This is a great cake and I made it for many of years now. It is my families favorite cake.
This cake was a disaster for me....and i bake every week. 2/3 cup choc syrup in two cups of batter??? I followed recipe to a t and I ended up with a spongy chocolate cake..that cake was all lite chocolate...what a waste and disappointment for a marble cake. I have made others and loved them...sorry
This was delcious!! It was also quite simple for the beauitful presentation!! I baked mine in a cross shaped pan instead of a fluted pan and the cooking time was the same! Thanks for this awsome recipe Charlotte J!!!
