Glick Family Fav Marble Cake & Chocolate Frosting

This was my kids favorite Marble Cake when they were younger and lived at home! I used to make it often. In fact when I would ask ‘what kind of cake should I make?’ more northerly then not this is the cake they asked for

The recipe if from my ‘go-to’ cookbook

Pleasures of Your Food Processor by Norene Gilletz.

This book is out of print now but some of her other cookbooks are stilll available to purchase.

A very quick cake to get into the oven. Mixed in the food processor but if you do not have a food processor you can make this using a mixer as well. You need some chocolate syrup to mix into some of the batter, the Hersheys chocolate syrup is good and also the U-Bet Chocolate Sauce which I used today. It is parve and I made myself a NY Egg Cream to drink while I was making the cake!

Here is a link on for that syrup ( if you buy this through this link I may get a small commission )

I have included a recipe for chocolate frosting after the cake recipe

The recipe is below the video

Here is the recipe. (I only made one change from the original recipe, using oil instead of butter )

Cake Recipe


9 tbsp oil

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup water

2 1/2 cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup chocolate syrup

1/4 tsp baking soda

Chocolate Frosting

1/2 icing sugar, sifted

3 tbsp cocoa, sifted

2 tsp vanilla

4-5 tbsp water


Preheat oven to 325f

Grease a bundt cake pan

  1. in the bowl of your food processor, mix the oil, sugar, eggs & vanilla together until light in texture. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
  2. Add the water through the feed tube while the machine is running
  3. Add the the flour, baking powder & salt, process with a few pulses just until; blended. Scrape down sides of the bowl & mix again a couple times
  4. Pour 2/3 of the batter into the prepared Bundt pan & return bowl to the food processor
  5. Mix in the chocolate sauce & baking soda to the remaining cake batter. Make sure the batter is mixed throughly
  6. The chocolate batter goes into the cake pan onto of the white batter. Use a knife to swirl the two batters together creating a marbles effect
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes or until baked trough completely
  8. Remove from the oven & let it sit on a cooling rack in the cake pan for about 15-20 minutes.
  9. When cooled enough turn the cake out onto the cooling rack & let cool completely. I took it out of the pan while it was still warm & the cake broke!
  10. At this point, you can put chocolate frosting on the cake, leave it plain or sprinkle some icing sugar on it!
  11. If you are going to put some chocolate frosting on the cake, mix the ingredients until smooth adding the water. Mix until you get the consistency you want, if you want your frosting thiner, add more water but gradually so you do not make it too runny.

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
