Choco-Scotch Marble Cake Recipe

Choco-Scotch Marble Cake Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • FROSTING:
  • 1-1/2 cups butterscotch chips, melted
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream and oil; beat on low speed for 30 second. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Divide batter in half; stir butterscotch chips into half and chocolate into the other half.
  • 2. Spoon half of the butterscotch batter in a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan; top with half of the chocolate batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 4. For frosting, in a small bowl, combine butterscotch chips and chocolate. Beat in enough cream until the frosting is smooth and reaches desired spreading consistency. Spread over top of cake. Sprinkle with pecans. Yield: 12 servings.
