Choco-Vanilla Marble Cake

Another successful bake !! Since we failed terribly in baking a plum cake, we decided to go with Marble cake. Something that went right on the first go.

Preparation time: 45 minutes | Difficulty Level: Medium | Bakes: One cake in 9 inch round mould


    • Maida / All Purpose Flour – 2 cups
    • Baking Powder – 2 teaspoons
    • Salt – a pinch
    • Butter – ½ cup
    • Sugar – 1 cup
    • Egg – 2
    • Milk – 1 cup
    • Vanilla Essence – 1 teaspoon
    • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – 2 tablespoons

How To

  • Sieve all-purpose flour/maida, salt and baking powder thrice and keep aside. This is done to ensure that the baking powder and maida get mixed properly.
  • Slightly mix sugar and butter together in a bowl.
  • Beat in the eggs. Beat till it becomes creamy.
  • Add vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Now add the flour in two or three additions alternating with milk. Do not over beat, just mix till well combined in low speed.
  • Separate ¾ cup batter into another bowl and slowly stir in the cocoa powder. Mix really well using a spoon.
  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
  • Drop 2 or 3 spoons of the cocoa mixed batter into the greased/lined pan. Pour the remaining white (vanilla) batter into the pan. Swirl using a knife to get the marble effect. Again drop the remaining cocoa batter by spoonful over the white (vanilla) batter. Swirl again.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Place on a wire rack to cool for 15-20 minutes.

Tips: I am using a IFB Microwave for baking. The time for baking depends on the quantity, type of mould etc.
