Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 (18 1/4-oz.) pkg. fudge marble cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 (1-oz.) bottle red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla Frosting:
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preparation

  1. Combine dry cake mix, fudge marble packet and baking soda in a medium bowl; add remaining ingredients. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until moistened. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour batter into 2 greased and floured 9" round cake pans. Bake at 350° for 20 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; turn out onto a wire rack. Cool completely; if desired, freeze layers overnight to make cake easier to frost. Spread vanilla frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake.
  3. Vanilla Frosting: Whisk flour and milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  4. In a medium bowl, blend butter and sugar; add chilled milk mixture. Beat for 8 minutes or until fluffy; stir in vanilla.
