These marble muffins will make an easy, fun recipe to serve as dessert or afternoon sweet treat. Marbled muffins get their name from the mottled appearance created by chocolate and vanilla swirls. The muffins are soft and moist, with a delicious chocolate and vanilla flavor.

To make them, you will need a few baking staples like eggs, flour, and sugar, and dairy products like milk and cream. Whisk the ingredients together in two separate bowls (one for chocolate and one for vanilla), before piping them into muffin molds. Not only do they taste delicious, but they make great snacks for lunchboxes too!

Tips

You can also frost these muffins with thin, spreadable icing (also known as glaze icing). Whip up a quick and easy glaze icing by whisking together 2 cups of confectioners’ sugar, 2 tbsp butter, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and up to 4 tsp milk (or coffee). Drizzle and spread over the cooled muffins.

Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the cake batter to accentuate the chocolate flavor!

Add more chocolate flavor by stirring in semisweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips.

Use a gluten-free flour blend to make this cake gluten-free.

Marble the with other flavors, adding lemon, peppermint, or almond extract to the vanilla batters. Coffee also works well with the chocolate batter. Add 1 tablespoon of instant coffee to the vanilla batter and stir through.
