Marble Cake


The end of the road to my baking course, marble cake ended it on a high note (Creme Caramel, Lemon Buttercake & Cream Puffs). There were no doubt other desserts I made as well, but none are worthy being shared because I don't want to. I actually fumbled in taking pictures, tell me about learning and simultaneously taking picture perfect pictures? Seriously, impossible. I couldn't manage. In fact I also struggle with picturing this marble cake. Obviously then as you can see, visuals are not the best. Yet, I think they are a fair bit of justice for sharing. Marble cake is nothing more, nothing less except a butter cake mixture which is divided into two portions. One will remain as it is, the other will be mixed with cocoa powder. Thereafter you have to swirl both together, or call in layering if you want to and the end result is a contrast between yellow and brown hue marble cake. Super moist and super crumbly for its buttery texture and vanilla scent.

Ingredients
2 yolks
70g sugar (first portion)
45ml milkr
150g melted butter
100g soft/cake flour
1/4 tbsp baking powder
2 egg whites
70g sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla

Method
Preheat oven to 175C and line a baking pan with butter.
Whisk yolks with first sugar (first portion as stated above) until light and fluffy.
Add milk and cooled down melted butter.
Sift flour with baking powder and fold into the yolk sugar mixture.
Whisk egg whites with second sugar to form a glossy peak.
Fold it gently into flour-yolk mixture.
Take about 1/3 of this batter, add cocoa powder and gently mix/stir. 
Put it in a piping bag and spread into a circular mode in the prepared baking pan.
Add vanilla to the other 2/3 and spoon alternately over the cocoa batter in the same pan.
Bake at 175C until cake is cooked.
 Let it cool down before slicing.
