Marble Cake


A good marble cake to me has to be soft,fluffy,not too sweet.When i just bgt my HappyCall Pan,Crissie gave me a list of recipes using HCP.This is one of the recipe that is on my to make list.

I had done minor adjustments to the original recipe,according to my preferred taste and had also added more details on how to fill the pan/tin.This is really easy to make and yummy,so a must try!I am using HappyCall Pan to make this.You can use an oven to bake it as well.

Makes:
  • Ocher Deeper Pan size ( 9" by 9" cake tin,roughly aroung 20 decent slices)

You will need:
  • 250g flour
  • 250g butter
  • 220g sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 60ml milk

The Preparation:
  1. Mix cocoa powder with 3 tbsp of warm water in a medium size bowl to form a paste.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder.
  3. Cream butter and sugar till pale and creamy.
  4. Add eggs,one at a time.
  5. Add milk and vanilla essence.
  6. Fold in flour in 3 batches,do not over mix.
  7. Scoop 1/3 of the batter into the bowl of cocoa paste and mix well,do not over mix.
  8. Scoop a spoonful of plain batter onto greased(recommended) pan or lined cake tin,followed by cocoa batter and repeat till all batter are used.
  9. Lightly stir with chopstick to create swirls.
  10. Shake the pan/tin a little to even out the batter.

The Cooking/Baking:

HappyCall Pan
  1. Cook at very low heat,shifting the pan around for every 3-5 minutes.(for even texture)
  2. After about 15 minutes,open the lid to check if the top is no longer moist,otherwise continue to cook till so.
  3. Flip the pan and shift it around for another 10 minutes.
  4. Flip the pan back and check if the cake is done.
  5. Once done,transfer onto cooling rack carefully.
  6. Serve when cooled.
Oven
  1. Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 25-30 minutes or till cooked.
  2. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool on rack.
  3. Serve when cooled.
Tips:
  • To know if your cake is cooked thoroughly or not,insert a skewer or satay stick onto the centre.If it comes out clean,it is done.
  • Personally i prefer to line my tin with baking paper than grease it as it is easier to remove the cake when done.
  • Do not remove immediately from tin as the cake might break.
  • Do not slice cake when it is hot.*The cake is very fragile when it is hot.
  • Different mixers and ovens will differ in mixing and cooking time.
