Eggless Marble Cake-How to make Marble cake

Marble cake was my favorite when I was young as my mother used to make marble cupcakes often and we used to love it very much. I wanted to post my mom's recipe, but since she was away, I could not get her recipe. A Marble cake has both vanilla and chocolate batters, swirled to create a marble effect. It not only tastes great but also looks gorgeous. Today let us learn how to make eggless marble cake using condensed milk following this easy marble cake recipe-

    ReplyDelete
  16. Dear Anagha
    It varies depending on the type of oven you have.Most cakes are usually baked between 325-350 degrees Fahrenheit or about 180 degrees Celsius.Some may be baked at slightly lower or higher temperatures,depending on the texture desired.

  30. Hi Padhu,

    I tried this cake today, but baked it in the pressure cooker. I did not quite get the marble effect, as you have mentioned above, may get it only with practice. However, my concern was the top of the cake which came out a bit dry. The inner part is softer. Not sure what I have done wrong. :-(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sush - You might have over baked the cake or might have used the the top coil. Kindly read Baking tips for beginners to have better idea.

    2. Thank you so much Megha for liking my recipes. I use standard Measuring cups and spoons for all my recipes. Measure it loosely. 1 cup all purpose flour is 125 grams.

    1. Devika - You can increase the sugar. I used Indian cocoa powder. If you use imported ones, you might need more sugar.

  36. Hi
    I would love to try out this cake.Could you please tell me if I could maybe use vegetable oil instead of butter?.If so,how much oil will I have to use?
    Thanks and Cheers-Renu.

    1. Oil makes the cake moist and dense. I am not sure as I have not experimented it. Try using less oil than butter. Do not substitute the same amount.

    2. Hi Padhu,
      Tried this cake by substituting oil for butter-and yes,the cake did turn out a bit dense-the way we like it actually!.I used roughly about 1/4 cup canola oil and the cake turned out just perfect!.Thanks-Renu.
