Fudge Marble Chocolate Chip Cake with Triple Chocolate Icing

Sunday, November 15, 2009
The end result to make this delicious cake is worth the trouble. A rich cake that will satisfy both the yellow and chocolate cake lovers of the world. The thick rich chocolate frosting with chocolate chips is truly perfect to finish it off...

Line a plate with chocolate syrup for a beautiful presentation for guests.

The cake will bake perfectly even in a spring form pan and come out easilly.

Start out spooning the white batter into the pan, adding chocolate, sprinkle with chips repeat, let it settle in do not stir or swirl, it will marblize all by itself.

Layering each color of batter, then chips only on the chocolate, till the batter is all finished...


3/4 cup butter, softened

2 eggs

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. of almond extract

1 1/4 cups milk, half and half sour milk or buttermilk

1 cup of mini chocolate chip

1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix the butter-sugar together until light. Add flour, eggs, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, and milk. Beat till smooth, around three minutes, split batter into two bowls.

Add the unsweetened cocoa powder to one bowl mix well.

Grease a springform pan, or you can use a bundt pan, or two 8 inch pans using the same method. Start with a small amount of vanilla cake batter on the bottom, add a dollop of chocolate batter in the center, sprinkle just the chocolate with mini chocolate chips. Continue layering until all the batter is gone. Do not stir. Bake at 350 for around 40 minutes till done, test with a toothpick if it comes out clean in the center.

Cool completely. Frost with Triple Chocolate Frosting.

2/3 cup butter -- softened

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 tablespoonsheavy cream

1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips

14 cup of chocolate curls for garnish

Beat butter and sugar together alternating with cream. Add vanilla. Stir in chips. Frost cooled cake, garnish with curls.

Try making cupcakes as an alternative and altering chocolate and vanilla batters, swirl with a knife and bake!

  26. My partner and I made this cake yesterday with a 7 year old girl who loves the TV show, The Cake Boss. We measured out most of the ingredients ahead of time and had fun making it. Came out great and she made wonderful decorations with pre-made fondant. We used a really thin layer of frosting because it was so buttery. We could have cut the frosting recipe in half.

  27. Thanks Maddy for trying out the cake recipe, from the description it sounds like it came out gorgeous and I would love to see pictures. If you are on Facebook, go to Whats Cookin Italian Style Cuisine, you can post them on that site would love to see them! Great suggestion on the frosting as well, it makes alot your right! thanks again Claudia :)
