One of the items I like to keep in my pantry are cake mixes.

I did a lot of baking when my son was on the football team for bake sales,

team dinners and even to sell at the concession stand during football games.

One of the cakes that was always a favorite was this marble bundt cake.

AND it starts off with a cake mix making it really easy to put together.

It’s a delicious cake and so pretty when you cut into it.

I like to serve it with powdered sugar but you can make a chocolate glaze

icing that you can pour on top as well.  

Either way, I think your family will enjoy this delicious and pretty dessert.

Marble Bundt Cake from a Cake Mix


  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in 20 - 30 second intervals. Stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Combine the cake mix, eggs, vanilla extract, sour cream, vegetable oil, sugar and water in a mixing bowl using an electric mixer or stand mixer. Beat on high for 5 minutes or until everything is combined.
  3. Remove 1/3 of the cake batter and stir it into the melted chocolate mixing well.
  4. Spread half of the yellow cake mix batter into the cake pan that has been sprayed well with cooking spray. Then spread the chocolate batter on top followed by the remaining yellow cake batter. Using a butter knife, swirl the batters together to create the "marbled" look.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven.
  6. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Remove the cake from the pan and let cool completely.
