Marble Cake made in a bundt is one of those dessert options which looks awesome and tastes amazing!
Day before yesterday, I baked my first bundt cake. There is something ceremonious about them, isn’t it? I baked a simple marble cake. I personally thought the marble didn’t come out very well despite the fact that I have made the marble cake with this recipe like umpteen number of times. But the softness and the texture of the cake was brilliant. I will have to master the art of getting the marble right in the Bundt. I did get it right the time I had made the cheesecake brownie marble!
In the meantime, did I tell you about the story of me getting this Bundt tin? Well, so here we go!
So, I have been wanting to get a Bundt tin for a long time. But when I would go to a shop and ask for it, half of the people would look at me with a face which would be a mix of shock, ignorance and disgust, Sigh, some would be polite to ask what it is and then I would take up the task to explain them how does it look. They would just give me a what-are-you-talking-about look! And the few, mind it, really very few who would know what it is, just wont have it. But despite this, I would insist that they take down my name and number and call me back when they get it.
Imagine my state when last week I got a call from a store saying that they have got it. I couldn’t believe my luck, really couldn’t!! And without wasting any time, I rushed to the shop lest someone else bought it! That is how I ended up with this Bundt tin and made this marble cake in it!
Marble in a Bundt
- 300 gms flour
- 3 tsps baking powder
- 300 gms sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 tsps vanilla essence
- 200 ml fresh cream
- 6 eggs
- 4 tbsps cocoa powder
- 2 tbsps butter for glazing the cake
- 2 tbsps sugar powdered for dusting the cake
- Divide the flour in two equal parts. To one part add 1.5 tsp baking powder and sift them together thrice and keep aside.
- to the other part of the flour, add the cocoa powder, baking powder and sift thrice again. You can also add coffee to it. I usually skip adding coffee because Ojas loves to have cakes.
- Beat the eggs and sugar till fluffy and then slowly add the cream to the mixture and beat some more.
- Divide the above mixture into two.
- And add one part of the above mixture to the above created and sieved flour mixtures. Add vanilla essence to the one which doesn't have the cooca powder.
- Mix both well to have a smooth batter. So, now you have two batters for the marble to be created.
- Pour both the batters alternatively to achieve the marble effect.
- Bake at 200 deg C for about 35 mins or till the knife comes out clean.
- When the cake is hot, brush it with butter and sprinkle the powdered sugar on it.
