Marble Cake

Marble cake is my husband's favourite and I got this recipe from easy cooking and he was totally amazed at how soft this cake was, as he used to think only cake with eggs can be soft. All my friends too loved it and were amazed at how soft this cake has turned out and no one could believe it was eggless! Now I make this cake almost every other week.

  • 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 3 tbsp Condensed Milk
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 3/4 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp Hot water

   1) In a bowl mix the All purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda.
   2) In another bowl add the butter, condensed milk, vanilla essence, sugar and milk and mix well. Add these to the All purpose flour mixture and mix everything well to form a smooth batter.(No need to worry if there are little amounts of lumps in the batter.)
   3) Take the hot water in a small bowl and add the cocoa powder and mix well so that it becomes a thick paste. Now add 1/4 of the batter to the cocoa paste and mix well.
   4) Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a cake tin or loaf pan with butter and flour or use a parchment paper. Pour the vanilla batter into the greased tin as shown below.

   5) Now pour the cocoa batter along the middle and make marble like designs using a fork. (But don't overdo the designs. It has to be a gentle zig zag like pattern with the fork.)

   6) Now bake the cake at 350F for 35-20 min or till a knife inserted comes out clean.
   7) Allow the cake to completely cool and then slice and serve!

Suggestions/ Notes
  1. The original recipe calls for orange zest but I skipped that as we all like only plain marble cake.
  2. You may replace condensed milk with milk powder as in the original recipe. I didn't have milk powder so I used condensed milk instead and since we all love this texture, I didn't try it with milk powder again.
