Marble cakes are made with two different distinct colour and flavours to achieve a swirly marble like appearance. It can be a chocolate-vanilla, strawberry-chocolate, chocolate-mint…any combinations that you prefer.

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

3 Tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 stick/4oz butter

4 eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract




Pre heat oven to 190C/ gas 5.

Line either a 9” round or square tin or 2 1lb loaf tins.

Beat the butter and sugar until creamy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating for a minute after each addition.

Add milk and mix again.

Add vanilla extract and mix well.

Sieve flour and baking powder together into the batter and fold in.

Once completely mixed, divide the batter into two different bowls.

Sieve the cocoa powder into one of the bowls and mix in well.

With a ladle take the chocolate batter and drop dollops of the batter into tin, with a little gap in between them. Next take vanilla batter and drop dollops over the chocolate one. Continue the process till you are finished with all the cake batter. Take a knife and make few ‘S’ shaped motion on the batter.

    Looks good. Love marble cake – guess I’m a bit of a “purist”; prefer the vanilla-cocoa combination. Will try this recipe soon.:)
