Marble Cake

150g unsalted butter
150g caster sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
150g self raising flour
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp cocoa powder

  • Preheat oven to 180°C
  • Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Gradually beat in the eggs
  • Sieve in all but 1 tablespoon of the flour and fold into the mixture
  • Divide the mixture in half
  • Fold the vanilla essence and remaining flour into one half and the cocoa powder into the other
  • Put alternate spoonfuls of the vanilla and chocolate mixtures into a greased cake tin and bake in the oven for 1 hour.

Once cooled I like to top this cake with a chocolate buttercream icing (50g butter, 100g icing sugar, 2 tsp cocoa powder, 2 tsp warm water – cream the butter and beat in the icing sugar, dissolve the cocoa in the water and beat into the creamed mixture).
