This is a delicious cake to make and a real crowd pleaser. It was submitted by one of our lovely BakingMad.com members.  

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4) and grease a a large loaf tin (2lb).

  2. Make the chocolate sponge by beating the butter and caster sugar until light and creamy.  

  3. Add one egg and stir until smooth, do the same with the second egg.

  4. Sieve the flour and the cocoa powder into the mixture, add the milk and beat together until smooth.

  5. Make the vanilla mixture in a separate bowl using the same method but substituting the cocoa powder for the vanilla extract.

  6. Add some of the chocolate mixture to the tin, followed by the vanilla mixture and then the remaining chocolate mixture and the remaining vanilla mixture. Mix the two mixtures together slightly just so that the mixture is swirled. Bake in the oven for 55 minutes.

    I just made this today and found that it tasted exactly like my late grandma's marble cake! I was so happy to find it because no one in the family has my grandma's recipe any more. Thank you Eric!!
