Marble Bundt Cake
This year Children’s Day marked the 125th birth anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru (Chacha Nehru). Though belated here’s wishing all our children a very Happy Children’s Day! 🙂 I treated my son, Nehal and his friends to his favorite, Marble Bundt Cake, on this occasion . A simple, no frills, easy recipe for kids with vanilla and chocolate as the primary flavors.
Those of you who are absolutely new to the nuances of baking might ask what is a marble bundt cake? Its nothing but vanilla cake batter that is swirled with dark chocolate cake batter in a bundt pan and baked to perfection. Learn more about bundt pans. I followed award winning chef Sarabeth’s marble bundt cake recipe which is a keeper. An unbeatable flavor with a tender texture, nice crust and tastes better as it ages. An addictive cake that will have your friends swoon and ask you to bring it for every get-together you attend for the rest of your life. And its no exaggeration!
Marbling the batter is easy peasy. Just spoon the vanilla batter and chocolate batter in a random manner and swirl a chopstick through the batter to create a marble effect. If you do not like to serve a plain cake, sprinkle some powdered sugar or pour a thin chocolate glaze or ganache all over and you are good to go. Honestly, this marble bundt cake needs no adornment. Just slice through and serve a piece of the marbled beauty with a cup of coffee for the adults and a glass of milk for the kids. You can halve the recipe and make a loaf cake. And cake baking enthusiasts, if you haven’t yet invested in a bundt pan then I strongly recommend you buy one.
