Already Emperor Franz Joseph loved this cake at breakfast – the popular and well-known Marble Cake. It is not only its great taste but also its shape and striking marble effect which has made it a real treat as well as a feast for the eyes. It is, after all, not for nothing that we have the saying, “You also eat with your eyes!”
- 4 eggs
- 250 g sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pack vanilla sugar
- a little lemon juice
- 125 ml oil
- 125 ml water
- 1/2 sachet baking powder
- 250 g flour
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- icing sugar (for dusting)
Directions for Marble Cake
- Mix eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla sugar and lemon until frothy. Stir in oil and water alternating.
- To ensure that no lumps form in the Gugelhupf, sift the baking powder into the flour and carefully stir in both.
- Grease a Gugelhupf cake tin / Bundt pan with butter and dust with flour. Pour in most of the mixture and then stir in the cocoa into the remaining mixture.
- Pour in the mixture with the cocoa and swirl this through the rest of the mixture with a spoon to ensure that both mixtures are well blended.
- Bake the Guglhupf in a fan oven at 180 °C/ 350 °F for 60 minutes.
- Allow to cool, tip out of cake tin and dust with icing sugar.
If the cake is difficult to remove from the warm cake tin, take a sharp knife and carefully try to loosen it from the sides of the tin. Turn the tin upside down and tap gently on the base. If it still doesn’t come out, take a wet, ice-cold tea towel and place on the base of the tin. This will entice it out of the tin as it doesn’t like the cold!
This ring-shaped cake with a striking marble pattern is a flour-based dish with a great deal of tradition. The Gugelhupf started its journey around the world from Vienna during the Biedermeier period. At that time, no middle-class table of light dishes would have been seen without this delicately sugared, flour-based dish. Today it is served at any time of the day with coffee or tea. The word “gugel” means hood and also hints at the shape of this delicacy with its attractive marble effect.
Our traditional Gugelhupf belongs baked in such a form – right! Because only its shape makes the cake what it is.
The enamel tin can be used in all ovens. The rim of the enamel Guglhupf tin is curved – this is known as a rolled rim. Thanks to the iron core, the heat is evenly distributed, giving you exceedingly good baking results, and the tin itself is very easy to clean thanks to its non-porous, smooth surface.
There is also a large range of products for you to choose from, as the enamel Guglhupf tin comes in a variety of sizes and in a two-coloured version.

THE WORLD OF RIESS
It is cut and scratch resistant, easy to clean and does not change the taste of the food prepared in it – porcelain enamel has many advantages. The RIESS family, who lived in Austria, thought the same thing almost a long time ago when they began making tableware from this easy-care material in 1922.
Handmade with LOVE…
… this thought applies not only to us when we are cooking, but also to RIESS. The RIESS-Emaille manufactory in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel is the only cookware manufacturer in Austria and meanwhile the family business is well known far beyond its borders. In addition to kitchen utensils in classic white, there are pots, strainers, bowls, cups and the like in delicate pastel colours as well as animal and flower designs – so there is something for every taste.
The various products of „RIESS-Emaille“ made it all over the world to cult lifestyle objects.
