How To Make Marble Swirl Pound Cake

Made from cake flour, eggs, and sugar, this fluffy pound cake with swirled sweet vanilla and mildly bitter chocolate layers has an elegant marble effect.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Cool Time: 10 minutes
Total: 1 hour 25 minutes

  1. In a large bowl, with electric mixer at low speed, beat sugar and butter until blended. Increase speed to high, and beat until light and fluffy.

  2. Add flour, milk, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and eggs to the sugar and butter mixture; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Increase speed to high, and beat batter 4 minutes longer.

  3. Remove about 2½ cups batter to a medium bowl. With a wire whisk or fork, beat cocoa into batter in medium bowl until well blended.

  4. Grease a 10-inch tube pan. Alternately spoon vanilla and chocolate layers into prepared pan. With a large spoon, cut and twist through batters to obtain marbled effect.
