directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a bundt cake pan.
  • Beat butter and sugar together, then add vanilla, eggs and salt.
  • 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.
  • Fill 2/3 of the batter into the greased cake pan.
  • Mix the remaining batter with cocoa, sugar and 2 or 3 tablespoons milk, until batter again drops heavily and ripping apart from a spoon.
  • 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.
  • 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!
