How to Make Strawberry Marble Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter a deep 9 inch square baking pan. Line with parchment paper. Butter the paper. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer at high speed until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time,beating until just blended after each addition. With mixer at low speed, gradually beat in dry ingredients, alternating with milk and vanilla. Put half the batter in another bowl. Stir the cocoa into one bowl and the red food coloring into the other. Drop alternate spoonfuls of the two batters into the prepared pan, swirling them together with a knife to create a marbled effect. Bake until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack. Carefully remove parchment paper and let cool completely. For the frosting, with mixer at medium speed, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add the cocoa and milk and beat until smooth and spreadable. Spread the top and sides of cake with frosting. Decorate with the strawberries. Serves 8 to 10
