I grew up LOVING marble cakes, so this Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Cake is a tasty trip down memory lane for me. I’ve baked mine in a loaf tin to give the cake a little more height. This gives even more space for the marble effect which looks beautiful when sliced to serve.

If you’re after another loaf cake to try, my Cream Cheese Stuffed Apple Snickerdoodle Bread and my Orange & Vanilla Chai Spiced Tea Bread come highly recommended!

Recipe

  1. Preheat your fan oven to 180’C and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together your butter and golden caster sugar until light and fluffy, then add the 2 eggs and tablespoon of milk to loosen up the batter a little.
  3. Fold in the flour, then divide the cake batter into two.
  4. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to one half of the mix and the cocoa powder to the other half of your mix.
  5. Spoon bits of each mix into the tin and then use a skewer or cake tester to swirl the mixes together a little (but don’t overdo it!)
  6. Bake your Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Cake in the oven for around 40 minutes until the cake is beginning to shrink from the sides of the tin and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  7. Cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

I love this cake served with clotted cream as an afternoon treat, but it’s also great with a cup of coffee. You can add food colour gels to each mix to create a colourful marble cake for a bit of fun.
