Marble Cake

Marble cake gets its name because of the swirly effect created by the two colored batter. A very light delicious cake that takes hardly any time to make, can be a great accompaniment for teatime.

Ingredients
All purpose flour: 1 cup
Eggs: 2
Unsalted butter : 1/2 cup or 1 stick
Sugar: 1 cup
Vanilla essence: 1 teaspoon
Cocoa powder: 1 tablespoon
Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
Milk: 1/4 cup

Beat the butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one by one and beat well until ivory. Add milk, vanilla essence and beat well. Meanwhile sieve the all purpose flour and baking powder well. Slowly add the flour in small portions and mix well into a very smooth batter. Butter a baking dish and pour 3/4 of the batter into this dish. Add cocoa powder to the remaining batter and mix well.
Now gently pour the cocoa batter and make swirls to give the marble effect.

Preheat the oven at 350° F and bake until center comes out clean. Slice after the cake is completely cooled down and serve these spongy bites.
