Marble Butter Cake

Butter cake is the cake that I always will bake, not only cos I love it, and also that is the cake that dear husband will always eat. I used to stick to Mrs NgSK butter cake  but now I am searching for alternative on whole eggs recipe when I am too lazy to bake using eggs separation method.

Recipe modified from Gracious Treatz 

Ingredients :
230g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
250g butter
200g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla paste
5 eggs
50g milk

10g cocoa powder 

Method :
  1. Cream butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  2. Put in egg yolks one by one and beat well after each addition.
  3. Add in vanilla paste and mix well.
  4. Put in half the flour and mix on low speed until incorporated.
  5. Put in milk in 2 additions and mix until well incorporated.
  6. Fold in the balance of flour.
  7. Take 1/3 of the batter, mix well with cocoa powder.
  8. Scoop the plain and chocolate batter alternately into greased pan and level.
  9. Bake at pre-heated oven at 180C for 35 to 45 mins or until skewer comes out clean.
  10. Remove from oven and invert to cool completely before unmoulding

The cake is soft and fragrance, a bit dry at the outer layer probably I had over baked the cake slightly but overall still taste good. The recipe called to use 7" square pan but I didnt read the recipe properly so I used 8" square pan so it required shorter baking time. I checked the cake at 40 mins and it was done. I will definitely try to bake again.
