Marble Bundt Cake

This is a moist and rich pound cake recipe.  Try to sneak a slice when it’s still warm…it’s heavenly!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp warm water
  • powdered sugar, for garnish

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease and flour a bundt or ring cake pan.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, until fully combined.
  5. Turn the mixer on low and add dry mixture and buttermilk in batches, alternating between the two.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, oil and warm water.
  7. Add half of the batter to the cocoa mixture and stir until fully combined.
  8. Spread alternating spoonfuls of the batters into the cake pan.  Use a thin knife to swirl the batters together.
  9. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in centre of cake comes out clean.
  10. Sprinkle cake with powdered sugar just before serving.
