In keeping with the theme of German baking, here is an old recipe I have for Marmorkuchen.
(Marble cake)



1 cup butter (can use margarine but better with butter)
4 separated eggs
1 & 3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking power
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons lemon or almond flouring
2 tablespoons white sugar again


1. Mix butter, egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, baking powder, milk and flour.

2. Beat egg whites with cocoa,lemon and the two teaspoons of sugar.

*Need to mix in two bowls. Line 1 for bowl 1. Line 2 for bowl 2

When thoroughly mixed, grease a bundt baking dish. Alternatively, pour one layer of white, then one layer of brown and so on until the batter is done.

Bake for 1 hour in an 350 degrees oven. It will be done when a knife comes out dry.

After this delectable cake is finished and cooled down, sprinkle white icing sugar on the top of it for a nice finishing touch. For a festive occasion, it is nice to put a coloured fluted serviette to match your linen table cloth in the center of the cake. It gives a splash of colour.

Delicious with filter coffee for an afternoon coffee party or a festive occasion among friends and family.

Is this cake going to be available to sample at the St John's bake sale? (By the way, you have egg yolks in two places, and no egg whites. Do your hens lay eggs with double yolks, no whites? How do you separate those?) Chuckle chuckle!!

Good Evening Jefferson,

No, unless I get really ambitious as it is expensive to make. However, there will be a great many even more delicious cakes to buy there. Look again at the recipee - it calls for eggs. I don't separate them into egg yolk and egg white. I would have said so, if it were to be done that way.

I may bring that for Tower Christmas party though. I have promised a cake.

Woops, I must apologize to Jefferson. It is I who am wrong and he spotted my mistake.

I have corrected the recipee.

My apologizes and thanks Jefferson for pointing that out.
