Recipe For a Chocolate Marble Cake

Chocolate marble cake is a delicious and visually appealing dessert that combines the flavors of vanilla and chocolate in a swirled pattern.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a bundt cake pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare dry ingredients: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar: In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs and vanilla: Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Incorporate dry ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.
  6. Divide the batter: Divide the batter in half. In one half, sift in the cocoa powder and add hot water, mixing until well combined. This will be your chocolate batter.
  7. Layer the batter: Spoon alternating dollops of vanilla and chocolate batter into the prepared pan.
  8. Create marble effect: Use a skewer or a knife to swirl the batters together, creating a marble effect. Be careful not to overmix; you want distinct swirls.
  9. Add chocolate chips (optional): Sprinkle chocolate chips over the batter for an extra chocolatey touch.
  10. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  11. Cool and serve: Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, you can dust the cake with powdered sugar or drizzle it with a chocolate glaze if desired.

Enjoy your homemade chocolate marble cake!
