The Eggless Marble Cake is a lusciously spongy cake with the rich and delicious aroma of condensed milk and vanilla, laced with portions of intense dark chocolate cake.

It is called Marble Cake because it appears like marble. The cake is soft and is flavourful, simple though tasty.

Hosting a High Tea Party, then Eggless Marble Cake is a great accompaniment to your tea. You can make the cake 3 days in advance as it will stay fresh. Just cling wrap Eggless Marble Cake and store it in an airtight box.

Once the Marble Cake is baked make sure to demould it after 5 minutes and place it on a rack or else it will have water droplets which will reduce the shelf life of the cake.

Marble Cake can be warmed in the microwave and serve with a scoop of Vanilla Ice-Cream. Eggless Marble Cake can also be coated with a layer of Chocolate Truffle Sauce, once it has cooled completely and then slice it to serve.

Method for Marble Cake

  1. For preparing the marble cake, we will first grease a 150 mm. (6”) cake tin with melted butter. You can even make use of a 200 mm. (8”) bread loaf tin to prepare the marble cake. Ensure that you brush butter till top as the cake will rise and you do not want it to stick to the edges.
  2. Dust it with plain flour and sift to ensure uniform distribution of the flour.
  3. Shake/Pat and remove the excess flour. Keep aside. If not dusting then place butter paper at the bottom of the cake tin to avoid sticking.
  4. For the batter of marble cake, in a deep bowl, place the sieve.
  5. Add the plain flour.
  6. Add the baking powder.
  7. Add the baking soda. Baking powder and baking soda are used in order to activate and create the carbon dioxide that is required to lift the batter. Now the reason behind using both is because you might have enough soda to neutralize the acid in the marble cake recipe, but not sufficient enough to lift the batter.
  8. Sift together to get a lump-free flour and keep aside.
  9. Take a small add 2 tbsp of hot water and add the cocoa powder.
  10. Mix it very well using a whisk. Keep aside.
  11. In another big bowl, add the butter and beat it using an electric beater till light and fluffy.
  12. Add the sugar, condensed milk and vanilla essence beat it till smooth..
  13. Add the sieved plain flour mixture and milk alternatively and beat it lightly till mixed well.
  14. Mix gently with the help of a spatula to make the vanilla sponge batter of a dropping consistency.
  15. Divide the batter in 2 equal portions.
  16. Add the cocoa mixture in one of the batter.
  17. Mix very well to form a chocolate sponge batter.
  18. Take a greased and dusted loaf tin, add the vanilla sponge batter and chocolate sponge batter alternatively. You may pour the batter in a sequence of your desire, may be chocolate first and vanilla later. Spread it evenly. We have used vanilla and chocolate but, using the same technique, you can make cake with other flavour combinations too.
  19. Take a fork or a toothpick, pass it through the batter till the bottom and create circular swirls throughout without lifting the fork. There is no fixed pattern to it and you can bake it in any design of your choice.
  20. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160°C (360°F) for 40 minutes till the cake leaves the sides of the tin and is springy to touch. Insert the toothpick and check if it comes out clean or no. The oven setting may vary in various oven so we would suggest you to check every 5 minutes in the middle of the cake, after the initial 30 minutes to see if the cake is baked or no.
  21. Keep aside to cool for 15 to 20 minutes. If you slice a very hot cake, it would start crumbling. Once cooled, invert the tin over a rack. Tap sharply to unmould the eggless marble cake.
  22. Cut eggless marble cake into pieces and serve. You can even top the marble cake with frosting once the cake is cooled completely.
  23. Our eggless cake recipe collection has many eggless cake recipe options made using condense milk, oil, curd as an egg replacement.

Things to keep in mind while baking

  1. Keep all the ingredients ready before you start making the cake.
  2. Grease and line baking tin with parchment paper and keep the baking tin ready in advance.
  3. Pre-heat the oven for at least 5-10 minutes.
  4. Always bake the cake in the middle rack.
  5. Measure the ingredients exactly.
  6. Follow the method exactly as described.
  7. Once done, remove the cake from the oven immediately and let it cool it for few seconds and demould it while it is hot and place it on a wire wrack.

Cake is completely cooled and then demoulded

  1. What happens if the cake is completely cooled and then demoulded?  If the cake is completely cooled and then demoulded, there would be condensation below the cake and it will make the cake soggy.

Reason cake sinks in the centre?

  1. What is the reason for my cake to sink in the centre? Low temperature while baking the cake is a common mistake made.
  2. Excess amount of baking powder or baking soda used in the cake batter leads the cake to sink.
  3. If the cake is under baked.
  4. If the cake batter is out for too long before baking.
  5. Opening the door of the oven at a very early stage of baking.

My cake has cracks?

  1. What are the reasons for my cakes to have cracks? High temperature of the oven causes the cake to develop cracks.
  2. Batter of cake is very dense if you have over mixed the batter.

Cake is not soft after it has baked?

  1. Cake is not soft after it has baked? Over beating of the cake batter makes it dense.
  2. If the mixture curdles separating the fats, again the batter becomes dense not allowing it to rise.
  3. If the mixture curdles separating the fats, again the batter becomes dense not allowing it to rise.

Make Cake in a Pressure Cooker
