Marble Cake Recipe

Marble Cake is a wonderfully rich and buttery cake that gives you two cakes in one (a chocolate cake and a white cake). The marbling effect is created by placing white and chocolate cake batters, alternately in a bundt pan, and then running a knife (do not stir) through the two batters. Marble cakes may look complicated, but they actually start with a basic pound cake batter.
