    (150g butter, chopped) in a large saucepan and start to melt over medium-low heat. When the base of the pan is covered in butter, add 105g (3/4 cup) marshmallows. Heat until butter has melted and marshmallows have softened, then use a wire whisk to mix until combined. Cool slightly.

  • Step 3

    Add the flour (225g (11/2 cups) self-raising flour), then the eggs (3 eggs, lightly whisked) to the pan. Use a spatula to fold until evenly combined. Transfer to the prepared pan. Bake for 23 minutes or until springy to a gentle touch.

  • Step 4

    Remove cake from the oven and sprinkle with remaining marshmallows. Return to the oven for 2 minutes or until the marshmallows have just softened. Set aside to cool completely in the pan.

  • Step 5

    Use the paper to lift the cake from the pan. Cut into squares to serve (see note).

Recipe Notes

The marshmallows will be sticky so use a sharp non-serrated knife (or even kitchen scissors), dipping the blade in icing sugar, to cut the cake.
