Guest post: Marble Bundt Cake from Marileen


I am happy to announce the first guest post today. Marileen from glücks.happen (in German) brought along some delicious marble bundt cake for the coffee invite event. In case you don’t know, I am currently organizing a blog event in which I ask you to make something from scratch and invite somebody for a coffee to share. Check here to read what this event is about.

nvitation_to_a_coffeeMarileen’s recipe sounds so delicious, but let’s give the floor to her:

First of all Happy Birthday to your first blog anniversary, Jenny! I love your blog event! Just like you I love to invite friends for a coffee in my apartment. But not just for coffee with something sweet, also for breakfast or dinner. One of my favorite activities is to just chat with my friends. By the way, my name is Marileen and I have been blogging on HOLZ & HEFE (in German, not available anymore) about crafting, baking, travelling and recently also sustainability, which is a new important topic of mine.


When Jenny asked me whether I wanted to make a cake for her event, I was all in. Nothing beats the classic marble cake for the traditional coffee with cake. Maybe you think: “Oh, that is boring.” I beg to disagree, this marble bundt cake is prepared with real chocolate, not just cocoa powder. The cake doesn’t look as dark as a result, but it contains the extra chocolate flavor!

Marble Bundt Cake

Serves: One 22 cm ∅ bundt form
Cooking Time: 20min preparation+ 50 min of baking time


  • 250 grams of semi-sweet chocolate
  • 250 grams of butter at room temperature
  • 175 grams of regular sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs, size L
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, see here how to make your own
  • 150 milliliters of heavy cream
  • 50 milliliters of Amaretto (alternatively 200 milliliters of heavy cream)
  • 300 grams of cake flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder



Grease and flour the bundt form thoroughly. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.


Cut chocolate in small pieces. Set aside half and melt the other half on low heat while stirring.


Cream butter, sugar and salt for a few minutes until light in color and fluffy.


Add eggs, one at a time and beat in each for at least 30 seconds.


Add the vanilla extract, heavy cream and amaretto.


Once everything is creamed together, add flour and baking powder. Just mix until combined.


Divide dough in halves. Add the melted chocolate to one part and mix until evenly brown. Fold the cut chocolate in the light batter.


First put the light colored batter into the bundt form, then the dark one. Use a fork to marble the cake.


Bake for 50 minutes, inserted toothpick should come out clean.


Let cake cool off in bundt form for ten minutes, then using a spatula, slowly take it out. If it doesn't come out easily, place in freezer for a few minutes.


Either garnish with icing sugar or chocolate ganache.


I’ve invited some friends today for coffee with cake and I am going to prepare everything now. Have a great Sunday and feel free to check glücks.happen (in German)!

Your Marileen

    Hallo Jenny,
    das ist eine nette Idee von Dir, die Leute zu einer gemeinsamen Kaffeetafel aufzurufen. Und prima, dass Du gleich so tollen Beistand von einer so netten Bloggerkollegin wie Marileen erhalten hast. Wir haben am Sonntag eine Familienfeier, da werde ich den Marmorkuchen gleich mitbringen und freue mich schon darauf.
    LG, Birgit
