Wikipedia: Marble cake
A marble cake (or Marmor) is a cake with a streaked or mottled appearance (like marble) achieved by very lightly blending light and dark batter. It can be a mixture of vanilla and chocolate cake, in which case it is mainly vanilla, with streaks of chocolate. Other possibilities are strawberry or other fruit flavors, or (particularly in marbled coffee cakes) cinnamon or other spices.

His parents went out letting Dennis bake
For their anniversary a marble cake,
But before his father found out the truth,
He had broken and lost a tooth,
Because one boy a recipe really garbles:
Dennis had put in real marbles!

When they tell you it’s a piece of cake, what they don’t tell you is it’s marble cake made with real marbles.
