Baking, cakes, flour, Snacks | February 18, 2011 | By

This year I have actually missed my blogging to a great extend.I’m trying to patch up… 🙂
Marble cakes and checkerboard cakes have always been my favs..Heres a recipe from Dorie Greenspan ‘s book..

2 cups and 2 tbsps of all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2  tsp salt
12 tbsps of butter at room temperature
4 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk

  • Preheat oven to 325 degree F and butter and dust a loaf pan with flour.
  • Whisk flour,baking powder and salt.
  • Beat the butter until smooth.Add sugar and beat for about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.Beat in the vanilla.Add in  the flour mix  in three seperate additions along with the milk.Donot overbeat.
  • Now divide the batter equally and  to one part add Cocoa mix(2tbsp of cocoa powder +1/4 cup of milk)
  • Scrape both the batters in a loaf pan.
  • I baked the cake for about an hour in my oven.Bake till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
