Amazing Marbled Coffee Cake


It’s an Austrian yummy marble coffee cake in a bundt pan. It is amazingly delicious!


  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 3 oz semisweet chocolate roughly chopped
  • Splash of imitation rum extract (optional; original recipe called for 2 TBSP dark Rum)
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • ½ cup icing sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 5 eggs (separated)
  • 1 cup sugar

    Putting it All Together:

    Preheat oven to 325 deg
    Butter and flour bundt pan
    Set medium bowl over simmering water and melt chocolate. Stir in optional rum extract and set aside to cool slightly
    Sift together flour and cornstarch and set aside
    Beat butter, icing sugar, and vanilla until pale and fluffy.
    Add egg yolks one at a time beating after each addition
    Add flour mixture to butter mixture in 3 additions, beating after each addition
    Set aside
    In a large bowl beat the egg whites on high until frothy.
    Sprinkle in sugar and beat until stiff and glossy peaks form
    Whisk 1/3 of egg whites into cake batter to lighten it.
    Use a rubber spatula to fold in the remaining egg whites to make an airy batter
    Fold 1/3 of the cake batter into the chocolate mixture to make the chocolate flavored batter
    Put ½ the vanilla batter in the pan, then all the chocolate batter and then the remaining vanilla batter.
    Use a knife to swirl the batter to marble it
    Bake until toothpick comes out clean (about 50-55 minutes)
    Let cool, turn upside down on a place and dust with icing sugar
