Hi, I need to make a marble cake.. I was thinking using yellow cake mix and adding some coco to some of the batter to make the chocolate.. has anyone done this..? I am making a 6" cake and dont want to use 2 boxex of cake mix.. am I being dumb?'
when you buy dh thats what they have you do! Just reserve about 1 cup of the batter and mix in some powdered cocoa and then swirl it in...
No...I think it would work. That's how marble cake mixes are done (or how they were done when I last bought one).
I thought so... thanks so much for answering so quick! This place is great!!
I actually save my extra packets from the marble, cuz when I'm making a 2 or 3 mix cake, I don't open all of them. Then if I need to use a yellow mix, I have the packets
I will usually add a melted chocolate bar to it along with the cocoa to give it a better flavor. Also hot coffee.
I've mixed two separate vanilla and chocolate mixes together to make a marble cake. It was convenient because I needed cupcakes of all three flavors, but it just tasted weird.
