Special Marble Fudge Cake

"Marble cake was one of the first cakes that I ever learned how to make, this is an adult version of the easy cake I made in brownies. I don't remember where I got this recipe from, it was on a hand written card in one of my cookbooks. I have been making this cake for at least 5 years. This cake gets better after it has sat for a day or two, so make in advance of occasion for best results. Store in an airtight container."

I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
