Bloggers always seem to have a story to tell. There's always something to tell, to share and to write about. But today is an exception for me.... I'm not in the mood to tell a story.. blaahhh.. lazy plus the excellent weather makes me wanna just chill with my family...
Marble cake has always been my all time favorite! There are tons of recipes that I have tried and when I saw this recipe going around among food bloggers.. I just got to gv this recipe a try.. This recipe is simple and easy and it produces a rich chocolaty butter cake... just make sure u use good butter and dark chocolate and I am pretty sure ur cake will turn out just fine...
I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 7" round pan and 6x9" pan.. gave mom one of the cakes and will let hb take to work tmrw to be shared...
