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?

  1. I’ve never baked one and have always been too lazy. The marmalade in your recipe has me sold, though. Looks very good.

    1. This could become my new signature cake recipe but it will have to wait a bit – the scale was not my friend today 🙂

    1. Thank you Barb, I decided to style two recipes in one photo – and the taste combination was really good as well 🙂

  2. 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!!

    1. I am so glad I gave you a happy memory! These cakes look so good and I think I will bake one with my niece next week 🙂

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
