Marble Cake

The Homemade Marble Cake Recipe Chocolate and orange cake mixtures are swirled together to make this spectacular marble-effect cake. This cake is lots of fun to make and you can change your swirling patterns every time you make it! Serve it cold or hot, with custard or whipped cream. Delicious! I dedicated this marble cake to my Esther Spross from Hervey Bay Queensland Australia. Serve: 25

Marble Cake
6 oz (175 g) butter (softened)
1 cup (175 g) sugar
1½ cups (175 g) self-rising flour
3 large eggs
Grated zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp orange juice
2 tbsp cocoa powder

Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Grease and line the bottom of an 8” (20 cm) square cake pan with parchment paper to prevent the cake from sticking.

Place all the ingredients except the cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer or whisk, beat them all together until mixed and smooth.

Divide the mixture in half. Place large spoonfuls of one half of the mixture into the pan in each of the four corners and in the middle. Leave space between each spoonful.

Sift the cocoa powder over the remaining mixture in the bowl and mix together until combined. Spoon the chocolate mixture into the spaces in the cake pan.

Gently drag a round-bladed knife through the mixtures to create a swirl effect with the brown and white mixtures. Don’t overdo it, or you will mix the two colors together completely.

Bake the cake for 30 minutes, until well risen and springy. Allow it to cool in the pan, then remove it, and peel off the parchment paper. Cut it into 25 squares with a sharp knife.

Experiment by flavoring the cake with a teaspoon of vanilla or peppermint extract instead of orange.
