Vanilla and Chocolate Marble cake


Marble cake was in my baking to-do list for a long time.It was so easy to make than I thought and I got the swirls reasonably good for the first time:-)

Ive taken this recipe from allrecipes.com and made some changes according to the reviews.

Ingredients:

All purpose Flour - 2 cups

Baking powder - 2 tsp

Salt - 1/4 tsp

Sugar - 1 1/3 cup

Cocoa Powder - 2tbsp

Butter - 1/2 cup(softened at room temperature)

Vanilla - 1tsp

Eggs - 2

Milk - 1 cup


Method :

Grease and flour an 8 inch round pan.

Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.

In a bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.Add eggs one by one and beat until fluffy.

Add the vanilla essence.

In another bowl mix the flour,salt,baking powder.

Add a small amount of dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.Gradually add little bit of milk and fold.Alternate between the flour mixture and milk and fold.

Separate into two parts.Mix the cocoa powder with melted butter and add  to one part of the flour mixture.



Put one spoon of vanilla mixture in the center of the prepared pan.Now add 1 spoon of cocoa mixture on top of the vanilla mixture.

Alternate between vanilla and cocoa.Finally swirl the top with a knife until you get a marble effect.Do not overdo it because you might lose the definition of either vanilla or cocoa mixture.


Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes and check by inserting a tester in the middle.If it comes out with a little bit of crumb then the cake is done.
