  • Preheat oven to 325F and grease a 10-cup bundt pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour and baking powder, set aside.
  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx 5mins).
  • Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Add vanilla.
  • Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture in 3 portions, alternating with 2 portions of milk. Mix until just combined.
  • Separate the batter into 3 bowls.*
  • Add 2 Tbsp Dutch-processed cocoa powder to one and 2 Tbsp black cocoa to another. Mix each until well combined.
  • Prepare 3 separate pastry bags and fill each with one of the batters.
  • Pipe the batter, alternating the colors, into the cracks of the Heritage bundt pan, being careful to avoid spilling over into neighbouring cracks. **
  • Once cracks are sufficiently filled, add remaining batter in alternating layers and use a kitchen skewer to marble it. Spread the batter evenly.
  • Bake for 55-60mins or until a skewer comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and transfer bundt pan to cooling rack for 10-15mins. Rap the bundt pan against the counter to loosen it then turn cake out onto cooling rack to cool completely.


  • Combine powdered sugar and milk in a medium measuring cup. Stir until well combined. Add more milk as needed until desired consistency is reached. Pour glaze into cracks of cooled cake.


*I use a kitchen scale to weigh the batter to ensure I had even amounts, but a normal person would probably just eyeball it.
**I used a kitchen skewer for the finer points of the cracks. It's a process.
Note: Prep time is 45mins assuming you're doing the colored spirals. Otherwise it would take 20mins or so.
NOTE: Measurements in grams have not been tested. An online tool was used to convert these measurements.
