Awesome Chocolate Marble Pound Cake


Moist, buttery and chocolaty cake looks so appealing as well. A perfect dessert when you have company coming over.















1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
½ cup butter
or margarine, softened
½ cup vegetable shortening
2 cups sugar
4 large eggs
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
3 cups all-purpose flour
teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract


Melt 1 tablespoon shortening and unsweetened chocolate in a small saucepan, stirring until smooth.

Set aside. Cream butter and shortening; gradually add sugar to creamed mixture, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.

Dissolve soda in buttermilk.

Combine flour and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.

Mix just until blended after each addition.

Stir in flavorings. Remove 2 cups of batter, and add chocolate mixture, stirring until blended.

Spoon one-third of remaining plain batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan; top with half of chocolate batter.

Repeat layers, ending with plain batter. Gently swirl batter with a knife to create a marble effect.

Bake at 350℉ (180℃) for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack.
