"I've been making this cake since it first came out in Quick Cooking in 1998. My family love it! It's taste good, it's quick to make, plus it starts with a cake mix. It is the recipe I go to for a quick dessert to take someplace!"

"I was sceptical when I first read the recipe. Putting marshmallows in the bottom of the pan and not mixing the pie filling into the batter just sounded odd. But6 it worked and was truly delicious."
