Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsalted butter plus more to grease a 10 x 3.5 inch bundt pan
  • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour plus more to dust the bundt pan
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch kosher or coarse sea salt
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting

To Prepare

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a bundt pan and coat with flour, dusting off any excess flour.
  • In a stand mixer, beat the butter using the paddle attachment on medium-high speed until soft and creamy, anywhere from 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sugar and continue beating until fluffy and puffy.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, mix the eggs with vanilla and sour cream.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low, and take turns adding flour mixture and egg mixture. Continue beating until thoroughly combined, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula if need be. Transfer 1/3 the dough to another bowl, leaving the remaining 2/3 of the dough in the mixer.
  • In a small bowl, thoroughly combine the hot water and cocoa. With a rubber spatula, fold the cocoa mixture into the 1/3 of the batter set aside in an extra bowl until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  • To the batter left in the mixer, add the orange zest, almond extract and orange juice, and beat until completely mixed.
  • With two ice cream scoops or measuring cups, alternate dropping the chocolate batter and the orange-almond batter into the bundt pan. When all the batter is in the pan, run a butter knife or a skewer through it to create the marbled look.
  • Bake the cake for 50 to 60 minutes, until springy to the touch, lightly browned and a toothpick inserted comes out moist, but not wet. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool.
  • Once cool, run a butter knife around the cake and invert onto a platter. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve.

    Hi Pati,
    I am from Australia and I love your shows. I tried this cake today and he was delicious. I will however swap the sour cream for some vanilla yoghurt as I felt it lacked a bit of sweetness. Also I beat it with my hand beater/mixer as I dont owm a stand mixer, it worked just as fine.
    Keep up inspiring us with your cooking.
    Blessings

      Thanks Danielle for reaching out, let me know how it comes out with yogurt, sounds like a great idea to me. Enjoy 🙂

    The best cake I’ve ever made.
    Instructions were easy to follow.
    My family loved it- I served it with fresh fruit and wiped cream on the side for the children but the adults enjoyed it plain with a cup coffee
    Thank you.

    I loved your story, on how you made this for your husband/beau’s grandmother, when you first met her. I have a coworker , who brings us employees, every week during the season, bags of fresh, local, organic and amazingly sweet/perfectly tangy oranges.
    As a thank you, I will make him a new dessert each year, for him to take home, and one for us employees, to show case our bounty. One year. I made this for him. I think it’s time, to hear the Tiger roar again, LOL. I will be making 2 of these, this weekend. Thank you for sharing.

    I made this for Thanksgiving. It was a big hit! I used sugar instead of flour after greasing the pan and it gave it a nice finish. Thanks Pati!

    Just checking the recipe and I realized that there is not orange in the ingredients list. But in the preparation part it asks for orange zest. In this case is something little.
    Maybe it will good to make the correction. It is frustrating when you star a recipe and the it comes out wrong because the recipe is incomplete.
    Let’s see how it taste when I bake that looking good cake.

    1. Pati Jinich

      Oct 18

      Oh there is both orange zest and orange juice listed in the ingredients. And you incorporate them once the batter has been mixed. I hope you enjoy the cake, Maria.

    This was sooo good. Lasted for days. Moist. Added orange food coloring which turned the outside more orange-y, but strangely, not the inside. I greased and sugared the bundt pan. Took about 20 minutes longer than Pati’s timing.

    dear lord, this cake is wonderful! I dont consider myself a baker, but needed a new project. With a nice bottle of red wine, I took my time and followed the recipe exactly. It came out exactly like pati’s. After I saw it on the show I knew I was going to make it, glad I did. Thanks Pati!…male, 61, south carolina

      Absolutely! You will have to adjust the bake time a bit, so keep an eye on it.

    Apr 08

    Oh no, wish I had read comments before baking!! Used a standard Bunt pan. It’s 60 minutes in oven and is erupting like a volcano. Hope the middle eventually bakes. Fortunately I had anticipated that it might be too much batter and put a cookie sheet below to avoid too much of a mess to clean up. Next time I’ll put extra batter into cupcake tins.

    Pati, why don’t you edit recipe with note of caution about volume to help folks out?

    1. Pati Jinich

      Thank you for the suggestion, Donna! I’m sorry that it created a mess…but glad you enjoyed the cake.

    Thank you! Made this cake during the week! But will make again today. It’s really good. Just the on I had was a little smaller and it over filled. Will have to make cupcakes or something with the rest of the batter so it doesn’t overfill.

