I was supposed to make Marble Cake instead of the cookies last Monday. So yesterday, since my DH's frens were coming over, I decided why not bake it. And I did.
I got back from work, wash up and stuff and then started to make the cake. I found this recipe from my mum's cook jotterbook. Apparently she got it from somewhere else but do not really know who the originator was.
After the cake has been sliced ..
This cake is rather simple to make. The ingredients for the Marble Cake are not that many and it is as follows:-
250g castor sugar
1 tbsp ovalette
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp chocolate emulco
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 170C.
Grease a tin with softened butter.
Melt butter and leave to cool.
Sift flour into a bowl.
Combine sugar, eggs and ovalette and flour and beat for about 10 mins.
Put in vanilla essence and gradually pour in the melted butter whilst continue beating the mixture.
Put half the mixture into another bowl. Mix in the chocolate emulco and cocoa powder.
To assemble put 3 tablespoons of the white mixture then 3 tablespoons of choc mixture over the white one.
When you have used half of the mixture reduce to 2 tablespoons then reduce to 1 tablespoon.
Bake for 40 mins or until cooked.
Allow cake to cool in the tin for abt 10 mins before turning it out to cool on a wire tray.
