I don't have kids, but I have held onto this recipe for years because it just sounds like so much fun. Please let me know if you try it.
CRATERS OF THE MOON CAKE
From the Detroit News by News Special Writer Geri Rinschler
1 ½ cups sifted all-purpose flour
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp cocoa powder
5 Tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp white vinegar
1 cup milk
2/3 cup miniature marshmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Take a 9 or 10-inch cake pan and put flour, sugars, salt, and cocoa right in the pan. Mix carefully. When you have stirred it very well, you will have the light brown moon sand.
Take a spoon and make a big crater in the center so the bottom of the pan shows through. Make a medium-sized crater elsewhere in the sand and another little crater on the other side.
Spoon baking soda into medium-sized crater. Pour the melted butter into the large crater. Pour the vanilla into the smallest crater.
Pour the vinegar into the medium-sized crater and watch how it becomes a bubbling foaming volcano. When the volcano stops foaming, pour the milk over the moon sand and carefully mix everything together until it looks like smooth mud.
Scatter marshmallows over the surface. Bake for around 35 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the cake's center comes out dry. Let the cake cool in the pan. Cut portions of moon and serve directly from baking dish.
Serves 6 to 8
