Square Tin Marble Cake Recipe - Mmm, sounds like Sponge Bob! LOL!

I am not really into baking because I would need to measure the required ingredients and sometime the cake just doesn’t turn out right. Therefore, I just use cups and spoons for my measure and save all the hassle of bringing out the weighing machine which I rarely use. The batter for this recipe is enough to fill my 8”x8” square aluminium baking tray. Here is the Marble Cake that my daughter and I baked last weekend. She loves cooking and was delighted to be able to help me bake this cake. And of course, she gets to lick clean the leftover cake batter in the mixing bowl! LOL!

Ingredients
Butter, 250gms
Eggs, 5 pcs, beaten slightly
Flour, 4 cups
Baking powder, 1 teaspoon
Milk powder, 2 tablespoons
Shortening, 1 tablespoon
Castor (caster)
Sugar, 2 cups (or 1 ½ cup)
Vanilla Essence, 1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon

Put butter, shortening and castor sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix well until the mixture stick to the bowl and will not drop when you turn the bowl upside down. Add egg and stir the batter thoroughly. Sift flour and put it in slowly to the batter. Pour in the vanilla essence, milk powder and baking powder. Stir until well mixed. Take out around ½ cup of the batter and put the cocoa powder into it. Pour the rest of the batter into the oiled and floured baking tin. Use a spoon to put the cocoa mix in straight lines on top of the base cake batter. Use a tooth pick to drag the desired pattern on the cake. Bake in preheated oven at 200 Deg C for 20 minutes.

That looks really pretty. :)
Marble cake is actually my twin boys' favorite, they're 6. While my eldest 9 and youngest 3, both girls, favors carrot cake. Weird how they come up with their own favorites. When I was a kid, any cake will get me excited. Oh well, they do compromise with each other, so I don't really have to bake it both at the same time. They also let their Dad have his favorite bundt cake once in a while, ;)
