24 servings


2/3 cup butter, room temperature
2 2/3 cups granulated (white) sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

Add cocoa to remaining batter. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Spoon 1/2 vanilla batter into prepared pan. Place 1/2 chocolate batter by tablespoonfuls on top of vanilla batter; swirl chocolate batter with knife. Top with remaining vanilla batter. Spoon tablespoonfuls of remaining chocolate batter on top; swirl with knife.

Bake for 50 or 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on cooling rack.
