Marble Cake Recipe
Come 9:30pm yesterday, I really wanted a yummy treat. So, like any crazy person, I decided to bake one right then. I searched my cupboards and decided on marble cake with butter cream and as I had some leftover walnuts from another baking session, I thought I’d try it out. To my Hubby’s delight it turned out just as I’d hoped.
Ingredients for Cake
225g Plain Flour
225g Caster Sugar
225g Softened Butter
2 tsp Baking Powder
100g Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
4 Medium Eggs
2 tbsp Milk
Ingredients for Topping
200g Icing Sugar
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
½ tsp Milk
Using a pre greased and floured 8-9″ spring release cake pan. (Phew, that was a mouthful)
Pre-heat oven to 180°C.
Cream butter and sugar in electric mixer until pale. Add one egg at a time mixing thoroughly between each addition. Stir in Vanilla.
In a separate bowl sieve flour and baking powder together.
Add spoonfuls of flour into butter mixture along with milk. Mix briefly until flour is incorporated.
Using a large spoon place half the mixture into the pan in 4 individual spots. Add Cocoa to the remaining mixture, stir thoroughly and fill in the gaps in the cake pan with the chocolate mixture.
Using a skewer or something similar, swirl the chocolate into the vanilla and vice-versa. But not so much that you lose the vanilla too much.
Bake for 40 Mins or until firm to touch or skewer comes out clean.
Once cooled on a rack prepare the topping.
Mix together butter and icing sugar and add in milk.
Spread over the top of the cake generously and sprinkle on the walnuts, or a nut of your choice.
Now all there is to do is let everyone enjoy and appreciate your hard work!
