Sunday Baking

I have fond memories of visiting my Grandparents on Sundays. We did not live that close by, so it was always nice to see them occasionally. My Grandmother was a very talented cook and we were always spoiled! Somehow I still find it special to have a nice meal and a homemade cake or any dessert on Sundays. Of course that doesn’t happen every Sunday here, I also like to relax a bit;)  The Swiss Marble Cake is just perfect. Easy, quick, simple and delicious! All time favorite!

Swiss Marble Cake

125g          butter, soft

3                 eggs

125g           sugar

1 pinch      sea salt

1/2 tblsp   vanilla sugar or vanilla extract

150ml        milk

250g          unbleached flour

1 tblsp       baking powder

3-4 tblsp  chocolate powder

1-2 tblsp  milk

Preheat oven to 350F/180C. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream butter, beat in eggs, sugar and salt. Add vanilla and milk, mix well. Sift flour, add baking powder and stir into wet ingredients until blended

Spoon half of the mixture into prepared pan. In remaining mixture, add chocolate powder and milk, mix well. Spoon over vanilla batter. With a fork make twirling motions through the batter for marble look.

Bake for 45 minutes on lower rack, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean.

Store in refrigerator for up to a week.


Happy Sunday!
