Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 250g butter
  • 200g castor sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 125g plain flour, sifted
  • 125g cake flour, sifted
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 60ml milk
  • 20g cocoa powder, mixed with 2 tbsp of water
  1. Cream the butter and sugar together till very light and fluffy (when the butter appears much lighter in colour.)
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, creaming well after each addition to ensure the egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  3. Add in the sifted flour in 3 batches, alternating between adding the milk and ending with the flour.
  4. Divide the batter equally into 2 bowls. Add the cocoa mixture into one of the bowl and using a spatula, mix well till the cocoa is evenly incorporated. Spoon 1 tbsp of white batter into a greased and lined 9 inch round tin. Allow it to spread slightly before adding another tbsp of the chocolate batter onto the middle of the white batter.
  5. Continue the same until all the batter are used up. Tap lightly or using a spatula to level the cake batter in the tin.
  6. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 170 degrees C for approximately 55 to 60 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
  7. Remove and leave to cool before slicing and serve.
