Day 13 – A Picture of your favorite Sweets
When I visited my grandmother at the weekend I made that actually first marble cake in my entire life (shocking, I know!). I’ve made plenty of cake, but never the one I’ve loved so much since I was a child…
And so that this post isn’t all useless, I’ll write down the recipe for the marble cake above for you, too. It’s nothing special, but I think it might be quite useful.
Marble Cake for a Bundt Form (or some other sort of ring-shaped cake pan) or Breadpan
250g soft butter
1 pinch of salt
1 sachet vanilla sugar ( or real vanilla, but then you’ll need less)
3 tbs baking powder
150g crème fraîche
2 tbs cocoa
50g dark chocolate (coarsly grated)
3 tbs milk
butter and breadcrumbs for the pan
1. Stir the butter until creamy, then add salt, sugar and vanilla and mix in the eggs. Mix flour and baking powder and add it to the dough, together with the crème fraîche. Halve the dough and mix one half with cocoa, grated chocolate and milk.
2. Put the light dough on the pan’s base (which should be greased and crumbed) evenly and put the dark half on top. Marble the layers with a fork.
3. Bake with 175°C (ca. 350°F) for one hour. Let the cake cool for ten minutes before turning out the cake.
4. Enjoy the cake! It’s best still warm and with a glass of cool milk.
