      1/2 cup sugar

      1 egg

      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

      1/4 cup all-purpose flour

      3 tablespoons baking cocoa

      1/4 teaspoon salt

      2 tablespoons chopped pecans

      FROSTING:

      3 tablespoons butter

      1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons 2% milk

      2 teaspoons baking cocoa

      1 cup confectioners’ sugar

      1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

      1/3 cup marshmallow creme

      2 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans

      Coat a 6-in. springform pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust with flour; set aside. In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt; stir into creamed mixture just until blended. Stir in pecans.
      Transfer to prepared pan. Bake at 350? for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
      For frosting, in a small saucepan, combine the butter, milk and cocoa; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; beat in the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla.
      Place springform pan on a wire rack. Immediately spread marshmallow creme over hot cake. Drop 2 tablespoons of frosting over creme; cut through with a knife to swirl. Cool completely.
      Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides of pan. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Sprinkle pecans on top. Yield: 6 servings.
