Marble Butter Cake

This is an easy to bake marble butter cake from Florence which I have bookmarked to do for Bake Along Theme - Marbled Butter Cake but didn't managed to do.
The cake is very fragrant especially with the rum, cocoa powder and orange zest which is added.
Recipe Source - Do What I like

[use a 8" x 4" loaf pan]
100 gm butter - room temperature
80 gm castor sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla essence or 1 tsp rum
2 tsp orange zest for tangy flavour [optional]
2 eggs - room temperature
2 tbsp milk
100 gm cake flour
30 gm corn starch
1 tsp baking powder

10 gm cocoa powder
5 gm icing sugar
2 tbsp warm milk

  1. Line a loaf pan with baking paper [I used a non stick baking pan].  Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.
  2. Sieve cocoa powder and icing sugar, then stir in the milk to get a smooth chocolate paste.  Set aside.
  3. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla essence/rum and salt with electric egg beater till light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time till well combined. 
     Stir in the milk.
  5. Cream in the sieved flour mixture (cake flour, corn starch and baking powder) till smooth and well combined. I use my electric egg beater at lowest speed to do this part.
  6. Divide batter into 2 portions and stir the chocolate paste into one of the portion.
  7. Spoon the butter batter and chocolate batter alternatively into the loaf pan
  8. Bake at 170 degrees C for 40- 45 minutes or till cooked.
  9. Remove cake to cool on wire rack.

Kimmy I love this type of butter cake. Buttery, chocolaty and with orangey aroma too. I see that this is a small recipe and is perfect because I happen to have a small loaf pan. I really feel like baking this cake!

Kimmy said...

Hi Victoria, yes sometimes we do miss something good and as evergreen as a marble cake.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong,I like to try Florence's cake recipes cos' the portion in small and many can be baked in a loaf pan. Easy slicing too.

Hi Anonymous, I supposed you can substitute the cocoa powder with flour for normal butter cake.

I have a weakness for butter cake. When I bake them I have to eat them, which of course is bad for my waistline!!! But I am really tempted to make this cake...

Susanne Ng said...

Who can resist a fragrant marble butter cake? Not I for sure! Love the marbling which makes the cake looks like moo moo prints.
