The Marble Gugelhupf Cake is a classic German cake – Gugelhupf in English would mean Bundt Cake. For this cake you use the special Gugelhupf form which can be purchased in the USA. The ingredients are well mixed together and removing from the form is easy when you grease the form very well, and sprinkle with flour or breadcrumbs. Please wait until the cake has cooled off completely; I know this is difficult ;).
