Choco-Scotch Marble Cake

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

  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup 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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 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.
