    Mia in Germany's Note:

    This is the classical German marbled cake. There are several recipes for marbled cakes posted here on but none is the authentic one, somewhat similar to a pound cake.

    Serves: 16



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bundt cake pan.
    2. 2
      Beat butter and sugar together, then add vanilla, eggs and salt.
    3. 3
      Combine flour and baking powder and stir into butter-sugar-egg mixture, alternating with the milk. Only add enough milk for the batter to drop heavily and ripping apart from a spoon.
    4. 4
      Fill 2/3 of the batter into the greased cake pan.
    5. 5
      Mix the remaining batter with cocoa, sugar and 2 or 3 tablespoons milk, until batter again drops heavily and ripping apart from a spoon.
    6. 6
      Pour cocoa batter on top of the light one and move a fork spiralling through the two layers, so that you get a marbled pattern.
    7. 7
      Bake for about 75 minutes.

      I really love this recipe. I made my first Marmorkuchen when I was a exchange student in Germany. This is the second time I try this recipe and I am loving it. Thanks!
