German Marble Cake Recipe- MarmorKuchen

As a child, Marmorkuchen , made from this German Marble Cake Recipe, was a staple in our home. Chocolate and Vanilla swirled into a bundt (or Gugelhopf) pan. Delicious, but not gooey like many cakes. It was the perfect treat for after school, or with a cup of coffee.

And even now, it  is a great recipe to have in your pocket. Simple, satisfying, delicious, travels well (I’ve even packed the cake into a tupperware, and taken it to the zoo in my stroller…. it survived the journey, and everyone else was jealous that we had cake). The Recipe combines chocolate batter and a vanilla batter in a nice swirl pattern. Everyone’s happy… the chocolate lovers AND the plain vanilla lovers.

(One thing I did notice, American palates may find it a bit dry, and not very sweet. This is not a soft squishy cake with thick frosting. It’s more dense.  I’ve never had a German complain, but they usually eat it with a cup of coffee.
PS. If you take a thermos of coffee to the zoo to have with cake everyone will be wildly jealous of you

  1. Now you did it–you made my mouth water and now I absolutely have to bake this tomorrow even though I have been trying so hard to lose some lbs. It brings back such good memories of Germany and my Mother having baked this
    Thank you so much !

  2. I just baked it and we ate a piece. It came out looking exactly like yours, inside and out. The only thing I will change next time I make it will be to NOT use 3/4 cup of coco powder. It makes the chocolate part taste bitter. 🙁 I’ll just use a little coco powder and Hershey’s Syrup instead. Otherwise, fluffy and moist.

  3. Just made this cake and it came out wonderfully! We had it with coffee as suggested and it was awesome. Thanks for the recipe
