Thanks a ton! I will be getting any of these asap! and make a batch and parcel her from east coast to west coast. she is craving so much..for her mother's a simple pound cake and unfortunately, her mom did not get visa to travel to USA. So, hope this marble cake can make a difference!

We started a little query about your friend in need over on Food52's Twitter. Nigella Lawson suggests the marble cake from her book Feast, and a number of other people agreed that it is wonderful! The recipe from Sherry Yard's book The Secrets of Baking was also recommended. Here are links to both books:

Good luck!

There are a ton of recipes online:

YMMV, though, as I've never tried any of them!
