Chocolate marble cake is a soft and spongy cake made using a combination of chocolate and vanilla batters. The cake batters are alternately added to the cake pan and random patterns are drawn to get a marble effect. This is one cake which basically does not need a frosting as it looks good as it is and tastes delicious. 


1 ¼ cups all purpose flour (maida)
1 tbsp corn flour
4 tsp cocoa powder
¾ tsp cooking soda
1 ¼ cups powdered sugar
¼ tsp salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter
2 small eggs at room temperature
¾th cup milk
½ tsp vanilla essence


Keep the butter outside the refrigerator so that it can soften a bit. (Softened butter is easier to beat but it should not melt). Sieve maida, corn flour, cooking soda twice and divide into two bowls. Take one bowl, add cocoa powder and sieve again. Now we will have two bowls, one without and the other containing cocoa powder.

Take a large bowl, add butter and sugar and mix well with a whisk till smooth. Now add eggs one at a time and beat well with an egg beater or electric hand mixer. There should be no lumps. Next add salt, vanilla essence, milk and beat till all the ingredients are well mixed. Divide this as well into two bowls.

Add the maida mix with cocoa to one bowl, and the maida mix without cocoa to the other bowl and fold well with a spoon. Make sure that there are no lumps. Preheat the oven at 170 degree Celsius with both upper and lower rods on for 10 minutes. Meanwhile grease an aluminium cake pan with butter and then flour with maida. Dust away any excess flour and keep the pan ready.

Now take the pan, add a few tbsps of plain cake mix, and then add a few tbsps of cocoa cake mix. Repeat the procedure till both the cake batters are poured into the pan. Fill the cake pan till slightly more than half and finally use a knife or spoon to form random patterns on the cake batter.

Now place the cake pan in the central rack of the oven and bake at the same temperature with upper and lower rods on for 20 to 25 minutes or till a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cut it into pieces and serve with tea. 

This recipe makes one cake of about 6” diameter and 1 ½” height. You can double the proportion of ingredients to make a bigger cake. 

  • Always wait for a few minutes before taking out the cake.
  • Allow it to cool down completely before cutting.
  • Keep it in an air tight container and/or refrigerate for later use.
