How to make marble cake:
The chocolate cake mixture blends in with the vanilla mixture to create a marbled effect. This looks really impressive when the first slice is cut.


8oz butter
8oz caster/superfine sugar
3 eggs
few drops of vanilla extract
10oz self raising flour sieved
3oz plain chocolate
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
- Add the eggs and the vanilla essence with a little flour.
- Fold the flour into the mixture.
- Divide the cake mixture between two bowls.
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of  hot water and add to the cake mixture in one of the bowls.
- Drop alternate spoonfuls of plain and chocolate cake mixture into a well-greased 7 inch round cake tin.
- Bake at 180 degrees C. for 45 minutes.
- Remove from tin and cool on a wire rack.
