burn a bit to give it that real s'mores look and taste.

So if one recipe is good, two is even better. This second S'mores Bundt Cake is slightly adapted from Miriam Pascal at