    1. Pati

      Mar 06

      Oh cupcakes will be great!

    The recipe is easily halved – a bonus for a small family with a small bundt pan.
    Fabulous cake! Easy to prepare with readily available ingredients. Super moist and the flavours remain distinctive yet complement each other well. A definite keeper!

    1. Pati

      Feb 04

      So glad you enjoyed the flavors and that it is a keeper, Oriana!

    Forgive me if I’m missing something, but I really want to make this cake. In comparing this recipe to what you made in the episode I saw it on, I’m not sure what to do with the sour cream? You don’t use it in the episode 10 season 6. Please help.

    1. Pati

      Dec 17

      Oh sometimes I tweak recipes after the show to make them even better, Adam. Please follow the recipe that is on the site (with the sour cream). Enjoy the pound cake!

        I just noticed I misspelled a word. It should have said “pan de polvo.” Spell check changed my word.
        BTW, I did make your cake yesterday, and it was delicious. My husband did want some kind of orange glaze. Do you have one that you would recommend?
        Thanks,

    Great recipe again, Patti! Thank you. The cake is delicious with the perfect balance of flavors. It’s not too sweet which I love.I had some batter left over as my bundt pan is a little smaller. I used the batter to make cupcakes. They were as much appreciated as the cake itself.

    1. Pati

    Hello Pati,
    I wrote earlier about the Tiger Cake getting oily and gummy. The folks at King Arthur Flour said it was because I over-beat the mix after adding the flour, causing it to rise like a soufflé, then collapse in a dense heap. It should have been only gently and briefly mixed in. I will try it again that way. Thank you again for a lovely recipe and charming TV show.

    1. Pati

      May 16

      Oh thanks for sharing Ann. Good luck the second time!

  32. Ann

    May 10

    Hello Pati,
    The flavors of this cake were divine and the tiger stripes were stunning, but my cake turned out very oily and a bit gummy, while the crust was approaching black/brown. Oven is good. I’m going to try again with different flour and baking powder, and a tiny bit less butter. Any other suggestions? I want to get it right, but I’m not an experienced baker. Love your show! Thank you.

    1. Pati

      May 16

      Oh no, I’m so sorry, it’s hard to pin point exactly what it is, but maybe that it was just overlooked by a few minutes?

    if I wanna make a smaller cake, should I divide all the ingredients into half including the baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and all other small ingredients? or just use half the flour, butter,eggs and sugar?

    1. Pati

      May 05

      Yes cut all the ingredients in half if you want to make a smaller cake.

    Although I’ve been baking for many years, I had never made a marbled cake. Yesterday I made this one – and its amazing! My husband says its the best tasting cake ever, and it is simply beautiful. I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a 6-cup bundt pan – perfect!

        I did the same… halfing it works great and since I did not have enough orange juice I added orange liquor … yummy and because I made this with no planning I had to use a sour cream and greek yoghurt .. but it worked great.. what a good recipe … I also added 1/2 tsp of instant decaf coffee powder to the coco mix…

      If you want, you can use the ganache from this recipe: https://patijinich.com/pati_2020/recipe/chocolate-crepe-tower/ But it is also really good on its own.

    I am going to make this in a few days. If I am unsure if my bundt pan is big enough (10×3.5) could I just adjust how far up I fill the pan so the batter doesn’t overflow?

    1. Pati

      Feb 08

      Yes…and you can make less batter too 🙂 or make two bundts!

    Grandson’s just checked in –“The Cake is amazing!” High praise from two 16 yrs. olds. My lunch group also thought it delicious. It’s worth a new mixer to be able to make this on a whim. Could not be a better cake. I know why his Grandmother was impressed.

    Pati,

    Thank you for this recipie. I made this for New Year’s and it was a hit! This reminds me of “mantecadas”.
    I have a brunch coming up and would like to make this recipie as a muffin. Do you have any suggestions on baking time? And once again thank you for your culinary inspirations.

    1. Pati

      Jan 17

      Oh they will cook quicker in a muffin and it depends on the size of your tins. Keep on eye on them and check them with a tooth pick (it should come out moist not wet) and the muffins should be lightly brown. Have a great brunch!

    I have a question. I made the Tiger Cake yesterday and it was much thinner than what I saw on your program. So much so, that the plain and chocolate batters just ran together when i spooned them into my pan. Any thoughts?

