Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Easy to make, grandma's German marble cake is a family favorite.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar. Beat in egg yolks. Continue beating for 10 minutes.
  • Gradually stir in flour, alternating with splashes of milk, until all of the flour and milk are mixed in. Stir in baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites. Fold egg whites into batter.
  • Reserve 1/4 of the batter, and pour the rest into a greased, floured tube pan.
  • Mix cocoa into the remaining 1/4 of the batter. Then turn into tube pan, and fold under with a fork to produce a marbled appearance.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
