Recipe of the Week - Marble Cake (Wheat & Dairy Free)

Marble Cake looks impressive and yet is surprisingly easy to make. If you can whip up a Victoria Sponge then you can whip up a Marble Cake!

You will need:
8oz dairy-free margarine
8oz sugar
10oz Dove's Farm Wheat-Free Self Raising Flour
2tsp baking powder
4 eggs
2tbsp rice (or soya) milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp hot water

~Put the margarine, sugar, flour, baking powder, eggs, milk and vanilla extract into the bowl of a freestanding mixer and beat until everything is well mixed, light and fluffy.
~Put round about half of the mix into another bowl.
~In a cup, mix the cocoa powder and hot water until it's smooth.
~Add this to one of the bowls and mix well until it's a smooth brown mixture.
~Into a lined 2lb loaf tin drop random spoonfuls of each mix, without mixing them together.
~Bake for 50-60 minutes at 160C.
~Cool on a cooling rack.

Little boys are fascinated by the way the patterns change with each slice of cake, and so keep eating it to see what the next pattern will look like.

 Well, that's the excuse I was given anyway!
