  • Spoon 2 dollops of batter into pan next to each other, 1 chocolate and 1 vanilla. Repeat twice, alternating layers, and swirl.

  • Bake until a skewer inserted in center of a cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool completely in pans on a wire rack. Run a knife around edges, then turn out cakes.

Cook's Notes

Give It a Swirl
Insert a knife or skewer vertically all the way to the bottom of the pan, then swirl together the alternating vanilla and chocolate layers to create a marbled effect.

Cook's Notes

Store in an airtight container at room temperature, up to 3 days.
