A classic marble cake is always a crowd-pleaser. This recipe is easy to follow and results in a moist, delicious cake that everyone will love.
Before you get started, make sure you have all of the ingredients on hand. This will help you avoid any last-minute trips to the store.
Start by making the vanilla batter. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then, add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, hot water, and oil until smooth. Then, add the chocolate mixture to the vanilla batter and stir until just combined.
To create the marbled effect, drop spoonfuls of the chocolate batter on top of the vanilla batter. Then, use a knife to gently swirl the two batters together.
Pour the batter into a greased and floured 9-inch round cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, carefully invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Once the cake is completely cooled, frost it with your favorite frosting. We recommend chocolate frosting or vanilla frosting.
Slice and enjoy your delicious marble cake! This cake is perfect for any occasion, from birthdays to tea parties.
