Chef Guntas took to her Instagram to share the recipe and wrote alongside, "Just look at those beautiful swirls! Marble cake may usually look complicated but it is so easy to make and this recipe is an absolute game changer!" So, without much ado, let's take a look at the recipe:
Marble Cake Recipe: How To Make Marble Cake
- All Purpose Flour - 2 & 1/2 cup
- Baking Powder - 2 tsp
- Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
- Salt - 1/2 tsp
- Castor Sugar - 1 & 1/3 cup
- Cocoa Powder (unsweetened) - 4 tbsp
- Vegetable Oil - 1/2 cup
- Yogurt (thick)- 1 cup
- Milk - 1/2 cup
- Hot Water - 2 tbsp
- Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
- First, whisk together yogurt, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, milk and sugar. Sift in the dry ingredients and fold that in. Now, in a separate bowl, dilute cocoa powder with hot water and mix half of the batter with it.
- Next, take a baking tin lined with parchment paper or a silicone tin and add the batter one at a time - alternating between the chocolate and vanilla. Swirl it around.
- Bake it at 180 degree C for 30-35 minutes or until done.
Chef Guntas also added the following tips in the caption:
- Just like any cake, don't overmix the batter. Incorporate as much air as you can. To keep the cake light and not make it dense.
- It's much easier to make sure your pans have the same amounts of cake batter if you add the spoonfuls of batter in rounds. Add a spoonful of vanilla to each pan, then a spoonful of chocolate to each pan, and repeat until you've used all your batter.
