Cynthia’s Marble Cake

Makes 8 portions

130 g All Purpose Flour
10 g Baking Powder
57 g Oil
150 g Sugar
2 Eggs
57 ml Milk
15g Cocoa Powder

Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).

In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar and eggs, until pale and creamy. Add in the milk, and stir to combine. Next add in the oil and mix in. Add the flour along with the baking powder, and fold into the batter using a spatula.

Divide the batter into two equal portions. Into one portion, add the cocoa powder and mix to combine.

Grease your loaf pan with oil, then pour in the batters, alernating with each, to create a pattern like a checkerboard. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding the opposite color inside each section. Take a knife and drag it across the cake creating swirls in the batter

Bake at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees F) for around 35-40 minutes checking that a knife comes out clean from the center before removing from the oven. Cool on a wire rack and serve in nice, thick slices!
