Do you love chocolate cake or are you more fond of vanilla? With this recipe you don't have to choose anymore: make a chocolate vanilla marble cake.
A delicious combination which looks spectacular. That doesn't mean it's a difficult recipe, because this cake is one of the easiest recipes I know.
You only have to make one batter which you divide over 2 bowls. One becomes your "normal" vanilla cake and the other batter will be mixed with cocoa. By then you'll only have to add the batter alternatively in the cake tin. Afterwards you swirl with your knife through the batter and then you get a marble form when the cake is baked. So no two cakes will be the same.
- You use all ingredients to room temperature, the cake becomes more airy.
- Every oven is different, check if the cake is done by punching a satay stick in the thickest part of the cake. When it comes out dry, the cake is ready and you can take it out of the oven. Otherwise you bake for another 5 minutes and you repeat the previous steps again.
- If you don't have vanilla extract? Exchange it with 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or the scrapings of 1 vanilla pod.
- Substitute cocoa with 2 tablespoons instant coffee for a marble cake with an added coffee flavor.
- You can also substitute the cocoa and hot water for 75 ml berry juice. That way you get a beautiful swirl cake with a fruit twist.
- Add 25 grams chocolate chunks in the cocoa batter bowl for an extra flavor explosion.
- By adding 25 grams of finely chopped pecans to the bowl with vanilla batter you get a nutty crispy bite.
- Wrap the cake in aluminium foil. You can store it 3 days at room temperature.
- You can freeze the cake. First wrap it in aluminium foil and afterwards in a plastic bag. You can store the cake for 3 months.
- Don’t store this cake in the refrigerator.
- blueberry cake, delicious with fresh blueberries
- Cranberry cake, a refreshing cake recipe
- raspberry chocolate cake, delicious until the last bite
- lactose free carrot cake, if you want or need to bake lactose free
It's a good taste!
