1/4 cup vegetable oil

Grease and lightly flour a 10 inch fluted tube pa (bundt). In a large mixer bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil, eggs & water. Beat at low speed of electric mixer till combined, then at medium speed for 2 minutes. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of batter. Turn remaining batter into pan. Stir together reserved batter and the chocolate syrup. Pour chocolate mixture atop butterscotch batter. Swirl with a metal spatula or spoon to marble. Bake at 350 about 60 minutes or till done. Cool 15 minutes on a wire rack. Invert onto rack; remove pan. Cool. Glaze with Chocolate Icing. (I just used a high quality chocolate fudge sauce this time). Enjoy!

This recipe is from my ancient copy of the Better Homes and Gardens "New Cook Book" that I've been using since I was in high school. Its tattered and has loose pages, but its served me well and I use it all the time. My mom, rest her soul, had an even older, worn copy of it that I am hoping my dad will give to me someday!!
