Since last week, I have this sudden craving for Marble Cake. My mother used to make them, and I used to help separate the mixture into three and add the cocoa powder and colouring. When I checked my mom's recipe that I copied last week, I realised that the measurements were in oz!!! Only my mother has the old school weighing machine with the oz weight blocks. So, I had no choice but to google another recipe!
Last Saturday, I tried this recipe. Took the risk and made double batch so that I could send to Mom and MIL. The cake sorta caved in the middle, don't know why, but still is crumbly and I thought nice just like how I remembered my mom used to make them. Give it a try, won't cha.
My SRF (self-raising flour) was bad, so I substituted it with the Superfine Flour added with 2 tbsp of baking powder for each 225g of flour.
Here's the original recipe, I suggest you follow exactly:
225g butter, softened
225g caster sugar
225g self-raising flour
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder
