"This recipe was given to me many years ago by a friend. Teaming chocolate with butterscotch for a marble cake makes it more flavorful and colorful than the usual chocolate-vanilla combination. This rich family favorite is very moist and keeps well. -Pam Giammattei, Valatie, New York"

  • add   FROSTING:
  • add   1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • add   1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips, melted

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream and oil; beat on low speed for 2 minutes. Divide batter in half; stir butterscotch chips into half and chocolate into the other half. Spoon half of the butterscotch batter in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan; top with half of the chocolate batter. Repeat layers. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl.

  3. For frosting, combine butterscotch chips and chocolate in a small mixing bowl. Beat in enough cream until the frosting is smooth and reaches desired spreading consistency. Spread over top of cake. Sprinkle with pecans.
