MARBLE CAKE

May 13, 2014

Looking for an easy last minute cake? Fortunately there is not very much that can go wrong with that recipe. Saying that – I totally screwed up last time and ended up with a tiny little cake blob. It was still yummy – just looked a bit weird. 

To get a cake the size I show on the pictures take double the amount in the recipe.
