Marble Cake

KF, one of my friends I know through MSNing did a delicious Marble Cake (one of my favourite) and I knew I had to try to do it. If you could see it, you would love the marble effect on her cake. As you can see, my marble effect is kind of weird. Eva, another friend I know through MSNing said she could see numbers in my cake (shown on the bottom picture). Maybe, the cake is trying to give me numbers to buy lottery. Can you see the numbers?

If you can see the number, went to buy lottery and strike it, remember to buy my ingredients so I can bake some more. *giggle* If you don't know what to buy, there's a donation button on my main page. Don't be shy. You can click on that, send me the money and I'll do the buying myself. LOLz.

Enough of my nonsense. Here's how you can make your own numbered Marble Cake. Try your luck and hope you strike big! *wink*

  • 50g Shortening
  • 50 Butter
  • 120g Cake Flour
  • 120g Sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 20g Milk
Coco Mixture:
  • 10g Cocoa Powder
  • 1 g Baking Soda
  • 25g Hot Water
How to do it:
  1. Preheat oven.
  2. Mix the coco mixture and set aside.
  3. Beat shortening and butter till soft.
  4. Shift in flour and continue beating.
  5. Beat till flour and butter are well mixed and fluffy.
  6. Add sugar and salt.
  7. Mix well over medium speed.
  8. Add beaten eggs over 3 times, mixing well each time before adding.
  9. Add milk gradually and beat over low speed till sugar dissolved. This will be the white batter.
  10. Remove 150g batter and mix well with coco mixture for the dark batter.
  11. Take turns in pouring the batter.
  12. Pour white batter followed by dark batter and so on till all batter are used up.
  13. Then use a chopstick to slightly stir to create patten.
  14. Bake at 160C for 55 minutes or do the toothpick test.
