Remeber Good Old Cakes

At last, my hubby got his wish, butter cakes, for a long time, he has been waiting and hoping that I will bake this for him.

Just feel like baking and wanna made some simple cakes and I surf the net and came across this website and was tempted to bake marble butter cake. I follow the recipe and the cake was good, he tasted and he liked it and ate a huge chunk. I have noticed that most guys they loved butter cake more than other cakes

Below is the recipe from the website cut and paste. Have a try

Marble Cake
makes 1 tall 8 inch square cake – mine is 3 inches high- do not attempt to make this in an 8 inch round pan – you were warned.

330g (about 3 sticks) unsalted butter, slightly softened

240g granulated sugar (less 10 gms)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

300g cake flour

6 large eggs

2 tbsp milk (I use condensed molk)

1 tbsp cocoa powder

2 tbsp hot water

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, dissolve cocoa powder with hot water. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, on medium speed, cream butter and half of the sugar till pale and fluffy. Using a large rubber spatula, scrape bottom and sides of bowl, add rest of sugar and vanilla and beat until fully incorporated and all sugar has dissolved.

On low speed, add eggs one at a time, making sure mixture is smooth before adding the next one. After all the eggs have been incorporated, increase speed to medium and beat for 10 seconds.

Remove bowl from mixer, sift flour, baking powder and salt into bowl, and fold by hand with a large rubber spatula until almost fully incorporated. Add milk and fold until just smooth.

Add half of batter to lined cake pan, gently smoothing to the sides. Add half of remaining batter to cocoa bowl and mix gently. Add dollops of chocolate batter to pan, alternating with remaining white batter. Swirl gently in pan to create marbling effect.

Bake for 80-90 minutes, checking at the 70 minute mark with a toothpick or skewer, which, when inserted, should come out clean.

Cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing cake. Cool completely on rack.