    1. Pati

      Jan 12

      ​That happens sometimes with marbled pound cakes…the uneven marbling is part of the fun! Also, I call it Tiger Cake not because it has stripes, but because of the two colors. You can also try a different marbling technique. First pour the orange batter and then the chocolate batter on top, and using a large wooden stick or a butter knife you make a swirl from one end to the other. Let me know how the second on goes 🙂

  47. Jan Gersabeck

    I appreciate your recipes and enjoy your cooking program inmensly. I feel very inspired by your love to México and its culture. I live in the border between El Paso, Tx and Juarez, Mx. and are faced up daily with the challenge to keep my roots but also embrace my borderlander reality and cooking mexican dishes with an American twist really works for me and my family. I suggest for your program northern border dishes we also have a very unique cuisine (burritos, tacos de discada, chile pasado, machaca con huevo, menudo norteño, queso menonita, quesadillas de asadero, etc.) that is also part of Mexico’s comida.

    Hola Pati..

    I just want to let you know how much of an inspiration you are to me. You are like sunshine and a wonderful teacher. I just watched the episode when you were in Oaxaca surrounded by the women who are “in charge” of their communities, and it brough me to tears (of joy) for witnessing such an inspiring source of strength. We women are the backbone of the world, and to see it is indeed beautiful. Now for the tiger cake…as soon as I finish this…I’m making it😆. The combination of chocolate and oranges is a lovely cokbination. Feliz Natividad to you and your family💟

    Hi Pati,
    I was so excited to make this recipe for my family after my father saw your show and announced that he just HAD to try this cake! Unfortunately, despite following the recipe so carefully, it never fully cooked in the oven, despite the beautiful brown crust on the top (and I baked it for 60 minutes at 350!). The outside of the cake was very pale and slumped over, with the middle very greasy/gummy and unbaked in the very center. I’m wondering if the reason was my pan–it is an older bundt pan that is a very pale light metal, not dark like yours. I wonder if it would have browned better if I had used a darker pan instead. I ended up salvaging it by slicing it and then baking the slices on a tray in the oven so it could finish, and my family still loved the flavor. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have or insight into what might have gone wrong! Thank you, and Happy last night of Hanukkah!

    1. Pati

      Dec 22

      Oh no… so sorry to hear this! It may be the pan, it may be the temperature too! But if your oven works at normal temperatures and times for other recipes it could be the pan.

    Hola Pati! We love watching your show on Create TV when we can catch it, and this weekend we saw this episode. You made the making and eating of this cake look so enticing, I just had to make it! It did not disappoint, however I wonder what might have made my batter so high and fluffy. The only thing I could think of that might have made a difference was that I only had 3 sticks of butter, and had to use 1/2 cup of cream cheese to match the 2 cups of butter required in your recipe. It really was a luscious looking batter, my kids and I were tempted to just eat it like a rich whipped custard. The crumb matches your photo, but I had entirely too much batter, and, anticipating that the cake would spill over my bundt pan while baking, I put a cookie sheet on the bottom rack to catch the extra batter, and ended up with a 2nd cake, “freeform style” haha. But for making a cake like this for the first time, I was impressed with how wonderful this recipe turned out! Now I just have to find a larger cake pan or try what someone else suggested and make mini loaves. I am so grateful to you for your hard work and example as a professional who is successful at doing what she loves while keeping family life a priority. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes. Muchas gracias!

      So happy it worked as a double cake!! My bundt pan is indeed high. You can cut the batter in half for the pan you have!!

    Hola, Pati

    Question about the cocoa powder: Dutch process or natural? Or does it make any difference?

    Muchas gracias y feliz año nuevo!

    1. Pati

      Jan 04

      I used a regular round bundt pan, which is about 10.5″ diameter and 3.5″ height. I hope you like the cake!

    Hey Patti,
    Love you, love your show! Your take on Mexico, family and friends is heartwarming. You not only provided interesting recipes, but make me so relaxed and smiling while I watch.
    My question…if I cut the recipe in half and bake it in a half size bunt cake pan, how long should I bake it?
    Thanks.

    1. Pati

      Dec 22

      It should just be about 6 to 10 minutes less…check with a toothpick and take out as soon as toothpick comes out moist but not wet.

    This looks wonderful! Want to try it out but do you think I could substitute vanilla extract for the almond?? While I love almond flavor, my family are not big fans of it.

    1. Pati
