Marble Chocolate Cake

29 July 2007

Actually I intended to make chocolate muffins. But I changed my mind last minute. Will leave the chocolate muffins to next week. Here's the recipe for the Marble Chocolate Cake. Smells and tastes really nice. :)

Ingredients (6 inch round)
116g butter, softened (I use 100g)
116g sugar (I use 100g)
100g eggs, beaten
100g flour
3g baking powder
a pinch of salt
15g milk

For the chocolate swirl:
15g cocoa powder
10g milk

1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
2. Beat butter at medium speed till creamy, add sugar and beat till light and fluffy.
3. Add eggs one small portion at a time, whisk well after each addition.
4. Gently fold in sieved flour, baking powder and salt, in 3 batches, making sure no flour gathers, alternating with 2 batches of milk.
5. Pick up a scoop of the mixture into a separate bowl, gently fold in sieved cocoa powder, then the milk.
6. Place both mixtures alternatively into baking tray, tap gently to release any air bubbles, then use a wooden pick to create swirls in the mixture.
7. Bake at 170C for about 20-25 minutes until the top is golden.

  3. hi,
    i have make this cake just now.... but the centre sink while cooling... & when i cut the cake.. i realised the centre is not cook. know where have i gone wrong?? :(


  4. Hi elaine, so sorry to hear that. I think there are several reasons why cakes sink, like too much baking powder, overcreaming or opening the door of the oven too early and causing the oven temperature to drop. Make sure you weigh your ingredients correctly and set oven at the correct temperature.

    If the outside of the cake is cooked/browned before the centre is cooked, perhaps your oven temperature is too high. Can lower the temp a bit. Hope you can succeed the next time!

  5. Hi 100grams egg? How many egg? Just get to know yr blog m planning to try out this recipe. Tks

    1. Hi, it's 2 medium-sized eggs. Happy baking!
