My first post: Gluten-free Marble Bundt Cake

A few years ago I found a wonderful baking book, by Tish BoyleThe Cake Book was my inspirations for years, and I feel that the best tribute I can pay to it and its author, is to start my first blog with one of its recipes. Rich Marble Pound Cake with Chocolate Glaze becomes a Gluten-free Marble Bundt Cake, because, yes, I do love bundt cakes – or ciambelle, how we call them in Italy.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 342 gr 342 Simona’s Flour Mix   – 3 cups

  • 2 teaspoons 2 Baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 Salt

  • 500 gr 500 Granulated sugar, divided – 2 1/2 cups

  • 48 gr 48 Unsweetened Cocoa powder – 1/2 cup

  • 90 gr 90 Boiling water – 6 Tablespoons

  • 340 gr 340 Unsalted butter, softened – 1 1/2 cup

  • 5 large 5 Eggs

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons 1 1/2 Vanilla extract

  • 120 gr 120 Heavy cream – 1/2 cup

  • 2 Tablespoons 2 Glycerin 

  • Chocolate Ganache
  • 240 gr 240 Heavy cream – 1 cup

  • 9 oz 9 Bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped


  • Preheat your oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You know your oven better than anyone else, so adjust the temperature according to your experience. I, for example, have a convection oven that runs its temperature a little low, so I set it to 375 degrees instead.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together 1/2 cup (100 gr) of sugar, the cocoa, and the 6 tablespoons (90 gr) of boiling water.
  • In a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, beat the butter at medium speed until very creamy. Gradually beat in the remaining 400 gr of sugar. Increase the speed and beat until the mixture is well blended and light.
  • At low speed add the eggs, two at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • Measure flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl measure heavy cream, vanilla and glycerin. Alternate dry and wet ingredients in three additions, until blended.
  • Add approximately three cups of the batter to the cocoa mixture, and mix very well. (My older son loves chocolate, so I tend to use more than three cups of the batter for my cake.)
  • Grease a bundt pan and flour it (with Simona’s Flour Mix.) Alternate layers of vanilla and chocolate batter, starting with vanilla. You should have four layers. Insert a knife and marble the cake.
  • Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes first, then turn it and bake for another 25 minutes. Increase the time 10 minutes by 10 minutes until the center holds your print and springs back.
    Let it cool for 10 minutes on a cooling rack, before inverting the cake on the same rack. Let it cool completely.
  • Prepare the ganache. In a microwave safe bowl warm the heavy cream to a boil. Add the chocolate and let stand for a few minutes. With a whisk, start from the center of the bowl and mix  until the chocolate is completely melted and the ganache is smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let it cool before using.
  • Drizzle the Marble Cake with the ganache and enjoy!


  • The amount of ganache in this recipe will cover your cake, and then some. You can refrigerate it up to a couple of weeks, but remember to warm it up before using it again. In my home, we drizzle it on ice-cream, and it tastes fantastic!
