About this recipe: A very simple but gorgeously delicious marble cake. This is a good old fashioned recipe that doesn't need any tweaking!
You can make this in two (2 lb) loaf tins instead of the tube tin, if desired. Simply adjust baking time as needed.
Very yummy! Not dry at all. I changed a few things. I lessened the flour to 3 cups, added 1 tsp. vanilla and added 1 more tbsp. baking cocoa. I didn't mix it for 10 minutes, I just watched until it turned lighter coloured. I used a bundt pan, greased and floured it. Baked it for 50 minutes. No problem coming out of the pan. Added a dusting of powdered sugar. Very similar to my mom's but this one wasn't dry Absolutely will make again. - 17 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The cake from this recipe is dry,not so sweet and I can taste the eggs,(Yuck) perhaps if it had other ingredients like chocolate chips, something sweet, or even a glaze over the top to liven it up some, this recipe might be a bit better. As another reviewer mentioned,I also had a VERY hard time getting it out of my pan. - 24 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is definitely a keeper. A very light an fluffy cake. I added vanilla extract to the white batter and unsweetened cocoa powder to chocolate batter to taste because I wanted more flavor, but the texture of the cake is perfect. - 21 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
