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