This is a fudgy cake that is very rich and there is more work involved than the usual marble cake.

I just took this cake out of the oven and thought I'd offer that the cooking time is incorrect. Using another cake recipe with similar ingredients as a guide, I cooked the cake for an hour instead of the 1 3/4 hour that is written on the recipe. It appears moist and beautiful and passes the tooth pick test. Fast forward two days...When we cut the cake for my husband's birthday the next day, it was beautiful and tasted great! It's a hit in our family. Good luck!

I made this with 3 kids, followed directions perfectly and it was not good, very dense like a bread, the batter was delicious so I am curious if the cooking time of 1 3/4 hours is incorrect. The cake was dull and almost dry.
