Easy and Delicious Marble Cake

Time to bring out the old recipes.

I thought that I heard recently on the radio that the year 2022 would bring back many of the “oldie” types of recipes. It spoke specifically of round cakes which was the norm years ago, and staying away from individual serving types of offerings. When I researched this type of information I could find it nowhere, which I hope does not mean that I was dreaming while driving.

Nevertheless I decided to bring out some of my old successful recipes and share them with you.

Sadly, when looking at examples of some of my really “ancient” favorites I noticed that their ingredients are full of “Crisco,” margarine and other things which we in today’s day and age are diligently working to stay away from. Fortunately we have all become sophisticated enough to use substitutes for the previously “unhealthy choices” of the past.

The Best Marble Cake


  • ¾ oil
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ cup of orange juice or if you prefer milk substitute
  • 2 squares of dark chocolate
  • 1 Tsp. vanilla
  • PAM spray

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Mix or beat together oil and sugar with 4 eggs.

3. Combine flour and baking powder and slowly add to egg mixture while alternately adding liquid.

4. Once all is combined, pour ¾ of mixture into a round bundt cake pan that has been coated with PAM. (I use PAM Baking spray, which has flour in it to coat the pan.)

5. Add melted chocolate to remaining batter and once it is mixed together add it to the pan with the first batter using a knife to make swirls inside the batter in order to give it a marbleized look. For those who prefer not to melt chocolate, I have combined chocolate syrup into the batter in its stead.

6. Bake the cake for 45 minutes and check to make sure it is thoroughly baked.

7. Let cool before removing it from the pan.
