I know. I am almost two weeks behind on this post! Stress just gets me so far behind on life. For National Chocolate Cake Day on January 27th (see, I told you so), Dorie encouraged us all to bake her Double Chocolate Marble Cake from her latest book Baking Chez Moi to celebrate. She was even kind enough to post the recipe on her blog which you can find here.
I liked it well enough — the flavor is quite delicate. My only qualm is that I wish the white chocolate cake were more white chocolate-y. Is that even a thing? When you eat the dark chocolate marble, you can definitely taste the dark chocolate, but not as much with the reverse. It’s more white cake-y. I guess this is to say that I liked it so much that I wish there were more of that flavor to balance out the dark chocolate.
Again, though, another lovely cake. Go make it! I don’t think it will last too long in your house.
