Butter Marble Cake

This is actually another plain butter cake recipe....which my hubby adored. But i wanted to make him something different, so i added chocolate this time to give it a touch of sophistication. But somehow, i added too much chocolate (i added nearly 80g, which is left in my fridge) and it made the cake looks more like chocolate cake...haha! Luckily my hubby took 3 slices straight....and yet he prefers plain ones.....:( At the end, it's my daughter's favourite now! The texture is good....soft and its not sweet.... It really goes well with a cup of coffee.....that's definetely for me!

2 cups Cake flour
1 tbsp Baking powder
1/2tsp salt
3/4 cup Butter
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 cup Sugar
3 Egg yolks (Size B)
2/3 cup UHT Full cream milk

3 Egg whites
1/4tsp Cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
45g unsweetened baking chocolate (melted)
**It can be replaced with coffee paste (1/2tbsp coffee melted in 1/2tbsp hot water)

~ Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.
~ Beat (A) butter, sugar and vanilla essense until light and fluffy.
~ Add in egg yolks one at a time
~ Fold in flour and milk alternately (always begin and end with flour). Set aside
~ In another bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and sugar till stiff but not dry.
~ Then fold into egg yolks mixture (A)
~ Separate 3/4 or 1/2 of mixture and add in melted chocolate.
~ In a greased 9" round pan, pour the plain batter and then follow by the chocolate batter.
~ Swirl for marble effect.
~ Bake for 30mins at 180C


  1. can i replace cake flour wit self raising flour or plain four?

  2. Hi Ean, you can replace with plain flour or all purpose flour but not self-raising flour, because there is kind of mixture of flour and baking powder in it.
