Swedish Marble Cake (Tigerkaka)
18 Reviews.
This homemade soft marble cake has the flavor of vanilla and chocolate. In Swedish this cake is called "Tigerkaka" which means Tiger cake because the stripes resemble the ones on a tiger. To get the nice marble pattern is the tricky part. The easiest way to make them is to gently stir a fork in the batter right before you place the cake in the oven.
