Old Fashion Marble Cake

This is something I love to eat since young and this is my 2nd attempt at trying this. First attempt, I ran out of cocoa powder right at the min when I needed it after preparing the first few steps. It was frustrating so I used milo instead, which wasnt so ideal. So 2nd attempt with cocoa powder was good :)



A
1 tsp natural vanilla extract
185g unsalted butter, chopped
230g caster sugar
Mix well using electric beaters till pale and fluffy


B
3 eggs
Add in eggs, one at a time and beat well


C
280g self raising flour (sifted)
185ml milk
Add in C alternating between each item and fold the mixture in between

D
2 tbsp cocoa
1 1/2 tbsp warm milk
Stir until smooth and add into one half of the mixture till well combined.

Spoon the 2 mixtures into the loaf tin in alternate spoonfuls. Bake at 200deg C for 40 min.

Enjoy and happy new year!

This reminds me of my childhood food....this is one of the few cakes that I had during my childhood, my aunt made for us....My family hardly or probably never buy cake from bakery shop when I was a young kid.
