Nannie's Marble Cake

"My granmother was German and made this cake and I have very fond memories of eating this with her at the dining room table talking away the troubles of a young girls day. LOL Lots of butter and eggs. Not a low cal low carb cake but its soooo good. I had to sit and watch her make this stopping her to trya and measure this recipe out. This makes 1 bundt cake or 6 muffins."

    I followed the recipe exactly. Read it several times because the batter turned out so thick I couldn't pour it. It turned out like a brick of sugar. Not real sure what happened.

    used yogurt instead of sour cream, and whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose flour.<br/>everybody loved it, adviced that it could be better with 2 cups of sugar... thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Followed exactly, I was nervous when it seemed more like a cookie dough, then the egg whites loosened it up TG. Made for my daughters birthday. She was thrilled. Thanks for the great recipe.

    Family traditions often make the best recipes and this is a great cake! It has a great aroma, taste and crumb and was very pretty when sliced. I made it and gave it to a friend who had a recent surgery and when I stopped by the next day she and her son had devoured half of it in one evening! (I think the culprit was her bottomless-pit-son). I used a stoneware bundt pan from Pampered Chef so it required additional baking time. I will make this again using a traditional metal bundt because it smelled so good that my family was disappointed that I had given it away. Thanks and all the best to you Karen (kzbhansen)!
