I always think that orange goes well with chocolate.So i tried adding orange to my marble cake recipe.And i was right! ;)
I am using the new pan(consist of 9 mini loafs) i bought from my recent trip to KL.Love it to bits!
- 9" by 9" cake tin,roughly aroung 20 decent slices or 10 mini loafs
You will need:
- 250g flour
- 250g butter
- 220g sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon orange essence(add 1/2 more if you prefer a stronger orange taste.)
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 80ml orange juice
- Mix cocoa powder with 3 tbsp of warm water in a medium size bowl to form a paste.
- Sift flour and baking powder.
- Cream butter and sugar till pale and creamy.
- Add eggs,one at a time.
- Add juice and orange essence.
- Fold in flour in 3 batches,do not over mix.
- Scoop 1/3 of the batter into the bowl of cocoa paste and mix well,do not over mix.
- Sccop at orange batter onto greased(recommended) pan or lined cake tin,followed by cocoa batter and repeat till all batter are used.
- Lightly stir with chopstick to create swirls.
- Shake the pan/tin a little to even out the batter.
Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C for 25-30 minutes or till cooked.
Leave in tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool on rack.
Serve when cooled.
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.
