MMmm now whats in this pretty cake tin i wonder.. er could it be cake!!!..
found a great recipe before on the good food website..
chocolate and vanilla marble cake..
now bear with me on this .. my 4 year old was helping me so the marble effect is not so marbley!!.. and i think my cake tin was to large so it didn't rise as much but instead was more of a marble slab..but hey ho these things happen ..
see how its been destroyed though by the hubby and boys who say its deeeeelicious (their words not mind!) so it cant be to bad!!!
and i got to use my new oven glove that i bought from B&M's the other day its so sweet!!!
225 g butter, at room temperature
225 g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
225 g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
50 ml milk
50 g cocoa powder, sifted
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Butter and flour the sides of a 20cm cake tin and line the base with greaseproof paper.
2. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in an electric food mixer until soft. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
3. Whisk the eggs and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Gradually add the eggs to the butter mixture, beating all the time. Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold in gently to mix, then add the milk and mix gently to combine.
4. Tip half of the cake mixture into another large bowl and, into this bowl, fold in the sifted cocoa powder.
5. Place the cake mixtures into the prepared tin by alternating spoonfuls of the vanilla batter with the chocolate batter, then with a skewer or similar implement, gently draw swirls through the cake mixture to ‘marblise’ it. Don’t overmix or you won’t have that wonderful marble effect. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
6. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack and allow to cool before serving.
perhaps if you have a go at making this you could send me your piccies of it so I know how it is suppose to look like!!!
