I'm making a cake for the Valentine's dinner at church Saturday night and thought marble cake might be nice, and different. I haven't a recipe for marble cake and haven't made one in decades. I can use a scratch recipe and one using mixes, just need a place to start. Thanks!! Carol

Guess I should add that I want to make a layered marble cake NOT a bundt type cake. I've been searching ofr recipes online and all I'm finding is the heavy bundt type cakes. NOT at all what I want. A few years ago my friend's dd had marble cake as part of her bridal cake. It plated very pretty and tasted very good. THAT'S what I'm going for. Help!!

I usually use doctored cake mixes for marbled cakes. Buy chocolate and yellow (or white) cake mixes and doctor them up, then alternate putting the two flavors next to each other in one pan. After the pan is 2/3 full, take a fork and slightly marble the two flavors together... make sure not to over do it. I like to use doctored cake mixes because the two different batters are similar and will bake up the same.

Simple! Just make your favorite yellow cake batter, remove a portion of the yellow and add some cocoa powder to it, and then marble the chocolate mixture back into the rest.

This is what I do too. I use Serious_Cakes yellow cake recipe and take about a cup out add cocoa to it and some chocolate syrup too then. Pour the yellow batter in your pans then put a few good dallops of the chocolate mixture in here and there then swirl the dallops with a knife to get the marbled effect.

I like to use the recipeon Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes Book. Thats what I use to serve to my clients and it works really well. It's delicious! Be sure to use dutch-processed cocoa, or your cake won't come out right. I replace the water for the cocoa with espresso. YUM!
