Marble Bundt Cake: This pound cake was soooo buttery it practically melted in my mouth! food desserts cake

I have been debating whether I should share this magnificent marble bundt cake with you today, or save it for next week. But I just couldn’t wait! I’ve been working on this recipe for so long, and I decided you would just have to have it before the weekend.

It’s simple, I know. Nothing but a dusting of powdered sugar for adornment. But would you look at that swirl?! There’s something so hypnotic about it… and the taste will completely knock your socks off. The crumb is fine as can be, and so buttery it just about melts in your mouth.

Pound cake is SO good. Especially when it’s warm from the oven! Please promise me you will make this marble bundt cake and eat it while it’s still warm. You won’t be sorry!

This is a big cake and it will feed a crowd, so it’s perfect for your Labor Day celebration. Or any other big celebration, for that matter!

As you can see in the video below, I utilize a highly scientific method of plopping alternating chocolate and vanilla cake batters, swirling, and layering. After tireless hours of experimentation and research, I have found that this method leads to the optimal swirl of chocolate and vanilla. Sometimes you get a bite that’s all rich dark chocolate, sometimes only fragrant vanilla, and sometimes a glorious combination of the two. It really is the best marble bundt cake scenario.

Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and grease and flour a 10-cup bundt pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar together on medium-high speed, until very pale and fluffy (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, stopping to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula after each addition.
  • Add one cup of flour at a time, stirring on low speed until incorporated.
  • Stir in the salt and vanilla.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk the cocoa and water together.
  • Fold about half the cake batter into the cocoa mixture.
  • Drop dollops of chocolate batter into the prepared pan, alternating with vanilla batter.
  • Swirl together with a toothpick or bamboo skewer.
  • Repeat, layering on dollops of batter and swirling, until all the batter has been added.
  • Bake for 70 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part of the cake comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Cool for 30 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate and dust with powdered sugar.
