Double Colour Cake Thermomix: How to Prepare the Marble Cake

Double Colour Cake Thermomix: How to Prepare the Marble Cake

The usual ingredients that we all have at home make the Double Colour Cake Thermomix a genuine and easy to make dessert that will appeal to everyone, especially children.

I often put a slice in the children's backpack instead of bought snacks or greasy pizzas.

I started my experience in the kitchen with donuts and I was wondering how to put the cocoa stains on the two-tone donut “at the right point”. It was my mother who revealed the mystery to me, telling me that the cooking itself distributed the stains evenly.

Good cooking with the Double Colour Cake Thermomix!


(for 8 people)
For the dough
- Zest of one lemon
- 200 g granulated sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- 120 g water
- 120 g sunflower oil
- 300 g plain flour
- 50 g potato starch
- 16 g baking powder
- 25 g bitter cocoa

To decorate
- Icing sugar to taste

Let's cook!

Put the zest of a lemon and 200 g granulated sugar in the mixing bowl and chop 10 Sec. Speed 10.

Insert the butterfly whisk.

Add 4 medium eggs and whip the mixture 5 Min. Speed 4.

Add 120 g water, 120 g sunflower oil, 300 g plain flour and 50 g potato starch and mix 10 Sec. Speed 2.

Add 16 g baking powder and mix 20 Sec. Speed 2.

Pour half of the mixture into a 26 cm diameter donut-shaped mold.

Pour 25 g unsweetened cocoa into the mixing bowl and mix 20 Sec. Speed 2.

Bake in a static oven, preheated to 180C for 40-45 Min.

Once cold, sprinkle with icing sugar to taste.


In winter, you can replace the lemon peel with orange peel.

If you want to get a marbled effect, after pouring the cocoa mixture, make concentric circles on the dough with a toothpick.
