Marble Cake Recipe from Scratch
Marble cake is one of my favorite cakes ever. Imagine rich, moist and buttery cake with chocolate swirls that every bite is chocolatey, sweet and decadent. It is great with a cup of coffee or tea and I love it whenever I I need a quick sweet bite.
This is the easiest marble cake recipe step by step. You will learn how to make the cake mix, use cocoa powder to make the chocolate batter, plus techniques to create the marble effect in the cake.
This recipe is adapted from my butter cake recipe; it yields the BEST I have ever tasted.
How to Make Marble Cake without Chocolate
While you can certainly use chocolate in the cake, I prefer to use cocoa powder because it’s easier and cocoa powder doesn’t compromise the taste!
This recipe guaranteed to yield a cake that is rich, buttery with deep chocolate flavor.
What Cake Pan to Use for Homemade Marble Cake?
I baked the cake with mini loaf pans because I love small packages. The batter makes three mini loaves.
You can use regular loaf pan to make it and it will yield one, or a standard rectangle cake pan.
