This marble cake is adapted from my butter cake recipe, and yields the BEST marble cake I have ever tasted (in my opinion). If there is one marble cake recipe that you wish to try, this is it and is definitely a keeper. It’s super moist, rich, buttery, and loaded with deep chocolate flavor. I just can’t stop my oooh and ahhh for the delicious great taste. Don’t believe it, just look at the pictures…I just had them and I wanted to grab a piece from my screen practically.
I baked my marble cake with mini loaf pans because I love my cake smaller pieces. The batter makes three (mini) loaves. You can use regular loaf pan to make it, or the standard cake pan. It’s totally up to you.
If you love rich, buttery and sweet cakes that fill your house with the lingering aroma, this marble cake recipe is a sure-fire keeper. Try it out, you will thank me!
