Today’s marble cake is a way to have the best of both worlds – vanilla and chocolate! Why choose when you can have both?

Though this recipe took a few hits which are best left forgotten, I have found THE perfect recipe…not too crumbly, not too buttery and not super dense.

As with all my recipes, this cake can be made with simple ingredients which you probably already have in your pantry. Also the best part is both flavors come from the same batter so it can be very quick to whip up.

Frosting or no frosting is left to you! A cake without frosting goes great with a cup of tea or coffee. Or a marble cake made with your favorite chocolate frosting makes an extra delicious birthday cake!

So try this fun, simple and beautiful marble cake swirled with contrasting flavors of chocolate and vanilla and let me know what you think!

Remember…

To line the loaf tin, cut parchment paper to fit the bottom and sides separately. With a little bit butter, stick the parchment paper to the baking tin so it is easy to remove the cake right out of the pan.

To get that beautiful marble effect on the cake, drop spoonfuls of batter onto the baking tin, alternating between vanilla and chocolate. Shake the tin lightly. Then using a skewer, make random swirls on the batter to get a marbled effect but don’t overdo it. Make sure the skewer reaches the bottom otherwise you will have the swirls only on the top layer.
