Chocolate Chips Sour Cream Marble Cake

Yummy Bakes | 12:02 PM |
When I saw this cake at HBS, Wen's Delight, Bakericious and Hearty-Bakes, it looks like a big donut to me but on further reading then I realised its a delicious marble cake, fluffy and moist.  This is definitely a keeper recipe.

This tender-crumbled, lusciously flavored butter cake is such a delight! It actually slices like velvet, so yummy!

    1. kitchen flavours - this is indeed a nice cake - my only regret it took me too long to try this out having book-marked for long ago!

  2. Tried this before, and love it!

  3. Love the marble effect. Must be very soft with the yogurt added.
