Eggless Marble Cake


Plain Flour/Cake Flour   - 1 -1/2 cup (minus 3 tblspoon)
Corn flour                      - 3 tblspoon
Sugar                              - 3/4 cup
Cooks dark Chocolate    - 1/2 cup Melted (I used bitter dark chocolate)
Cooks White Chocolate - 1/2 cup Melted
Oil                                  - 1/2 cup
Yogurt             - 1 cup
Baking powder              - 1 tspoon
Sodium bi carbonate - 1/2 tspoon
Vanilla essence    - 1 tspoon


Preheat oven at 180C . Meanwhile we will prepare the batter for cake.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl or on a double boiler. Keep aside to let it cool down.
Sieve the plain flour and corn flour in a bowl.
In another mixing bowl, mix the yogurt and sugar to dissolve it.
Add baking powder and baking soda, mix well and set aside for 2 minutes.
This liquid mix will become slightly frothy with small bubbles.
Now mix in vanilla and oil into it.
Now add little flour at a time until you finish mixing all the flour to get a smooth pouring batter.
Do not over mix it, as this egg-less and we need the batter to rise while baking. I used hand whisk to mix the batter.
Now divide the batter in two equal part in two bowls.
In one part add white melted chocolate and in another add melted dark chocolate. You can used flavored chocolates as well.
Now comes the real part of assembling it.
You can do it anyways you want as it's the two color which matters. Some People don't stick to white and brown. It could be pink and green or so on :)
It doesn't need to be in some sort of strict design. Some make it in Zebra style as well.
What I did is alternated both the batters in the loaf pan. First a thin line of white chocolate batter and then the dark chocolate batter.
Once first layer is done , Again I alternated the batters by putting white batter over dark and dark batter over white.
Do it until the batters are finish. On the top I mixed it with a fork, you can use knife or toothpick.
Place it in the middle rack in the oven and let it bake. It takes at least 40-50 minutes to let it bake completely.
The oven temperature varies from brand to brand, so keep an eye on it don't forget cake is in the oven.
Once it's been 35 minutes, insert a toothpick in the middle part of the cake and check if it's coming out clean or with some liquid.
Let it bake more if you see liquid on the toothpick. Check again after 5 more minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Mine took exact 52 minutes to bake completely.
Once done, take it out and let it rest for 10 minutes in the loaf pan and then tip it over to wire rack to cool down completely.
Once cooled and you are able to handle it with bare hands, slice it into thin or thick slices.

This cake is the best friend of Coffee and Milk. I eat it with Black coffee to compliment it better.
I could not take enough pictures of this cake as, it was baked in night time and also baked for a cake sale, so it was gone very quickly. I'll updated more pictures in this post once i'll make it again.
