Best Marble Cake Ever

Marble Cake
No, I'm not exaggerating - this is truly the best marble cake recipe ever. On Sunday when we met with our friends for coffee I was terribly craving for the marble cake next table ;-) It looked so delicious I wanted to steal it. But I did not give in, I didn't order any cake but rather made one on my own as soon as we returned home. The recipe is based on a recipe from the famous, Michelin-starred cook Johanna Maier from Austria. I found it some years ago on the internet (I think on brigitte.de but it's not available any more.) and I've made this Marble Cake several times before. And it always turned out perfect. But as I was mixing the batter I decided to spice it up and to more rum and some milk and to make it chocolat-ier.

Find the recipe in English and in German (yes, I finally managed to translate it!!!) at my new food blog at kitchenklatsch.com. Thank you!

  5. I am German, that's right. But lots of my online or Flickr friends aren't. And to be true being able to communicate with people from all over the world is one of the main reasons why I love blogging. Plus writing in English (or trying to) is a way to keep my English skills from becoming rusty. I think it's fun and absolutely wish I had paid more attention to my Spanish teacher in school (he was a terrible person though) so I would be to write in Spanish, too.

    Is there a reason why I should write in German?

    If anyone has any questions in German or wants me to share this recipe in German your emails or comments are more than welcome.

  7. The pan is a 9 1/2 inch / 24 cm Gugelhpf pan (about 4 inch / 10 cm high). I just checked it. And yes, you can definitely half the recipe. I have used smaller pans (even tiny ones) too. But I am not sure about the baking time for half the recipe...maybe something around 35 to 40 minutes. I'd suggest baking it for 35 minutes and then check with a toothpick if ready. If not add 5 minutes and test again...and so on until the cake is done.
