Last year I posted a wonderful sponge cake recipe that I really enjoyed. That sponge cake recipe had a certain milkiness that I liked. Following along those same lines this year I decided to post a marble cake.
The Different Colours in a Marble Cake
My first memories of marble cake was as a child growing up. They would be cut into neat rectangular blocks and placed in little clear plastic bags. There would be many different colours: some pink and blue, while others would have lovely swirls of green and red. I must say those colourful cake pieces really intrigued me.
Any how the marble cake recipe is simple really; just don’t mix the colours too much. I hope you enjoy it.
With that being said here’s Marble cake.
Marble Cake Recipe
3/4 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon almond essence
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 teaspoon red liquid food colouring
4 teaspoon green liquid food colouring
(The red colouring we had was not so bright so the mixture looked more pink).
Bake in a preheated oven 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes then transfer to cooling rack.
Note: You may frost your cake if you like.
More recipes to come. Ah gone!
