I have very sweet memories of Marble cake thanks to my Mum’s epic packed lunches at school. No, said cake wasn’t always home baked but it WAS always my favourite treat she could give us and I can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting to make my own.
This cake is incredibly moorish thanks to the light, zesty orange sponge which perfectly compliments the rich chocolate. The texture and taste reminds me a little of a Madeira cake….because I could eat one slice after another! It’s the perfect tea time treat.
The secret to create the all important marble effect is as easy as you think, just don’t over mix and dollop each sponge mixture alternatively into your loaf tin. See the recipe below:
