?...Vanilla & Chocolate Marble Cake...?

My son asked for a chocolate cake, but I so wanted to bake this marble cake after seeing Namitha's. Somehow managed to convince him that I gonna bake a cake with lots of chocolate flavours in it.

Not to disappoint him, I added cocoa in half of the batter. Please don't ask me where the marble disappeared...hahaha! Truly soft and delicious cake, do try it...no regrets.



VANILLA & CHOCOLATE MARBLE CAKE adapted from Martha Stewart and Archana Thomas.


Ingredients :~

113gm unsalted butter 1 cup sugar 2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt1 3/4 cups cake flour (may sub with 1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour + 1/4 cup cornflour) 3 large eggs 1 tsp vanilla essence 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder
Method :~
In a bowl, whisk together cake flour, baking powder and salt. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beat until well combined. Add vanilla. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with buttermilk. Beat over low speed. Set aside 1/4 of the batter and add cocoa, stir until well combined. Spoon batters into a cake tin in 2 layers, alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate to simulate a checkerboard. To create marbling, run a table knife (or wooden skewer) through the batters in a swirling motion. Bake about 40 to 50 minutes. Transfer tin onto a wired rack for 10 minutes. Release cake from tin and cool completely. This cake can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
Watch out, Humungousaur is waiting!!! :)
