Recipe For Chocolate Marmalade Marble Cake

I have wanted to make a marble cake for quite some time now, but every time I bake my usual cake I forget to leave out the cocoa and then I don’t feel like making a second lot of batter. Pure laziness on my behalf I know! Marble cakes look so pretty and I can remember baking them as a child and being amazed at how they always came out with the marble effect. I have seen various methods of making sure your cake looks good but when I read this recipe in my 80 recipes for your bread maker book I was impressed with the ease of getting the marble effect. I was not going to use my bread maker to bake this in as my terrine needs some loving attention as it has not been used nearly enough! I will definitely bake this again using my usual cake batter recipe to see if it comes out as nicely.

have you got a special method for baking marble cakes?

  9. I remember making marble cakes with my mom! They were always fascinating to me as well! She would always watch over me so I would not get carried away with the swirling for if I did it would become too mixed. A light cutting around with a cake spatula was all that was needed. I think you’ve put the bug in me to back one soon!!

  10. Paired with the chocolate semi-freddo and fruit this dessert makes quite a statement. I would never thought to add marmelade to the cake, but it sounds really delicious!
