Prep Time20 minutes
Cook Time55 minutes
Total Time1 hour


  • 1 cup butter softened, unsalted
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs at room temp
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup sour cream room temp
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa (for chocolate batter)
  • ½ cup mini chocolate chips


  • In small bowl mix flour, baking powder, and salt together. Set aside.
  • In mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in eggs, on at a time.
  • Add vanilla and sour cream, gently beat just until combined.
  • Beat in a small amount of the flour mixture followed by a small amount of milk. Repeat until all the flour and milk is added.
  • Just beat until mixed.

To create the separate batters

  • Divide the batter in half.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa to one half of the batter. Stir until incorporated.
  • Add ½ cup mini chocolate chips to the other half of the batter (plain). Stir until incorporated.

How to Marble:

  • In a greased bundt pan drop batter by the spoonful, alternating chocolate and vanilla flavors. Use only ½ the batter for the first layer. (this batter is thick, don't worry about that...it will work out in the oven!)
  • Drop spoonfuls again but this time alternate the flavors. So, chocolate is now on top of a spoonful of vanilla, and vanilla is on top of a chocolate. 
  • Drag a butter knife through the cake going across the width of the cake, and back again. Do not be tempted to "over swirl" or you'll get a muddy looking cake. Wipe the knife off when you get to the end.
  • Now, swirl the cake down the length of the pan, again do not over-do it.
  • BAKE the cake in a 350 degree oven for about 50-60 minutes (check at 50 minutes) or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
