Marble Cake with Cocoa

Making desserts is an art. And an example of this is this recipe for marble cake with cocoa . It is a homemade recipe destined to conquer our senses of taste and sight.

This sponge cake is fluffy on the palate and with an attractive appearance because its colours and shapes.

As an interior architect I have always loved the combination of colours, spaces and textures in each of the projects I work on. It’s the same with desserts so not only I enjoy the process of making them, but I can also eat them afterwards 🙂

Ingredients are like the colours a painter uses to create a painting. And each recipe is a palette of colours designed to create a work of art. Depending on the ingredients, and the amount you use, the desserts will take on one appearance or another.

In this case it is the cake itself that will be the artist, it will decide what shapes will be created inside it.

One of the curiosities of this sponge cake is that you don’t know what the inside will look like until you open it. It’s a surprise! Not knowing what the final result will be like also makes the experience of preparing this dessert fun.

Marble cake is a classic sponge cake, along with the yogurt sponge cake. Both are very easy to make. The only difference is that this sponge cake is made of two kind of batters, of which one is made of cocoa.

This contrast of flavours and colours is what gives it its appearance.

If you follow the steps of the recipe, you will soon have a small work of art in your home … but it will last very little time 🙂

Recipe for Marble Cake with Cocoa

  • Preheat the oven to 356°F ( 180°C ).
  • In a bowl, mix 125 grams of butter ( slightly melted and soft) with 225 grams of sugar. You can do this either with a whisk or an electric hand mixer.
  • Once the butter and sugar are well integrated, add 3 egg yolks and stir with a whisk until everything is well integrated.
  • Add 200 ml. of milk and continue stirring with the whisk.
  • Now gradually add 250 grams of flour and a teaspoon of baking powder. Mix everything with a whisk until there are no lumps.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the remaining egg whites with the electric hand mixer until stiff.
  •  Once the egg whites are whipped to stiff peaks, add the meringue to the mixture, in batches, and combine both mixtures with a spatula with slow folding movements, a bottom-to-top and top-to-bottom motion, until well integrated.

Separate the cake batter into two bowls

  • In one bowl put 2/3 of the mixture and in another 1/3 of the mixture, to the latter add a tablespoon of cocoa powder and stir well.
  • Spread butter over all four sides and bottom of the loaf pan, then add flour all over the butter pan. Tilt and shake so the flour adheres to the butter. Spread butter over all four sides and bottom of the loaf pan, then add flour all over the pan. Tilt and shake so the flour adheres to the butter. You do this to prevent the batter from sticking to the pan when unmolding.
  • Pour half of white batter into the loaf pan, then add all the cocoa batter and finish by adding the rest of the white batter.
  • Bake for 50 minutes. I recommend you not to open the oven door during this time. When the time is up insert a cake tester (or a knife) into the center of the marble cake to check whether it is done. If the tester comes out clean … Et voilá! Your delicious and fluffy marble cake is ready!
