Marbled cakes can be done in different ways. This is the simplest marble cake. This is actually a loaf cake that you can try with more butter if you wish. This comes so nice and soft too. The nice golden colour and the long split says so much about this cake. If you wish to do a small one you can always half this recipe with out a problem. If you don’t mind the size I made freeze the rest to take out when you feel like something to go with your coffee.
Adding the amount of cocoa can be done with a small amount too. With out cocoa you can always add a colour. There are so many options with your own creativity level.
Instead of using self raising flour and corn flour together you and add both together to use corn flour. Adding a baking paper to the tray is for easy release. But if you have a good quality non-stick loaf pan try using with out any baking paper.
