Looking for the lost marble

What could be more perfect than a marble cake than a marble cake over a marble stone… ?!…

That’s how I’ve spent my afternoon, on an unstoppable search on stone shops looking four the yin yang of our background, that looks lost in the middle of so many and so expensive samples!!!
The effort is always rewarded and our cause was embraced by a super employee that have offered all the choices…

More perfect than a marble cake over a marble stone, only a marble cake over a marble stone and a smile…

Thanks to everyone who takes their jobs as seriously as we do! :)

Marble cake

Serves 8-10:

125 g soft butter
200 g sugar
4 eggs
100 ml whole milk
200 g self-rising flour
140 g chocolate

Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.
Grease a 23 cms cake tin and sprinkle with flour.
Beat the butter and sugar together until white and light.
Add the egg yolks while mixing, then the milk.
Fold through the flour and whipped egg whites.
Divide the mixture between two bowls.
Melt the chocolate and pour into the mixture in one of the bowls.
Take 2 spoons and use them to dollop the chocolate and the plain cake mixes into the tin alternately.
Bake for 25-30 minutes.

Top with chantilly and melted chocolate.


200 ml cream, chilled
25 g icing sugar
vanilla sugar

Whip the cream.
Add sugar and whip until stiff.
