  1. Bake at 180C/gas to 160C/gas 4. Grease the cake tin by 20cm and place the greaseproof circle. If you’re looking to make your life easier you can simply add everything (except the cocoa powder) to a food processor, and then whizz for about a minute until it is the mixture is smooth. If you prefer mixing by hand, mix sugar and butter before adding eggs one at a moment making sure to mix well with each addition. Blend in the milk, flour as well as vanilla extract till the mix is well-mixed.
  2. Divide the mixture among two bowls. Add the cocoa powder to the mix in one bowl. Two spoons are needed and you can make use of them to spoon the vanilla and chocolate cake mix into the tin alternating. After all the ingredients have been consumed (and in the event that children are involved then you’ll have to make sure the bottom of the tin is well coated) Tap the bottom of the tin on your work surface to make sure you don’t have any bubbles. Use a skewer to spin it around the mix inside the tin several times in order to create the illusion of marbles.
  3. The cake is ready to bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until a skewer that has been inserted into the middle is clear. Transfer the cake onto an air-tight cooling rack and allow it to cool. It will last for three days inside an airtight container. You can also freeze for as long as 3 months.
