Choc-Vanilla Cake (Marble Cake)

I am usually a lil apprehensive with cakes.. I just feel that my cakes aren't always good-looking.. and mostly settle in for muffins.. but owing to a new cake tin n the urge to try "marbling", I tried the CHOC-VANILLA CAKE :)

This cake happened in an experimental mood... one of those days when you feel like having something sweet but not wholly chocolatee... Also, I thought of trying "marbling" .. don't think I was very successful with it but it surely tasted awesome ;) .. If you have comments about marbling.. pls pls do mention them.. I want it to look better next time..

Sorry... couldn't click this one well :(

Self Raising Flour - 1.5 cups (White Flour + 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder can be used alternatively)
Eggs - 4
Refined Oil - 1 cup
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
Cocoa Powder - 2 Tablespoons
Vanilla Essence - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 2 teaspoons (if required)
Chocolate Syrup & Chocolate Chips - For Garnish

1. Pre-heat the oven; 350 degree F

2. In a bowl, mix refined oil & sugar together. We could use an egg-beater for the same.

3. While beating the mixture, keep adding the flour and eggs slowly until all the ingredients blend well. Once done, pour half the batter into a seperate bowl.

4. Add vanilla essence to the first half of the batter and mix well.

5. Add cocoa powder & milk to the other half of the batter and mix well.

6. Take a baking tin and brush it with oil. Spoon batters into the prepared pan in 2 layers, alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate like a checkerboard. To create marbling, run a table knife through the batters in a swirling motion.

7. Bake, rotating the pan halfway through, until a cake tester comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Transfer pan to a rack to cool 10 minutes.

8. Once cool, transfer the cake on a plate and garnish with choclate syrup and chocolate chips.

Our cake is ready to serve :))
