Hi, it's Ellen here! I have a great marble cake recipe. It is the cake recipe I love to bake and one that will energize you and your kids. This energy will come in handy for an afternoon of play.

Here we go!


  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup neutral flavored oil

  • 4 eggs

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all purpose flour

  • 3 tsp baking powder

  • 1 cup water

  • 2 tbsp dutch process cocoa powder

How to make: Grease a 9×13 inch pan and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla (you can do this by hand or with a mixer).

In a second bowl, combine the flour and the baking powder. Slowly add the flour mixture and water to the wet ingredients, alternating between them until incorporated.

Pour two-thirds of the cake batter into the pan. Add cocoa powder to the remaining batter in your mixing bowl. Add dollops of the chocolate mixture to the vanilla batter in the pan and use a knife to swirl it to create a marbleized effect.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. After baking, let cool and add chocolate glaze or icing to your liking.

There you go – a wonderful cake recipe that all ages will love and will keep them happy! I'd love to know what your favourite cake is in the comments below - or stay tuned here or on our Facebook page for more!
