This recipe was given to me many years ago by a friend. Teaming chocolate with butterscotch for a marble cake makes it more flavorful and colorful than the usual chocolate-vanilla combination. This rich family favorite is very moist and keeps well. -Pam Giammattei, Valatie, New York

"This is a quick and easy dessert to make. The cake we loved; we found the icing to be too sweet. I would adapt the frosting using less butterscotch chips, unsweetened chocolate, a little butter and light half and half."
