Marble Cake (taken on February 16, 2014)

Last weekend, I had a craving for my Mom’s marble cake. It’s a family favorite (except for the fact that my Dad won’t eat cake, only apple tarte, ha!) and whenever I feel a little homesick, I bake something that reminds me of my childhood.

I personally prefer a good (homemade!) pound cake over any fancy cake. Here in the US for a lot of people it’s all about the frosting. Well, marble cake doesn’t have any frosting, just a dusting of powdered sugar, and it’s just perfect that way. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and sweet-but-not-too-terribly-sweet.

Perfection in a cake pan.

  1. My German friend makes THE BEST marble cake, it looks just like this and is delicious! You Germans sure know how to bake a good marble cake ;)

  2. Sieht gut aus! Aber mehr als der Kuchen gefällt mir die Fläche darunter! Ist das ein Tisch oder eine Truhe oder…? Und dein Phone-Case gefällt mir auch unglaublich gut! :-)

  3. You’re making my mouth water. Sounds and looks delicious! Also, is that your kitchen table? I’ve become obsessed with distressed / reclaimed wood tables …

  4. I’m not one to comment much, but today I have to because your post expresses my sentiments exactly :) (fellow German expat, which probably explains a lot! ). The funny thing is, I also had a craving for a good, simple marble cake and baked one Saturday night so we could have some for our breakfast and “Kaffe & Kuchen” on Sunday.

  5. YUM! Looks and sounds so good. Gorgeous photo, too :)
