Marble Cake Recipe

This recipe is fairly hard to read but I will do my best to transcribe it.  The cake sounds as though it would be wonderful — a white cake, swirled with a darker molasses-spice cake.

Marble Cake

White Part
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sweet milk
3 egg whites
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

Dark Part
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour milk
1 cup molasses
3 egg yolks
1 teaspoon soda
Cinnamon, Spice and Cloves
2 1/2 cups flour

Mix each part (white and dark) in separate bowls.  For the white part, cream together the butter and sugar.  Add the milk and egg whites, stir to combine.  Gradually add flour and baking soda until batter is smooth.  Season with salt to taste.

For the dark part, combine sugar, milk, and molasses.  Beat in the egg yolks.  Add soda and spices — I am uncertain of the quantity to use but likely no more than 1 1/2 teaspoons in total (maybe: 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, 1/4 tsp. cloves).

I’m assuming that you could make this in a 9×13 pan, alternating between pouring in the white and dark portions.  When fully poured into the pan, stick a knife at one end and draw it across the pan to swirl the two mixtures together.  Repeat 2 more times at different spots in the pan.

Uncertain of baking, but likely 350 for 30-35 minutes until it tests done.
