Hard way to do it.
Easy way to do it:
Just make a full recipe of vanilla, take out 1/4 to 1/3 of the batter, depending on how much chocolate you want, and add some cocoa powder to it until you like the taste & color.
Place dollops of the chocolate batter on top of the vanilla batter in the pan and drag a dinner knife thru the dollops in a swirling pattern.
Because the base is vanilla batter, it all bakes up evenly.
I love marble cake--great with oreo mousse filling.....
