Good old-fashioned marble cake

I’ve been feeling very nostalgic recently. Well, since a young friend of mine told me she was making marble cake for a school assignment, I couldn’t get it out of my head and the craving has been upon me to give it a go. It’s the kind of cake that you eat with a cup of tea or coffee, because it’s quite a simple, plain cake…that’s why I gave it a bit of a twist, ie. I cooked it in a Bundt tin and gave it lots of chocolate love.

This recipe is made using a small Bundt tin. Or you could use a 15cm/6in round tin and cook a little longer.
marble Bundt cake
175g self raising flour
125g softened butter
125g caster sugar
2 eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
1tbsp milk
50g dark chocolate melted
1tsp cocoa powder
100g melted dark or milk chocolate
100g white chocolate

Turn your oven on to 150C.Butter up your Bundt tin. Place flour, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk and beat well for three or four minutes. Plop half of the mixture randomly around the Bundt tin leaving gaps for the chocolate mixture. With the other half, beat in the melted dark chocolate and cocoa powder and then fill the gaps in the tin between the vanilla mixture. With a spoon swirl the two batters together just enough to get a marble pattern. Bake in the oven for 30-35 mins or until a skewer when inserted comes away clean. When cooled,tip out of tin and drizzle the two melted chocolates on top.
