The cake is one of the most loved and consumed desserts all over the world. Over the years, this fluffy and light dessert has gained a universal appeal and can be found available in almost all parts of the world in different forms and shapes. Out of the different types of cakes, marble cake is one of the loved forms which is mostly consumed as a snack alongside a cup of tea or coffee.
A marble cake is slightly different from the traditional type of cake. A traditional cake is made from a batter with a single flavour, whereas a marble cake consists of two batters with two different flavours. A traditional marble cake will usually be made from chocolate and vanilla batter except for including strawberry or other flavours as per need.
Including two batters with different flavours gives the cake a marble-like texture in its appearance. Hence, the name marble cake is designated to this type. In this recipe, we will be making a traditional marble cake with chocolate and vanilla flavour which can be savoured during any part of the day.
For preparing our marble cake, we will use Aashirvaad Superior MP Atta to create our different batters. We are selecting this range of aashirvaad atta since it is made from whole wheat grains with a 100% purity of wheat flour. This selection of atta will create a more nutritious batter for our marble cake.
- 1 cup Aashirvaad Superior MP Atta
- ½ cup Yoghurt
- ¼ cup Oil
- ½ cup Sugar (powdered)
- ¼ cup Milk
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- ½ tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tbsp Chocolate (chopped)
- 1 tbsp Chocolate Syrup
- ½ tsp Salt
For the vanilla batter, add 6 tsp oil, ¼ powdered sugar and ¼ cup yoghurt to a bowl and whisk it well. Keep a strainer above the bowl and add ½ cup aashirvaad atta, ½ tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp baking soda and ¼ tsp salt. Strain this atta mixture into the bowl and add 6 tsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract to the mixture.
Mix well until a soft and silky looking batter is formed. For the chocolate batter, add 6 tsp oil, ¼ powdered sugar and ¼ cup yoghurt to a bowl. Now add 1 tbsp chopped chocolate and 1 tbsp chocolate syrup and mix well. Keep a strainer above the bowl and add 1/3 cup aashirvaad atta, ½ tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp baking soda and ¼ tsp salt. Strain this atta mixture into the bowl and add 6 tsp milk to the mixture.
Mix well to form the same kind of batter as the first one. Take a baking pan and apply oil all over it. Take 2 tbsp of vanilla batter and add to it, then add 2 tbsp of chocolate batter and add on top of the first one. Repeat this process alternately for each batter.
Now take a spoon and use the lower end of it to move it zig-zag through the batter, this will give a marble-like pattern to the mix. Now bake this batter at 180 degrees Celsius for about 40 mins till the cake rises. Cut the baked loaf into slices to serve.
