This recipe attracted me because it was so simple; unfortunately I found it needed quite a bit of tweaking. The cake had a nice texture but the flavor was underwhelming and the marbling did not turn out well - the cake looked more layered than marbled. I recommend splitting the batter evenly (rather than 1/4 yellow cake and 3/4 chocolate), then adding a bit more vanilla to the yellow batter and a little more cocoa powder to the chocolate batter. Rather than pouring the yellow batter in the pan first, I would add alternating scoops of yellow and chocolate batter to the pan, to create a nicer marbling effect. I definitely would not repeat this recipe as-is.
