This is a German recipe for a simple but delicious and moist marbled cake. The chocolate and almond flavours are fabulous, and it looks especially pretty when cut, as you get the full marbled effect.
This is a very good recipe. For the lady that thought the cake was to dry and needed frosting.....Germans do not use frostings. I am German and when i moved here i lost my recipe and it was to late to call my mom so i looked this webpage up and tryed the recipe,....and i have to say it was very very good....it now is in my owne recipe book and i make it at least once a week.All my friends love it and they like that it is easy and is not so sweet as they are used to with american cakes. - 09 Apr 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I'm American but have been living in Germany for 12 years. Actually, German marble cake tends to be drier than the American version. But since I prefer my cakes moister, I just add a package of instant vanilla pudding to the flour! It works wonders. - 17 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This cake is absolutely delicious! It has the perfect texture and rises beautifully. I substitute Grand Marnier (orange liquer) for the rum, and it tastes exquisite. - 20 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
