MARBLE CAKE



This cake is for that time when you  can't decide whether you want to make a chocolate cake or a vanilla cake, just  combine the two and make a Marble Cake.It is the super moist, rich, buttery, and loaded with deep chocolate flavour. The marbling effect is created by placing the vanilla and chocolate cake batters  in a cake pan, and then running a skewer or knife (do not stir) through the two batters to give it a marble effect. I personally prefer serving  this cake plain as I want everyone to see the Marbling  effect.But you can dust the top with powdered sugar or cocoa powder or cover with a Chocolate Ganache.

I baked my marble cake with round cake pan...you can use any regular cake pan according to your choice.

INGREDIENTS 
All-purpose flour or Maida-1 1/2 Cups

Baking powder-1.5tsp

Granuled sugar-1 cup

Butter (softened  not melted)-1/2 cup +1 tsp

Eggs-2 (if you want to avoid  egg..then you can use
1 small tin (200ml) condensed milk.

Vanilla essence -1tsp

Milk-3/4cup

Cocoa powder-1/4cup

Baking soda -1 pinch


METHOD 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 175 C degree  for 10 minutes.

Grease a  9 inch round cake  pan with 1tsp  oil.

Take a mixing bowl, combine   flour ,baking powder, and baking soda...mix well and set aside.

Take a  another bowl ,add  butter and sugar..mix until creamy...add eggs(if you use condensed milk. .then add  condensed  milk) ..Add vanilla essence  and milk...mix until a creamy texture.

Add flour mixture into this  creamy mixture slowly...mix  until smooth.

 Reserve 1/2 cup batter; pour the remainder white  batter  into the greased pan.

Stir cocoa into the 1/2 cup reserved batter and mix well using a fork.

Drop by spoonfuls over top of white batter.

Using a knife, swirl the cocoa batter into the white batter to incorporate it in a marble effect.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes,  or Insert a toothpick to check. .if the inserted toothpick comes out clean then it is done

Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes..cut into slices..then serve and enjoy.
             




 If you do not have both OTG or Microwave with onvection Mode..then you do not need to be worried. .you can  bake it in Pressure cooker also.

FOR BAKING IN PRESSURE COOKER


Use a pressure cooker that's at least 3 litres, but 5 litres is a good size  what I would recommend.

Remove the gasket (the rubber insulation thing) on the lid of your pressure cooker. This is an important step. You also do NOT need the whistle.


My pressure cooker came with a stand that goes at the bottom of the cooker pan. It distributes heat more evenly and is especially useful when baking in the pressure cooker. If you don't have, try to find a substitute. Maybe a small, thick steel plate would do the job as well.

It's better not to have the cake pan touch the bottom of the pressure cooker directly since that may cause the bottom of the cake to cook more rapidly.


you need to pre-heat the pressure cooker. For this, just place the lid (without gasket) on the pressure cooker (which should contain no water) and cook on high heat for 2 mins.


 Now, keep the flame in low and place the cake pan filled with cake batter carefully inside the cooker. Close the cooker without gasket and weight,... cook for 45 minutes to be done.


Check it after 45 minutes by inserting a knife or toothpick in the centre of the batter, if it comes out clean, means it’s done, otherwise cook for some more time..but keep checking.
