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
1 pinch sea salt
1/2 tblsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
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.
