Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup milk



Heat oven to 350° F.

Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the cocoa, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1/4 cup water.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium-high, beat the butter with the remaining sugar until light and fluffy.

Reduce speed to low, add the remaining ingredients, and beat until smooth.

Spoon 2 cups of the vanilla batter into the bowl with the cocoa mixture; blend until smooth.

Pour the vanilla batter into baking pan.

Spoon in the chocolate batter to create six puddles on top of the vanilla batter.

Using a knife, drag through the two batters to marbleize.

Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.


Melt the chocolate in a Pyrex measuring cup in a pan of simmering water; stir.

In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, and melted chocolate, adding just enough milk to make a spreadable frosting.

Frost the cooled cake
