Marble Cake with Thermomix

The Marble Cake is called "marble" because of the effect produced by the mixing of the white part of the mixture and the dark one (because of cocoa).

I had got an inspiration for this cake after reading a chef Christian's recipe. On his website, Chef Blog, Christian talks about this cake as his "comfort" cake, the one that brings him back in the times when he used to prepare it with his mum. My comfort food is not a cake but it is the Rice Stuffed Tomatoes recipe.

Let's come back to this cake: I tried to reproduce, through Thermomix, that softness coming from mixing the ingredients with a whisk. To do so, I added the butterfly tool. The result is very soft!


- 4 Eggs
- 200 g Sugar
- 100 g Butter
- 350 g Flour
- 200 g Milk
- 1 Baking Powder Sachet
- 30 g Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

How to prepare the Marble Cake

Place the butterfly tool in the Thermomix bowl and whip eggs and sugar. 4 Min. Speed 4.

Add soft butter. 1 Min. Speed 4.

Add flour. 1 Min. Speed 4.

Add milk. 30 Sec. Speed 4.

Add baking powder. 10 Sec. Speed 4.

Pour 3/4 of the mixture in a baking pan.

Add the unsweetened cocoa powder to the remaining mix. 10 Sec. Speed 5.

Pour this part of the mixture added with cocoa in the baking pan and move it with the spatula to create the famous marble effect.

Bake for 35-40 Min. 200°C.

I wanted to show you what usually happens to my cakes after the "official picture".

Here you are:
My daughter's little finger that grabs the cake and starts to slowly crumble it around the kitchen...To use a fairy tale terminology, it reminds me of Tom Thumb.
