Oma's Marmorkuchen "Anything Goes CV"

Harris has been studying European history this fall. The children were each assigned a country. Harris was so excited to show off Germany. The final project was called market day where the children had to pick something to make and then sell it. The children earned play Euro's to use for their purchases. Harris choose to make his Oma's Marmorkuchen. Together we made three of them. They were a huge hit.


Marmorkuchen: 2 sticks of butter softened, 7 oz of sugar (200g), 4 eggs- add eggs one at a time, a splash of milk about 3 Tablespoons, 2 packets of vanilla sugar, rum or vanilla essence (oil) you can substitute this for a teaspoon of either flavor extract. Then sift the flour and baking powder by using 13 oz of flour (375g) and 4 teaspoons of baking powder. Add to wet mixture gradually. Transfer 2/3 of the mixture into a greased and floured bundt pan. Then add 4 teaspoons of cocoa powder and 4 teaspoons of sugar with another 2-3 Tablespoons of milk. Then spoon over the top and with a fork swirl the mixture together creating a marbling effect.
Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour until done in the center. Let cool and dust with powder sugar.
I am grateful for family recipes handed down from one generation to another.
