Took a long break, had a good summer and am back with a bang! This recipe came out exceptionally well and looks and tastes delicious!


All purpose Flour : 2 cups
White Sugar : 1 cup
Butter, softened : 1/2 cup
Baking powder : 2 Tsp
Salt : 1/2 Tsp
Vanilla Extract : 1 Tsp
Milk : 1 Cup
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder : 2 Tbsp

Method :
1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2) Grease and flour the cake tin
3) Place flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter or margarine, eggs, vanilla, and milk into mixing bowl. Beat slowly to moisten, then beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for about 2 minutes until smooth.
4) Reserve 3/4 cup batter; pour the remainder into pan.
5) Stir cocoa into the 3/4 cup reserved batter. Drop by spoonfuls over top of white batter. Using a knife, swirl the cocoa batter into the white batter to incorporate it in a marble effect
6) Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until an inserted wooden pick comes out clean.
