The best Marble Cake I've ever had. Tried making it first time and nailed it. I have used the real white and dark chocolate in it. It's a delicious, moist cake. The contrasting flavors of dark and white chocolate give the cake an attractive appearance and irresistible flavor, which can be enjoyed with tea/coffee or with the topping of ice-cream and hot chocolate sauce.

1 hr 15 min
- Eggs - 5, large
- Granulated sugar - 1/3 cup
- Vanilla extract - 1 Tsp
- Pinch of salt
- Baking powder - 1 Tsp
- Butter - 1 stick( 8 Tbsp )
- All purpose flour - 1 cup + 1 Tbsp
- Dark chocolate - 125 gms
- White chocolate - 125 gms
- Beat the 5 eggs with the sugar, using an egg beater till the eggs become double in volume, fluffy, and have a light pale color. This is an important step to make the cake moist!
- The eggs are ready when you can actually create a ‘ribbon’ with the batter when you pour some of it with a spoon over the rest of the batter!
- Add the vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and the baking powder to the egg mixture. Continue mixing for a few seconds until well incorporated.
- Melt the butter in a microwave to soften up a bit.
- Add the melted butter to the egg mixture while continuously stirring.
- Sift the flour over the egg mixture and gently fold all the ingredients together using a spatula, until well incorporated.
- Split the batter, equally, into 2 separate bowls. Melt dark and white chocolate separately in a microwave. In one portion, add melted dark chocolate, and in the other one, add melted white chocolate. Mix both the batters properly. If you don't like white chocolate you can skip it, or you can replace the dark chocolate with cocoa powder ( but using real melted chocolate makes a huge difference)
- Preheat your oven at 365 degrees F or 180 degrees C.
- Butter your cake mold and sprinkle little flour and dust off the excess.
- First pour half of the white chocolate batter in the pan. Then cover it with the entire dark chocolate batter, use a spatula to spread evenly. Finally pour the rest of the white chocolate batter on top of the chocolate batter.
- Insert the knife in the batter and move it around to create swirls.
- Bake the cake for around 45 minutes or until it is done. It will become golden brown, and when you press the top of the cake it feels firm.
- Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool down!
- Serve warm with a cup of tea/coffee or with a scoop of ice-cream.
