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 to get it out of the form you would grease the form first, then sprinkle with flour or breadcrumbs and wait until the cake has cooled off completely. Try it out, you will like it – it is also not that sweet! Happy Baking!
