Chocolate Coffee Marble Cake Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
7 eggs, separated
3/4 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons sugar
2 squares (2 ounces) unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon Dunkin’ Donuts Vanilla coffee, brewed strong

Chocolate Coffee Frosting Ingredients:
1 pound confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar)
4 tablespoons cocoa
6 tablespoons boiling coffee
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Chocolate Coffee Marble Cake Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Make a well in the center and add oil, 7 egg yolks, 3/4 cup cold water, and vanilla.
Beat until smooth.
In another bowl, beat the 7 egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Pour the egg yolk mixture over the entire surface of egg whites, gently folding in to blend.
Remove 1/3 of the batter to another bowl.
Blend boiling water, sugar, chocolate and coffee and fold into the 1/3 portion of batter.
Spoon half of the light batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan; top with half of the chocolate-coffee batter. Repeat layers.
With a butter knife or narrow spatula, swirl marble cake batters gently to marbleize. Don't overdo or you'll have a brown batter instead of the desired marbleized effect.
Bake at 325 degrees F for an hour to 65 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick.
Remove the pan from the oven, invert and allow to cool.

Chocolate Coffee Frosting Directions:
In a large bowl, sift together the cocoa and the sugar.
Add the boiling coffee and melted butter, then add the vanilla extract.
Beat until smooth and thick enough to spread.
Frost the marble cake or pass out spoons and get a chocolate-coffee high!
