  • 1 ½ cups 200g self raising flour
  • 110 g of butter - at room temperature
  • ½ cup 110g caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • pink food colouring


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced) and line a large loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Place the butter and caster sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 3 - 4 minutes or until pale and creamy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and milk and mix to combine.
  • With the mixer running on a slow speed, add the eggs one at time and beat well.
  • Add the self raising flour and mix until just combined.
  • Transfer the mixture in three equal parts and add the cocoa to one and a couple of drops of pink food colouring to the other. Mix to create the coloured mixture.
  • Add spoonfuls of the three different coloured mixtures to your prepared loaf tin and once all the mixture is in the tin, use a butter knife to gently swirl the mixture to create the 'marble' effect.
  • Place the cake tin into the oven and cook for 30 - 35 minutes or until your marble cake is cooked through when tested with a skewer.
