This beutiful cake is really delicious. As the previous reviewer noticed, it could be more moist. This cake should be prepare in a rectangular cake mold! I reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes!
Next time I suggest to add some milk (perhaps 1/3 cup) to the dough.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat eggs until frothy, and gently add to butter and sugar.
  3. Add in flour, baking powder and lemon juice.
  4. Pour 2/3 of the batter into a greased and floured cake pan (I'm assuming a 9 inch spring form or 13x9 pan would work.)
  5. Melt the chocolate, and mix into the remaining batter. (You may need a tablespoon of cream to thin the chocolate as you melt it.) Pour over the batter in the pan, and make a marbled pattern using a fork.
  6. Bake for 60 minutes at 350°F.
