Butterscotch Marble Cake


Finished Cake

This is the first time I prepared a bundt pan cake that it did not fall apart as I tried to remove it from the pan. My pan is a nice heavy, metal one that I liberally greased with crisco and floured throughly. This is also the first time I prepared a chocolate drizzle glaze that it adhered to the cake the way it was suppose to. No weird clumps, no pools of icing on the plate. It dribbled gracefully over the sides and left picture perfect chocolate trails.

  • 1 package 2-layer-size white cake mix
  • 1 4-serving-size package instant butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup cooking oil
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup chocolate-flavored syrup
  • 2 ounces sweet baking chocolate, cut up
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • ¾ cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot water
  • Hot water (optional)
Grease and flour a 10-inch fluted tube pan; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, water, oil, and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping side of bowl often.
Transfer 1 ½  cups of batter to another bowl; stir in the chocolate-flavored syrup. Pour light batter into the prepared pan. Spoon chocolate batter over top. Using a knife, gently cut through batters to marble.
Bake in a 350º F oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
Meanwhile, for the icing, melt sweet baking chocolate and butter or margarine over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon hot water. Stir in additional hot water, if needed, to reach drizzling consistency.
Drizzle cake with icing.
