Marble Cake made in a bundt is one of those dessert options which looks awesome and tastes amazing!
Day before yesterday, I baked my first bundt cake. There is something ceremonious about them, isn’t it? I baked a simple marble cake. I personally thought the marble didn’t come out very well despite the fact that I have made the marble cake with this recipe like umpteen number of times. But the softness and the texture of the cake was brilliant. I will have to master the art of getting the marble right in the Bundt. I did get it right the time I had made the cheesecake brownie marble!
In the meantime, did I tell you about the story of me getting this Bundt tin? Well, so here we go!
So, I have been wanting to get a Bundt tin for a long time. But when I would go to a shop and ask for it, half of the people would look at me with a face which would be a mix of shock, ignorance and disgust, Sigh, some would be polite to ask what it is and then I would take up the task to explain them how does it look. They would just give me a what-are-you-talking-about look! And the few, mind it, really very few who would know what it is, just wont have it. But despite this, I would insist that they take down my name and number and call me back when they get it.
Imagine my state when last week I got a call from a store saying that they have got it. I couldn’t believe my luck, really couldn’t!! And without wasting any time, I rushed to the shop lest someone else bought it! That is how I ended up with this Bundt tin and made this marble cake in it!
Marble in a Bundt
- 300 gms flour
- 3 tsps baking powder
- 300 gms sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tsps vanilla essence
- 200 ml fresh cream
- 6 eggs
- 4 tbsps cocoa powder
- 2 tbsps butter for glazing the cake
- 2 tbsps sugar powdered for dusting the cake
- Divide the flour in two equal parts. To one part add 1.5 tsp baking powder and sift them together thrice and keep aside.
- to the other part of the flour, add the cocoa powder, baking powder and sift thrice again. You can also add coffee to it. I usually skip adding coffee because Ojas loves to have cakes.
- Beat the eggs and sugar till fluffy and then slowly add the cream to the mixture and beat some more.
- Divide the above mixture into two.
- And add one part of the above mixture to the above created and sieved flour mixtures. Add vanilla essence to the one which doesn't have the cooca powder.
- Mix both well to have a smooth batter. So, now you have two batters for the marble to be created.
- Pour both the batters alternatively to achieve the marble effect.
- Bake at 200 deg C for about 35 mins or till the knife comes out clean.
- When the cake is hot, brush it with butter and sprinkle the powdered sugar on it.
That looks yummy!

ah…i love marble cakes! i am also fascinated with bundt tins :)..as for the icing i’ll mail you the recipes of some of my tried and tested ones.
I’l mail you a couple of tried and tested ones 🙂
And tell me, is a bundt just referring to a specific cake-tin or is there something difefrent in the cake recipe as well, because I didn’t see anything different in the ingredients or how you made it as well
Come on quickly go and get Nita Mehta’s Cakes and bakes. It has a recipe on Chocolate temptation. It is awesome. Yes with a topping too. I have made it a few times and everytime, it has not survived beyond the hour. Just vanishes. Incase you are not able to get it, let me know here. Mail me if you can and I will mail u the recipe.
😀 about your adventures on getting the bundt tin. It might have helped to ask for a ring mould!!! 😀 Ha ha!!! Or is not the same thing???
R u based in bangalore??
Congratulations on finally getting the cake tin of your choice 🙂
I love Marble cakes 🙂
Baking a cake at home for a birthday party sounds awesome. Good luck with that 😀
It’s my first visit to your blog. Am having a good time reading your wonderful posts.
Keep up the good work.
Hope to see you around 🙂
Yummy… I am hoping to get a oven and bake post wedding 🙂
Any suggestions on a good oven?
Looks delicious. While on the topic – can any one help and point me to a bread machine? Mine is so old that it will expire any moment. Desperately need a new one
I aint sending any recipe !!! I just hope to drop in Bangalore soon to have you cooking something !! Geez Monu how many recipes !!! your a total foodie like me !!!!
Yummy! I made marble cake too a couple of days back for a friend, but not in a bundt pan.. I have never made it in a bundt pan.
Have been planning to make chiffon cakes in the bundt pan – but have never gotten around to doing it..
As for icing – I am not too good at it – my icing is very amatuerish.. I pick up most of my recipes from all recipes. Will check there to see if there are any easy and fool proof recipes..
Don’t like Cocoa flavor, don’t like chocolates 🙂
Hey !!! Thats a damn gud cake !!!! Yummy !!!!
Looks sinful… *sigh* I wanna eattt now. 🙁
I should just hop over to your place to taste that yummy cake!! 🙂 🙂
For icing, I’ve heard that it comes out really well when you beat the egg whites and make sure there are no bubbles… not too sure about this bit of gyaan though!! 😛 😛
Do let me know if I was even remotely right!! 😉
Life Begins says
Am glad you could finally get the tin.
Can’t wait to taste a piece of it sometime
The cake looks delicious.
good lookin’ cake! im still to find a bundt pan here…. 🙁 you know i tried the 50%atta cake sometime back… i think i messed it up..it tasted ok types… not what i was expecting it to taste like tho..
hey SMM, to the best of my knowledge a bundt pan is just that- a pan. the batter you put in is the same as any cake… it just gives the cake a characteristic shape..
that was jamals 🙂

cake looks lovely Mon. I’m sure it taste great too. Can’t wait to get a taste of your cooking :). I have a bundt cake somewhere in my food blog too which I made for FAB’s bday about two years ago. I love the shape. Why don’t you try frosting on the cake instead of icing. I personally like it better. Will email you a vanilla frosting recipe. Check that out
vishesh unni raghunathan says
ha long time isn’t it 😛 The cake looks good 😀
The cake looks fantastic! I’ve never made a bundt cake, need to try some time.
Have you tries pouring a chocolate glaze over it instead of frosting? I use this glaze over any cake and it tastes yumm.
4 ounces (120 grams) semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup (120 ml) heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon unsalted butter
Place the chopped chocolate in a small heatproof bowl. Bring the cream and butter just to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Immediately pour the boiling cream over the chocolate and allow to stand for a 3-5 minutes. Gently stir until smooth. Set aside for a few minutes until it has thickened to pouring consistency.
come come A i cant wait to meet u 🙂
send me that rec pretty pls
ya really long thanks
yeah i know that one used it for the tempation one i made but i wanted to make a car/train cake for ojas bday so wanted a icing in which i can put some colors
