My Beautiful Girlfriend’s Marble Cake
1 C (+) sour cream (OR yogurt)
2 C flour
2/3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 C butter/margarine (melted slightly)
1 C (+) sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/3 tsp vanilla extract
1/5 C (-) cocoa powder
1/3 C chocolate chips
First bowl: sour cream + baking soda
Second bowl: flour + baking powder
Third bowl: butter + sugar + eggs + vanilla extract
Add ingredients from bowls #1 and #2 to the third bowl by alternating between the two. Be sure to end with the flour.
In a fourth bowl, sift the cocoa powder in water (3-5 tbsp). Add 40% of the white mixture to the cocoa mixture and add the chocolate chips.
Grease the baking dish with canola oil and add the remaining white mixture. Then add the cocoa mixture. Carefully mix the two to create a “marble” effect.
Bake at 350 F for approx. 1 hour.
