WHAT IS A MARBLE CAKE?

A cake with a marble pattern, the reason why it’s called a Marble Cake or Marbled Cake. Also known as the Zebra cake. A rich, moist and buttery cake made by mixing two different colors of cake batters, vanilla and chocolate, with beautiful swirls to give it a visually stunning effect resembling a marble that will appeal to kids and grown-ups alike.

Then all you need to do is scoop portions of both the batters and place them alternately into a baking pan. Finally, let’s not forget the most important part, using a skewer or a toothpick making those gorgeous swirls to give it that stunning marble effect.

If you don’t have baking paper, you can grease the baking pan with oil and dust it with flour and you be good. Speaking of ingredients, although you can substitute cocoa powder with melted chocolate for the chocolate batter, I personally feel that the unsweetened cocoa powder will make a softer, spongy and moist marble cake. For those who can’t resist the melted chocolate, you can add both these ingredients, melted chocolate and cocoa powder together as well. I will be using just the cocoa powder for this particular recipe.

Make sure to place the baking pan in a preheated oven. You are very likely to ruin your cake if you have not properly preheated the oven and all the effort you put into this recipe might go down the drain. I will be using a rectangular 7-inch cake pan for this particular recipe, although any shape cake pan can be using for this cake, its really your choice.

A QUICK TIP TO BAKE THE PERFECT MARBLE CAKE

Here’s a quick tip on how to make sure your cake is baked perfectly. Use a skewer or a toothpick and insert it into the cake all the way through to the bottom and when you pull it out it should come out clean. If any wet batter is stuck to the skewer or the toothpick, then your cake needs to be in the oven a little bit longer.

Alright now, Let’s get to the recipe now.
