The best marble cake I have ever had. This is what you can do. A piece of marble cake on a white plate. It’s been a long time since I saw you, and finally I have a marble cake recipe to share with everyone! This recipe has been in the making for many years; in fact, I wanted to publish a marble cake in my first cookbook, but couldn’t complete the recipe in time.
(But there is a marble cake recipe in that book!) Three years later, two cookbooks, and 23 ordinary marble cakes, we are here. To say I am excited is an understatement. It’s like we’re talking about excited tooth fairy, excited Santa Claus, excited snow day, my God, I can lick a bowl of excited brownie batter, bottomless fries and sauce at Chili’s, every time Jude was excited when I walked in, Kevin was excited about chicken wings, uh… you see. Things are about to become amazing. Marble layer cake with milk chocolate frosting on a yellow cake stand. This is the main point of today's recipe: this marble cake is simple and clear, soft and moist, soft and cakey. Infinite butter classic birthday cake state! Better than the box. Coated with milk chocolate frosting. This marble cake is not difficult to make. Dry and bland. From the box, it lacks the chocolate flavor like most marble cakes.
Boring! Let us quickly complete these steps so that you know exactly what you are doing in the kitchen. A large number of photos enter your scrollable future. 2 pictures of yellow cream and cake sugar in a metal bowl with paddle attachments and yellow cake batter in a metal bowl with a stirrer The first thing we do is to prepare a basic yellow cake batter (above Picture, right picture). This marble cake recipe only requires 1 batter. The chocolate bars are made of yellow blocks. So, everything is the same! The yellow cake batter can also be left alone to make a traditional yellow cake. But because I was crazy about chocolate for my recipe recently (sorry?), we added chocolate to the batter and turned it into a marble cake. Just like real chocolate. It will be described in detail later. The basic yellow cake batter is very simple. Let's analyze the ingredients. You need cake flour, not all-purpose flour. The protein content of cake flour is lower than general purpose, which is related to lighter broken cakes. A light, airy cake like a boxed mixture.
All-purpose flour will make your cake heavy and dense, like bread. In a pinch, you can make your own substitute for cake flour. Baking powder refreshes the cake. Although we will use buttermilk as the liquid in the batter, we will use baking powder. Buttermilk (an acid) is usually mixed with baking soda, but the use of buttermilk in this marble cake recipe is not because of its acidity. Instead, it is for taste and moisture. Buttermilk is the secret of super moisturizing texture. Whole milk is a good substitute. Like most traditional cakes, cream and sugar are the basis of the entire marble cake. (Above, left). And, as usual, I used a mixture of granulated sugar and brown sugar in today's recipe. You know I can't live without my beloved brown sugar. humidity!
smell! It would be foolish not to use it on such a huge cake. Egg. everything! Specifically, egg yolk. I have drilled in your head? Egg yolk (fat) imparts moisture, softness, richness and flavor to baked goods. Not to mention its color. Yellow egg yolk = yellow cake. You will need 2 whole eggs and 4 extra yolks. You will have 4 egg whites left, so make yourself a super healthy egg white omelette to balance all the marble cake slices you want to eat. Is it cool or what? Use a spoon to stir the melted chocolate into a yellow cake batter in a glass bowl. After preparing the yellow cake batter, set aside 1 cup. Mix 4 ounces of high-quality pure chocolate. We are talking about real chocolate, not chocolate chips or even cocoa powder. Pure chocolate bars: the kind you find in the pastry aisle, such as Lindt or Ghirardelli. You can also use Trader Joe's More Pound Bar. When testing my recipe, I tried various marble cakes with cocoa powder, but the results could not be compared with marble cakes made of pure chocolate. Pure chocolate makes the chocolate swirl taste like decadent chocolate cake. All you have to do is to melt the chocolate and stir it into 1 cup of yellow batter. Above: pouring. Below: mixed together.
The chocolate batter will be thick. Put the chocolate cake dough into the glass bowl with a spoon. Now let's create the marble-like beauty! It's that easy. Pour the yellow dough base into each cake pan. Put the chocolate batter on top. Put the remaining yellow batter on top. Take a knife and spin it. So: before and after marinating the two batters together, the 2 photos of the yellow and chocolate cake batter in the cake pan does not have to be neat or perfect. The unevenness of the mixed dough makes the cake more charming. It's time to bake. It takes about 22-27 minutes to layer the cake. All ovens are different, so I recommend using an oven thermometer to make sure your oven is at the correct temperature (my oven heats up; the thermometer saves the day!) and test points with a toothpick. Bake a cake. , It's time to mount and freeze. Having said that, I believe you have tasted my legendary milk chocolate frosting by now.
It has appeared many times in recipes and on my blog. I am totally fascinated. It's like the old-fashioned chocolate cream my grandmother used to make. Smooth and creamy, rich and thick. Wrapped in and around the homemade marble cake is simply extraordinary. Put the milk chocolate frosting into a glass container with a spatula. Welcome to my happy place.

This cake took me so long to complete for a reason…it all depends on the precision and proportion of the specific ingredients and the mixing technique. I recommend that you follow the instructions first, and then make any adjustments you see fit next time. If you have any questions, a lot of recipe instructions will be provided for you. Enjoy this classic beauty!
