Very yummy! Not dry at all. I changed a few things. I lessened the flour to 3 cups, added 1 tsp. vanilla and added 1 more tbsp. baking cocoa. I didn't mix it for 10 minutes, I just watched until it turned lighter coloured. I used a bundt pan, greased and floured it. Baked it for 50 minutes. No problem coming out of the pan. Added a dusting of powdered sugar. Very similar to my mom's but this one wasn't dry :) Absolutely will make again.
The cake from this recipe is dry,not so sweet and I can taste the eggs,(Yuck) perhaps if it had other ingredients like chocolate chips, something sweet, or even a glaze over the top to liven it up some, this recipe might be a bit better. As another reviewer mentioned,I also had a VERY hard time getting it out of my pan.
This recipe is definitely a keeper. A very light an fluffy cake. I added vanilla extract to the white batter and unsweetened cocoa powder to chocolate batter to taste because I wanted more flavor, but the texture of the cake is perfect.
This cake was very easy to make and it was delicious. I wou;d add some orange or lemon oil in order to make the taste of the none chocolate dough more interesting. Thumbs up for this one!
I've made this cake about 6 or 7 times now & it turns out better every time I do it! Perfect for birthday parties for young & those of us slightly older!?!
Very good cake. For the reviewer who said it is very dry, that is how the German cakes (kuchen) bake. My German MIL bakes home made cakes all the time, this is how they come out. Thanks for the recipe.
This recipe is excellent. Just the right amount of moisture. My mother, who used to have authentic German marble cake all the time, says that it reminds her of home.
The taste was OK but nothing spectacular. I followed the recipe exactly but it just did not have the taste I expected. I will not try this one again.
