Chocolate Pumpkin Marble Cake

Layer chocolate and pumpkin batters and swirl with a knife to create the gorgeous marble effect. Top with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a chocolate glaze.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




  • 1 1/2 cups margarine, room temperature
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice mix
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup soy milk mixed with 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Chocolate Glaze or Powdered sugar for serving


  1. In the bowl of stand mixer, beat margarine and sugar until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Scrape half the mixture into another bowl
  2. Make pumpkin batter: Beat the pumpkin into the half of the mixture in the mixer, until well blended.  In another bowl, stir together 1 3/4 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and beat on low speed just until blended.
  3. To make chocolate batter: In another bowl, mix remaining 1 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the cocoa. Add flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the other half of the batter mixture (starting and ending with flour mixture), beating after each addition just until blended.
  4. Spray and flour a 12 cup bundt pan.  Spoon half the pumpkin batter into pan.  Spoon half of the chocolate batter over top and repeat with the rest of batters.  Gently run the blade of a butter knife around the center of the pan several times, then draw the knife across the width of the pan in 10 to 12 places to swirl batters.
  5.  Bake in a 350° oven until a wood skewer inserted into center of cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 55 to 60 minutes. Let cake cool 10 minutes in pan, then invert onto a rack, lift off pan, and cool cake completely.
  6. Top with powdered sugar or make a quick glaze by mixing 1/2 cup confectioners sugar with 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1-2 tablespoons soy milk.

    does this really require 3 cups of sugar to 2 and 3/4 cup flour? i would try this cake, but not interested if it requires 3 cups of sugar. . ..

  2. Oh yum! This looks moist and delicious.

    Cake in the oven- a bit labor intensive, raw batter tastes great, used only 2 cups sugar (always decrease amount), also use Earth Balance margarine and rice milk instead of soy milk.
    good luck to me!

  4. I just made this recipe and I cut everything in half. I think if I had followed the whole recipe it would have spilled out of the bundt pan. I’ll let you know how it tastes after Shabbat.

    • It might depend on the size of your bundt pan, if anyone does have that problem, they can just make some muffins on the side. Let us know how it tastes. Have a great Shabbos.

    I just took this cake out of the oven. It looks amazing!! I followed the recipe exactly and it did not fall out of my bundt pan. If the cake tastes half as good as the batter then it’s a keeper!!!

    We made this for Shabbos a few weeks back, it was so moist and delicious.
