Marble Pound Cake


  • 150 gm unsalted soft butter
  • 1.5 cups (300 gm) powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) milk
  • 2 cups (300 gm) all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Method –

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C
  2. Add sugar and unsalted butter in a mixing bowl
  3. Also add vanilla extract
  4. Beat until light and fluffy for about 2 minutes
  5. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition
  6. Once all the eggs are added, beat for another 3 minutes until the mixture is pale in colour and increased in volume
  7. Add the milk to the mixture
  8. Mix the milk. The mixture will look curdled, which is normal
  9. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder over the mixture
  10. Mix with a spatula until the flour is incorporated
  11. Beat on low speed for 10-12 seconds to achieve a smooth consistency
  12. Divide the batter into 2 halves
  13. Add cocoa powder only on 1 half of the batter
  14. Mix the cocoa powder well
  15. Layer the vanilla and chocolate batter alternately in the prepared cake tin
  16. Shake the pan slowly so that the batter settles nicely
  17. Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean
