Marble Cake with Real Chocolate

My every so sweet marble cake. The reason why its sweeter is because I add real chocolate to my chocolate mixture. It always turns out lovely and you can really taste the chocolate in the cake.

I also love this recipe because I can throw all the ingredients into one bowl and its easy as pie.



225g Butter

225g Self-Raising Flour

225g Caster Sugar


3 Tablespoons Milk

1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder (You might need more)

5 pieces Dairy Milk Chocolate (Other chocolate works)


Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas Mark 4. Line a cake tin with baking parchment.

This is the easy part. Measure out all of the ingredients except for the cocoa powder and chocolate

Mix throughly for 2 minutes until the mixture is well mixed. If you want to mix it by hand, Cream the butter and sugar together and then add the eggs flour and vanilla extract. Mix throughly.

Melt the chocolate in a microwave enough until the mixture becomes running. If you want to be clever then you can melt it over the saucepan but I’m a student and I don’t trust myself with that method.

Once the chocolate is melted pour 2-3 wooden spoons of cake mixture into the bowl with the chocolate. Add the cocoa powder and mix until all ingredients are mixed properly.


When both mixtures are ready. Take two spoons and use one for the vanilla cake mixture and the other for the chocolate. Start by putting one spoon of vanilla into the cake tin and then add one spoon of chocolate cake mix into the cake tin. Continue this until all the mixture is gone.

Place in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minute or until a knife comes out clean.

Let Cool and Enjoy.
