The recipe is simple and easy to follow, and my son and I have been looking for a "marble" cake for a long time, so we were excited to see this one! Putting it together was easy and fun. Baking took MUCH longer than 30-35 minutes, though; at least in our oven, it took about an hour. DH and DS loved it; DH says that the texture reminded him more of coffee cake than regular cake, so he sprinkled some cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg on it and pronounced it perfect. I have to agree about the texture: so much sugar makes the final product sort of stiff and crunchy rather than the soft and springy cake-like texture I expected. Even though I didn't care for it a great deal, the guys liked it so much that we will surely make it again! Thanks, Raichka, for posting this!
This is a great idea for a recipe. My kids loved being able to help make it and it's a great way for them to feel helpful in the kitchen as well. We made this for my son's birthday cake and it was a huge success! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
