  • 2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 7 eggs, separated
  • 3/4 cup cold water

Marble cake directions
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients; add oil, 7 egg yolks, cold water, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. In another bowl, beat the 7 egg whites until stiff peaks form. Pour egg yolk mixture over the entire surface of egg whites, gently folding in to blend. Remove 1/3 of the batter to another bowl. Blend boiling water, sugar and chocolate; fold into the smaller portion of batter. Spoon half of the light batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan; top with half of the chocolate batter. Repeat layers. With a butter knife or narrow spatula, swirl marble cake batters gently to marbleize. Bake at 325° for 65 minutes. Invert and cool. Frost marble cake with chocolate butter frosting or other frosting.

didn't have great success, Member jstumpff

Perhaps it was the cake flour, but this was far more spongy than I expected. I didn't appreciate that aspect of the texture. I also baked the cake for 65 mins., but the chocolate (which sank to the bottom and didn't really swirl) was not completely finished. I didn't know this until a few hours later when I cut into it. I don't think it was worth the effort or the use of SEVEN eggs.
