I should be working, but it's too hot, so I'll take my mind off the heat by posting about this marbled cake.
I was out of town for several days, so my first opportunity to bake it was yesterday afternoon. I had fretted over which flavor to make. It all depended on who was going to consume it.
In the end, social plans evaporated and it was just me and my daughter, and she unequivocally demanded pure chocolate. Easy then.
The cake baked for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. It was a good solid cake, although a bit on the dry side. I have another recipe for a similar cake, pound-type, can be marbled, or not, and it has always turned out perfectly. I may just have to make it again to compare. One thing that I love about marbled cakes is the design -- it's such a surprise package finding out what the marbling actually looks like.
To meet this week's hostess and to find the recipe, head over to Carol of The Bake More.
Then visit the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to drool over all the flavor variations.
