Marbled Chocolate and Vanilla Cake

Marble cake- wikipedia says this about marble cake"A marble cake is a cake with a streaked or mottled appearance achieved by very lightly blending light and dark batter.[1] It can be a mixture of vanilla and chocolate cake, in which case it is mainly vanilla, with streaks of chocolate. Other possibilities are strawberry or other fruit flavors, or (particularly in marbled coffee cakes) cinnamon and/or other spices."

I love marble cake.More than eating i actually like its look.I feel that it looks very attractive and tempting in that mix of brown and cream.The marbled effect  is awesome.I am trying the normal vanilla chocolate flavours .

Plain Flour-175g
Unsalted Butter softened-175g
Caster sugar- 175g
Eggs Beaten 3
Baking powder-1 tablespoon
Cocoa Powder-2 tablespoon
Mik-2 tablespoon
Vanilla Extract-1teaspoon
Oil or butter for greasing

Preheat the oven to 160 C.Grease a  1.5 litre /2  ¾ pint ring cake tin,preferable non stick.( I used a normal round cake tin)

Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl  and add the butter,caster sugar and eggs. Beat well until the mixture is smooth. Transfer half the mixture to a separate bowl.

Mix the cocoa powder with the milk and stir into one bowl of mixture.Add the vanilla extract to other bowl and mix evenly.    Spoon alternate tablespoons of the two mixtures into the prepared tin and swirl lightly with a palette knife for a marbled effect.

Bake in the preheated oven  for 40-50 minutes, or until risen,firm and golden brown.Leave  to cool in the tin for 10 minutes,then turn out and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Note: You may substitute caster sugar with powdered sugar.
Dust with icing or  powdered sugar before serving.
