Marble Butter Cake

10.09.2013 - Today is my son 3 years 7 months birthday.  We celebrate our son's birth-date every 10th of the month.  So i thought of making him a cake instead. An old fashion Marble butter cake comes to mind. so i make this marble cake which the recipe is my old time butter cake recipe.  I just do some modification and add coco powder and done the work. It taste as good as it looks. Enjoy

  • 230g butter, softened
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 230g self-raising flour
  • 100ml fresh milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • If you want to make life easy, simply put all the ingredients (except the cocoa powder) into a food processor and whizz for 1-2 mins until smooth. 
  • If you prefer to mix by hand, beat the butter till pale yellow and added in sugar beat till double volumn. 
  • then add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold through the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
  • beat 3 eggs in a bowl, add in egg into batter gradually 8-10 times slowly to batter.  Beat and scrape and beat and scrape that is the way! :)
  • Add in shifted flour & baking powder to batter, mix well with hand mixer.
  • Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir the cocoa powder into the mixture in one of the bowls. Take 2 spoons and use them to dollop the chocolate and vanilla cake mixes into the tin alternately. 
  • Make a well, from white batter, fold in the chocolate batter in the center and wrap with white batter.  To create Marble pattern by folding 3 times only.  Or simply use a skewer and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.
  • When all the mixture has been used up (and if young kids are doing this, you’ll need to ensure the base of the tin is fairly evenly covered), tap the bottom on your work surface to ensure that there aren’t any air bubbles. 
  • Bake the cake for 45-55 mins until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool. Will keep for 3 days in an airtight container or freeze for up to 3 months.

  • To decorate, i used some left over chocolate glaze from my previous chocolate cake.
