How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a bowl until combined.
  • Stir together buttermilk and vanilla in a small bowl.
  • Beat together butter and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a standing mixer or 5 minutes with a handheld, then add egg, beating until combined well.
  • Reduce speed to low and alternately mix in flour mixture and buttermilk in batches, beginning and ending with flour, scraping down side of bowl occasionally, and mixing until smooth.
  • Spoon 1/4-cup mounds of batter about 2 inches apart onto 2 buttered large baking sheets.
  • Bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until tops are puffed and cakes spring back when touched, 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Transfer with a metal spatula to a rack to cool completely.
  • For filling: Beat together butter, confectioners sugar, marshmallow, and vanilla in a bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  • To assemble: Spread a rounded tablespoon filling on flat sides of half of cakes and top with remaining cakes.
