Step 1:

Line a 24 cm cake pan with parchment paper and brush with butter.

Step 2:

Sift together 250 grams of flour and 5 grams (1 teaspoon) of baking powder.

Step 3:

Add a pinch of salt and 250 grams of granulated sugar. In a separate bowl, mix 3 eggs, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 150 ml of milk and 150 grams of melted butter.

Step 4:

Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix using a whisk just until combined. It takes less than a minute to mix the batter.

Step 5:

Remove 1/3 of the cake batter and place in a separate bowl. Add 25 grams of cocoa powder and 30 ml of milk. Mix just until combined.

Step 6:

Pour one ladle of the vanilla batter into the center of the cake pan. Use a small ladle or an ice cream scoop to pour the chocolate batter in the center of the vanilla batter, and continue until you’ve used up all your batter.

Step 7:

Bake at 180°C for 35-40 minutes, until a skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 8:

Remove from the oven, cool slightly, unmold, invert, remove the parchment paper and cool completely on a rack.

Step 9:

Serve as is with tea or coffee. We love baking marbled cakes, they are beautiful and easy to make. Visit VideoCulinary to find a chocolate marble pound cake.
