A camping favorite — without the bugs


Nearly every Blazer has had at least one chance to enjoy the sticky sweetness of a just-roasted marshmallow, the crunchy taste of graham crackers and the creamy warmth of chocolate. But for many, this taste is only available in the wilderness, where campfires are legal, or in the microwave, where the result is often explosive. Fortunately, the taste of S'mores can be easily replicated in the form of a cake. A sticky but sweet treat, the cake has the flavor of both marshmallows and chocolate, with the added zest of sponge cake. This S'more cake is a perfect way to recreate your favorite rustic treat in the warm, bear-free environment of your own kitchen.

Makes 12 servingsPreparation time: 45 minutes
