Marble Cake

You will need:

  • ½ cup butter (1 stick)/ olive oil (room temp)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cup All purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp yogurt/curd(you can substitute with buttermilk too)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ tsp red color
  • ¼ tsp green color
  • ¼ tsp yellow color
Step 1:

Preparing dry ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 350 F

Sieve together flour, baking powder and salt and keep it aside.

Step 2:

Preparing wet ingredients:

In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs using an electric mixer on medium for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add sugar, butter/oil , and vanilla essence to it and mix it for 1 min. Finally add curd/yogurt and mix it for a min.

Step 3:

Mixing wet and dry ingredients together:

Now add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients little by little. After that using a spatula fold the flour very well with the dry ingredients.

Step 4:

Making marble cake:

Divide the dough into 3 equal amounts. Better to use 3 mixing bowl . In one bowl add green color and in the other add red color and in the other add yellow color.

Step 5:

Now take a loaf pan and grease it with oil/butter.(In this way you can avoid the batter sticking on the bottom.

Step 6:

Pour 1 tbsp yellow color mixture in the greased loaf pan as shown in pic.

Step 7:

Next pour 1 tbsp green mixture as shown in pic.

Step 8:

Then build red mixture as shown in pic on top of the yellow mixture.

Step 9:

Repeat the step 6, 7 and 8 till you get over with all the cake mixture.

Step 10:

Finally using a tooth pick just draw lines on the batter and it will look like this. This step is purely optional. By drawing lines using tooth pick will give very good marble design. You can use tooth pick/ table knife (or wooden skewer) through the batters in a swirling motion to get a marble deisgn.

Step 11:

Transfer the cake mixture in the oven and bake it for 35 to 45 mins or till you get a clean tooth pick. Same old technique.

Cut and serve with whipped cream on top or as it is..


Can substitute the colors with cocoa powder for chocolate lovers. Can mix your favourite colors like pink, orange like that..
