marble cake

by Katherine

I am making a cake for my boss who is retiring. He prefers to have a marble cake. I want to know if you can tell me how to make one. Do I just need to use half the batter from a white cake and half from a chocolate and bake it? If that is how I do it will the cake separate when it comes out of the pan?

marble cake mix

I always used a white cake mix and then added 1/2 of a chocolate cake mix. Dropped by tablespoons around the pan and then used a knife to swirl it.

Marble Cake Technique

Hi Katherine,

The easiest way to make a marble would be to mix up the yellow cake recipe and divide the batter in half. Add 1 1/2 ounces of melted chocolate and 1/2 cup cocoa powder to one half of the batter and leave the other half plain. Spoon each batter alternately into the cake pan then swirl together, just a little, with a toothpick or skewer and bake as per the recipe.

Good luck!
