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 Amazon.ca 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 )
9 tbsp oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup water
2 1/2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/c cup chocolate syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda
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
- in the bowl of your food processor, mix the oil, sugar, eggs & vanilla together until light in texture. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
- Add the water through the feed tube while the machine is running
- 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
- Pour 2/3 of the batter into the prepared Bundt pan & return bowl to the food processor
- Mix in the chocolate sauce & baking soda to the remaining cake batter. Make sure the batter is mixed throughly
- 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
- Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes or until baked trough completely
- Remove from the oven & let it sit on a cooling rack in the cake pan for about 15-20 minutes.
- 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!
- At this point, you can put chocolate frosting on the cake, leave it plain or sprinkle some icing sugar on it!
- 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.
