    I had to double ingredients to make a layer cake, but it seems that the chocolate batter (cocoa & boiling water mixture) was too liquid-y; it turned the "1/3 reserved batter" into a too-liquid cake batter, thus I couldn't use all of it in the marble mixture. Did others run into this issue? Mine is baking in the oven right now (for a daughter's birthday cake) and so I hope it comes out well!

    This recipe is very easy to follow! I used AP Flour and it turned out perfectly fine. Now I have a marble cake in my baking arsenal.

    I've made this cake tonight and exactly followed the recipe. It turned out just great. Best marble cake I've made. The checker board filling might seem hard as they tend to mix but they don't. So just apply as instructed and do not mix to much. One or two swirl will do it. Thanks for the recipe.

    For some reason I thought that this was a pound cake since it was made in a loaf pan! It still tastes good though, although I couldn't get it to swirl as nicely as it was shown in the photo.

    Hi, I've been looking for a great marble sponge cake recipe and seems that I've now found it! However, I've been asked to make it as a four tier wedding cake! Can you please tell me the quantities of ingredients I would need to make a 16" round cake? Many thanks :)
