Marble Butter Cake Recipe

One of my earliest, most vivid childhood memories was sitting at home in the evenings, waiting eagerly for the roti man to pass by; his motorcycle laden with bread, pastry, cakes and other delightful goodies. My favorite of them all - the buttery goodness of a slice of marble butter cake.

The roti man is a relic of the past, though, so I'm always experimenting with baking my own cake. Will today's recipe be the one to let me relive my childhood memories? Let's find out!

Recipe for 8" x 8" Square Size Baking Pan

Mixture A Ingredients
250g Plain Flour
6g Baking Powder

Sift Flour and Baking Powder. Set aside.

Mixture B Ingredients
350g Butter (maximum reduction to 300g)

Beat Butter till pale and fluffy. Set aside.

Mixture C Ingredients (can be replaced with Nutella)
70g Chocolate
70g Thickened Cream
1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder

Heat up Thickened Cream till slightly bubbling, pour in Chocolate and Cocoa. Stir until smoothly combine. Set aside.

Mixture D Ingredients
4 Eggs
200g Sugar

Whisk Egg and Sugar till white and smooth ribbon stage.

Preheat oven to 165°C. Line the bottom of the baking tray and grease the sides.

Add in Mixture B in small batches into Mixture D in low speed. Followed by adding in sifted flour and fold until well combined.

Separate the batter into 2 portions. Fold in Mixture C until well combined.

Chocolate Butter Cake Batter

Butter Cake Batter

Alternate drop blobs of Butter Cake Batter and Chocolate Butter Cake Batter into the baking pan.

Slightly tap the tray of the table to level out the batter. Use a angled spatula and swirl to create the marble effect. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

I totally love this recipe. It might not quite reverse the clock to twenty years ago, but it's still superb: Moist, fragrant, buttery goodness with just the right hint of chocolate. Perfect to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or tea.
