Anyone who knows me can tell you I love bundt cakes. This Marble Bundt Cake really brings back some memories for me. I remember my grandma making marble cakes all the time.

I love how the outer edges become crispier than the rest of the cake, but inside is soft and buttery. This cake is a labor of love from scratch.

This bundt cake is made with one batter that is separated to make two flavors: a delicious chocolate and a creamy vanilla.

The same process could be achieved using a box cake mix in two flavors. But, sometimes making something pretty delicious can take a little bit and is worth the effort.

You can make one of these delicious cakes for birthdays, pot lucks and get togethers, holidays or just because!
