I cooked this cake twice in one week. The first cake turned out perfect. It was good and it was gone the same night. It took longer for the cake to cook but I believe its because of my oven. The second cake took longer but it was still good. My family enjoyed it.
Red Velvet Marble Bundt Cake
The trick to creating looping swirls is to gently layer the batter around the Bundt pan with a small cookie scoop. No need to swirl with a knife; it will marble as it bakes.
