Marble Cake is a real classic here in Germany for coffee time. You will find them at almost every bakery and café over here.
For me, marble cake is timeless! The cake is so simple but has best of both worlds: chocolate and vanilla! Even without any frosting you can never go wrong with this cake.
You can even add berries or other kind of fruits to the batter to pimp it up a bit.
Whenever I get last minute visitors, this is always the cake I choose to bake. It’s classy, uncomplicated but so delicious!
Even a rookie baker could whip this up with no problems. Just be careful not to overbeat the batter for it might turn out dry.
I love to brush my marble bundt cake with a light chocolate glaze just to make it a bit more chocolatey and pretty! 🙂
Easy Moist Marble Cake
300 g Butter (softened)
150 g Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
350 g All-purpose flour
100 g Cornstarch
4 tsp Baking powder
8 Tbsp Milk
100 g Nutella
3 Tbsp Milk
15 Cocoa Powder
100 g Semi-sweet baking chocolate
100 g Milk baking chocolate
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 160 °C/325°F and lightly grease a 10″ non-stick bundt pan.
In a medium bowl beat the softened butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time and beat for about 20 seconds after each addition.
In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder and cornstarch.
Mix in the flour mixture and milk in alternately. Don’t overmix or your cake will turn out to be dry!
Pour half of the mixture into the greased bundt pan.
Now add the Nutella, cocoa powder and milk into the remaining batter and mix until well combined Spread the cocoa batter over the light batter.
Using a knife, swirl the cocoa batter into the white batter to make a marble effect.
Bake in preheated oven for 50 – 55 minutes or until an inserted wooden pick comes out clean.
