Zebra-Bundt-Cake-Bakers-Royale-21

As I baked a marble bundt cake today, it made me reminiscence my childhood days where marble cake was something I grew up eating. Infact it was my family’s favorite, the only disagreement being whether to order a choco chip marble cake or a a simple marble bundt cake. But definitely it was something we all loved and gorged on endlessly.

The look of this cake is so appealing that it calls you to have one more piece. Even without chocolate ganche, the cake is flavorful and super moist. The cake looks complicated but it is a variation of the classic chocolate and vanilla cake. This cake is sure to win hearts for both chocolate and vanilla cake lovers. A good practical cake which you can have your tea or pack in your child’s lunchbox or even have it to satisfy your sweet tooth.

When you are confused whether to make a chocolate cake or a vanilla cake, just go for a marble bundt cake!
