Recipe Notes

Tips for Eggless Marble Cake Recipe

  1. Sieving the flours are important to avoid lumps and for even mixing.
  2. Ensure all the ingredients are in the room temperature. Don't take it directly from the fridge and use it.
  3.  Baking powder cannot be substituted with baking soda, both are different.
  4.  Ensure baking powder and baking soda is within the expiry date, else the cake doesn’t raise or turns spongy.
  5. Also don’t over mix the batter, otherwise the cake becomes hard.
  6. First, you can pour the whole plain cake batter then the whole cocoa batter and make swirls.  
  7. Once you prepare the batter, bake it immediately else the baking powder deactivate and the cake won't raise.
  8. Always choose the correct sized baking tray, else while baking itself the cake overflows. To avoid this fill the batter only, to 1/2 of the tray.
  9. Furthermore, don't open the oven door for the first 30 minutes, to avoid the temperature variation.
  10. If the cake doesn’t get baked in the centre, cover the tray with an aluminium foil/butter paper and bake for another 10 minutes.
  11. For even golden coloured top layer, brush the cake with little milk before 10 minutes and bake it again.
