Chocolate Marble Cake Recipe

Marble Cake, Chocolate vanilla swirled cake, German Chocolate Marble Cake, Easy Cake, easy glazeHello Friends!! What an eventful week it was. Busy busy busy. We launched our baby this Thursday and introduced it at SXSW, Texas. Yeah, baby!! We straight go to

So, we have been busy working on this start-up for last one year or so and finally we wrapped things up and launched it.  Kudos to the team back in India that gave shape and size to a thought that came from two very eccentric people from here.  You know who I meant. 😀

So big reveal, yeah. It’s a social networking app packed with state of the art features to make your socializing – cool and happening and robust. The app is called TheGoodTimeApp and it comes with a tag line called – let’s get social again. So, yes, let’s get social again…,shall we?

Please hop on over to the App store and download the app and take a look? Here are the links:

I can’t wait for you guys to use it and come back to me with your thoughts. I mean it.

The culture that I come from, we celebrate every new beginning with something sweet. So here is my celebratory home-baked Chocolate Marble Cake that I baked to celebrate our app’s launch. I miss my partner in crime – Vikram, who is the mastermind behind this whole thing. Right now he is busy talking about the app at SXSW. Those who don’t know what SXSW is, check this out here : It’s THE platform for people who want to take their discoveries or innovations to the very next level.chocolate_marble_cake_recipe

Coming back to the Chocolate Marble Cake, it came out to be so good, moist and delicious that, I didn’t even get a chance to photograph it with my food photography lens. Everyone was eager to eat. So please bear with the iphone pics. My husband took some with him to Chicago as well. Yes, it was that good. From now onwards, this Chocolate Marble Cake is going to be my celebratory cake.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.

  1. I love bundt cakes. They always look pretty, and you don’t have to spend hours decorating them. This cake looks and sounds delicious. Olive oil is amazing in cakes….so moist. I would serve this as dessert any day of the week…and it would make a wonderful birthday cake too.
