An easy and good way to do a marble cake is to take your favorite box mix yellow cake and make it up per the instructions, or doctor it however you would normally (sour cream, extra egg, pudding, whatever).

Then take about a cup of batter out of it and add cocoa, mixing well. Just a tablespoon at a time. Taste it until it tastes chocolate-y, then stop.

Pour the yellow cake batter into the pan(s), then drop big spoonfuls of the chocolate batter onto it until it's all gone. Swirl through the pan(s) w/ a spoon or knife to get the "marble" effect, then bake as usual.

I get so many requests for this one, and it is so easy! Could be done w/ other flavors too - white/strawberry, chocolate/vanilla, and so on.

Good luck!

When I do my marble cakes for kids parties I separate the plain cake batter into separate bowls and add color and/or flavor to that. I use a couple of soup ladles and just blob it into the cake tin alternating each time. When all batter is in the tin I run a skewer through in a figure 8 pattern.
