Sometimes, all you need is some old-fashioned goodness. Marble cake is a simple, childhood treat which I used to love. In fact, I remember back in Singapore, there was this bakery that sold packs of marble cake edges. Yup! – it’s the corners and sides of the cake that got trimmed off and to me, those were the best parts!!
I’ve never made my own marble cake before so I thought I’d give it a shot. As usual, I found a relatively straightforward recipe online, and went off on my baking adventure. With the exception of cheesecakes, I’ve never been very good at baking cakes. To me, baking is a science, you’ve got to get the ingredients measured correctly, the baking time and temperature has to be accurate etc. Well, this was yet another attempt at ‘science’. I am 100% sure I did not get the ingredient portions correct. I do not have weighing scales nor measuring cups so a lot of it was estimation.
The marble cake didn’t turn out too bad actually. I liked that it wasn’t too sweet (I used granulated instead of caster), the cake was light and crumbly but I think it could have done better on the taste if I had more butter in it. Maybe its time I got myself a measuring jug. Pyrex – I’ll be seeing you soon.
