Im pretty sure everyone has eaten a marble cake before haven’t they? SO this is my take on how its made. Well, i made it this time mainly because i got a request from my cousin. Hence why im baking again.
I didnt follow any recipe in particular, just good old butter /pound cake recipe formulas from my mom.:D
- 250g Butter (2 sticks)
- 200g sugar(1 cup)
- 220g flour
- 10g baking powder(2 teaspoons)
- 20g milk powder(1 1/4 tablespoons)
- 100ml milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
- 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
Well before everything, put all your dry ingredients in a bowl, and prepare lining your cake pans or cupcake papers.Preheat your oven as well.
As seen in this picture, the first step was to cream together or beat the butter, sugar until its fluffy, Then add in eggs one at a time + your vanilla essence.
Then fold in some of the flour and milk, the repeat until batter is smooth and everything is added. if your batter isnt smooth add more milk a little at a time.
the perfect consistency is achieved when the batter is able to fall off your spatula like honey.
After that, separate them to 2 bowls to a ratio of 3:1. The one with smaller portion is the chocolate part, and here put in the cocoa powder and add a little milk to keep the consistency.
Then just put the plain batter into your moulds and scoop in little puddles of chocolate.
Look at them in the oven. hehe
yeah, this square one is going to my cousin, who requested me to make them ahaha.
Anyways, i really enjoyed this baking session and the cake turned out soo yummy. its super simple to make and the balance on how all the ingredients measurements are somewhat parallel makes it good.
I also realized a trick, i kinda left the batter in the electric mixer for quite awhile after adding in the eggs and this made the batter really really smooth! It was somewhat accidental, or unintentional but it made the cake 10x smoother and tastier.( in my opinion) so do let it mix for a while 🙂
What a sunday to bake such lovely cakes, cant wait to remake this again 😀
