    Engineer in the Kitchen's Note:

    I found the recipe of the cake some time ago on Duncan Hines. While the icing comes from one of the books of BHG. It is the best marble cake I ever had. Made on several occasions for company, and they couldn't stop eating it.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375.
    2. 2
      Spray Bundt cake with non-stick.
    3. 3
      Microwave chocolate with 20-30 sec intervals. Stir and repeat until most of the chocolate is melt but not all (usually takes 1 minute). I usually do not let it melt completely, which creates a nice effect in the cake.
    4. 4
      Combine cake mix, eggs, vanilla extract, sour cream, vegetable oil, sugar and water. Beat on high for around 3 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir third of the batter into the melted chocolate, mix well.
    6. 6
      Spread half of the vanilla batter in the pan, then the chocolate batter and then the rest of the vanilla batter. Swirl the batters with a butter knife to create the marble effect.
    7. 7
      Bake for 35-40 minutes, cool for 20 minutes in pan, remove from pan and cool completely.
    8. 8
      For the icing: melt the chocolate and butter (you can do this in the microwave as well, but be careful).
    9. 9
      Cool the mix for 5-10 minutes, add sour cream and then the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.
    10. 10
      Spread the icing on the cake when it has cooled completely.

      This was really good. Everyone who tried it loved the flavor. I didn't use the frosting recipe, so I can't say how that is. The only thing I had trouble with was once I put the melted choc. mixture in the other cake batter, it was hard to swirl because the choc. was set. I think you would have this problem with any melted choc., and the taste is worth the extra trouble instead of using cocoa powder.
