Marble cakes reminds me of my childhood when my mum used to bake a cake without a oven that to in pressure cooker . They were the fluffiest , softest , yummiest cakes from my memory lane . I learnt cooking from her and still call her to take tips . She still thinks I need a lot of lessons but when she hears about my blog from my friends and family I know she is always proud within . This marble cake recipe is from my mums kitchen , I always feel her cakes were best but I still try to match up with her . CHEERS to my Mum !
Ingredients : 1 & 1/4 cup refined flour, 100 g unsalted butter , 1 & 1/4 cup powdered brown sugar, 2 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence , 2 large eggs , 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda . https://nishachakraborty.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/dsc_1715.jpg
Servings : 8 slices .
Method : firstly beat the eggs sugar and butter together till they are soft and fluffy with light texture, add in the vanilla essence and mix gently . Divide the refined flour baking powder and baking soda into two portions . Mix cocoa powder in one refined flour portion. dry stuffs are ready . Now divide the butter, brown sugar and egg mixture into two equal portions and mix separately with refined flour mixture. This is the only hectic part. Once the batter is ready just grease the baking dish with butter thoroughly and dust it with refined flour . Preheat the oven at 170 degrees for 10 minutes. Now layer by layer pour in the batter on the baking tray. Trick is to pour in the white batter first and then chocolate cake batter next . Once the pouring is complete level up the baking tray and with help of finger just make a swirl on top to get a marble effect better . Bake the cake till 25 to 30 minutes. After cooling the cake a bit after baking cut into large slices and serve .
Note : If you feel your batter is slightly dry please add in a bit of milk to have a smooth flour in the batter. Be careful while adding the milk. Usage of brown sugar will give the brown texture to the brown marble cake !
