Marbled Chocolate and Turmeric Bundt Cake {VEGAN}

Vegan Marbled Cake Recipe (Tumeric and Chocolate)

Turmeric in a cake? YES! I just love the colour that this wonderful Indian spice has. And I thought it would be a great idea to spice up the traditional German Marbled Cake with turmeric.

The colour of the cake batter was really yellow, however the cake itself turned out to be rather orange. Kind of a “tiger-cake” – do you agree or do I just have too much imagination?

Print Recipe
Serves: 12 pieces Cooking Time: 90 minutes


  • 400 g flour
  • 15 g corn starch
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 230 g sugar
  • 150 ml sunflower oil
  • 350 ml (almond) milk + 1 tbsp
  • 2 tbsp apple vinegar
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 3-4 tsp turmeric
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar



Mix together flour, corn starch, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda in a bowl.


Add oil and milk (except of the extra tablespoon) and mix together well.


Now add the apple vinegar, mix in shortly.


Separate the mixture into two equal parts. Add vanilla sugar and turmeric to the one half and cocoa powder and the extra tablespoon of milk to the other half. Once you’ve finished mixing in the extra ingredients you can start filling the bundt cake tin.


Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180°C.


Fill your greased bundt cake tin with the cake batter, adding a layer of each colour alternately. You can use a tablespoon to scoop the dough into the cake tin. You will need a couple of tablespoons per layer.


Bake the cake for 50-60 minutes at 180°C. The cake is done once a wooden skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.


Leave the cake to cool for at least half an hour before removing it from the bundt cake tin.


Once you’ve removed it from the tin, you can dust it with icing sugar!
