Marble Cake


Happy new year 2010!! I am posting this marble cake as the very first post for 2010. This is the cake that I baked on New year eve. Every year, I spent my new year eve and counting down at home , of course watching the "live" TV program from channel 5. I am not outgoing person and this is how I usually spend my 31 Dec night. But it is a little bit different for this year. Yeah, I did baking on new year eve , that's awesome. It might sound crazy for those outgoing type ppl and one of my friends ask surprisingly "Baking at home on 31 Dec????" lol Anyway, I love to bake and it is completely fine with me, even happier after seeing my freshly baked cake.


Here is the recipe and it is adapted from little Corner of Mine.


Ingredients:

(A)
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup corn oil (or vegetable oil)
1 large egg
1/4 cup milk

(B)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of cake flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder


(C)
80 grams of baking chocolate


Method:

  1. Mix and sift all the ingredients (B) in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate in a stainless steel bowl (placed over a sauce pan of simmering water)
  3. Hand whisk together (A). Add in (B), mix until well blended.
  4. Take out 1 cup of the batter and place in another small bowl. Add in melted chocolate and stir with spoon to combine.
  5. Marbling effect: Place a scoop of the white batter in the middle of the pan. On top of the white batter, add some of the dark batter in the middle. Then alternate with white and dark until all the batters are finished.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes in 180 degree C preheated oven.
  7. Cool it completely on wire rack and ready to serve.
