Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl beat together the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla with an electric mixer until very smooth and creamy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. while you continue the beating add the milk a little at a time.
  3. beat for another minute or so.
  4. in another bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder.
  5. add this to the milk mixture-- in 3 or 4 portions-- and beat just until everything is combined.
  6. now, grease a large (12-cup) bundt pan and pour about 2/3 of the batter into the pan.
  7. add the chocolate syrup and the baking soda into the remaining batter, and beat with the mixer just until blended.
  8. spoon the chocolate batter into the pan over the white batter.
  9. using a spatula or knife, gently swirl the two batters together- don't blend them, you just want a marbled effect.
  10. bake at 325°f for 60 to 75 minutes, until a toothpick poked into the thickest part of the cake comes out clean.
  11. allow the cake to cool for about half an hour before attempting to remove it from the pan.
  12. finish cooling on a rack, then sprinkle heavily with icing sugar before serving.

This cake turned out wonderful. I did make some adjustments here and there: didn't have 3 eggs, only 2 extra-large; I added 2 T. sour cream. I added salt (1/2 tsp.) And I just mixed it all in a big bowl - not beating "just until combined" as #5 directed, but beating at high for a good 2 minutes. I baked it at 350 for about 40 minutes. The texture is moist and velvety. I covered it with a chocolate glaze. A winner.

Perfect cake. Came out lovely even though i did everything by hand with a whisk. Used bittersweet chocolate melted with a teaspoon of coffee instead of chocolate syrup. Hubby was very pleased. Thank you for the recipe!

So good. I did use a sugar sub for the sugar. This cake is very moist. I like the idea of baking it in a bundt pan. Turned out great. My family enjoyed this very much. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
