Marble Cake

For me, marble cake is a classic childhood memory. May be that was the beginning of my stint with cooking, as I was always intrigued by how the chocolate and vanilla portion get mixed up so nicely. 


  • 300g butter , softened   
  • 300g sugar - grind to powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder

Preheat the oven to 180 degree C. Grease the cake dish with butter and sprinkle some flour.

Beat the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold through the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.

Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir the cocoa powder into the mixture in one of the bowls. Pour  chocolate and vanilla cake mixes into the baking dish simultaneously. When all the mixture has been used up,  tap the bottom on your work surface to ensure that there aren't any air bubbles. 

Take a fork and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.

Bake the cake for 45-55 mins until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool. 

Teatime treat is ready to be served.
