Marble Cake {Marmorkuchen} #Dairyfree - #SundaySupper #HelpingHands

The theme for this week's Sunday Supper is Helping Hands Dishes for Friends in Need. Our host this week is Liz who writes this fantastic blog. We have come together to raise awareness and help those that have been affected by the havoc Hurricane Sandy caused.  The damage this storm is unimaginable - So many homes have been destroyed, families displaced, many have lived without power for weeks. For those effected it has been devastating and so much help is still needed.

The #SundaySupper team has come together today and brings to the table dishes for those in need. I am bringing Marmorkuchen {Marble Cake}; a nice, comforting cake, that can be dunked in coffee, or tea to help warm you up and give a little "pick-me-up" with its flavors of chocolate and vanilla.

Marble Cake {Marmorkuchen} Dairyfree

- 2 sticks plus 5 Tbl Earth Balance or other Vegan Margarine {300 gr)
- 1-1/2 C of sugar {275 gr}

- 5 Eggs
- 2-1/2 (generous) C of flour {375 gr}

*Preheat oven to 375F
1. Cream margarine in a blender, and slowly add sugar, vanilla and pinch of salt.  When it is blended
    thoroughly and smooth, add
2. eggs - one at a time and blend each for about half a minute,
3. in a separate bowl mix flour with baking powder,
4. add the flour in steps - 1/2 C at a time, blend well - add Soy Milk as needed; when all the flour {and
    liquid - only use as much as you need to keep the dough smooth} is incorporated,
5. fill about 2/3 of the dough into a bundt cake pan and smooth out;
6. add the chocolate powder and additional Soy Milk to the remaining dough. Mix up until it is smooth,
    and rich with chocolate; next

    the chocolate dough under the vanilla dough. When done smooth top of dough,
8. Put in preheated oven and bake for app. 50 minutes to an hour; or until an inserted toothpick {be careful not to burn yourself} comes out clean.
9. Remove from pan once it has cooled off a little.  For finishing dust with powdered sugar.
