Perfect Marble Cake

Perfect Marble Cake

- 225g butter , softened
- 225g caster sugar
- 4 eggs
- 225g self-raising flour
- 50ml buttermilk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Heat oven to 180C/gas 160C/gas 4. Grease a 20cm cake tin and line the bottom with a circle of greaseproof paper. If you want to make life easy, simply put all the ingredients (except the cocoa powder) into a food processor and whizz for 1-2 mins until smooth.
If you prefer to mix by hand, beat the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold through the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir the cocoa powder into the mixture in one of the bowls. Take 2 spoons and use them to dollop the chocolate and vanilla cake mixes into the tin alternately. When all the mixture has been used up (and if young kids are doing this, you'll need to ensure the base of the tin is fairly evenly covered), tap the bottom on your work surface to ensure that there aren't any air bubbles. Take a skewer and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect. 

Bake the cake for 45-55 mins until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooling rack and leave to cool. Will keep for 3 days in an airtight container or freeze for up to 3 months.

Vietnamese Pandan Honeycomb Cake(Banh Bo Nuong )

Vietnamese Pandan Honeycomb Cake(Banh Bo Nuong )

 200ml thick coconut milk (1/2 can)
 150g sugar
 6 eggs
 200g tapioca starch/flour
 1 tsp baking powder
 5-6 drops pandan extract/paste.  i used 1/2 tsp plus a few drops

 preheat oven to 350F degrees
 in a small sauce pan heat coconut milk, sugar and extract until the sugar dissolves.  set aside to cool completely
 in a separate bowl, mix the tapioca starch and baking powder.
 in another separate bowl, lightly beat the do not want bubbles or foam.  i have read in many other recipes you should beat just until they look mixed.  one tip is to keep your whisk touching the bottom of the bowl while gently mixing.
pour cooled coconut mixture into eggs and gently combine well.
***at this time put your greased/sprayed cooking vessel (bundt pan) into the oven to preheat***
 gradually add the tapioca mixture to the egg/coconut mixture and quickly, but gently, beat until just dissolved/combined.
NOTE...i have found that tapioca starch is a hard one to combine.  i sifted it in and quickly, but gently whisked until very few lumps were left.  then, when i strained the batter into the pan i pushed through the remaining lumps.
remove hot baking pan from the oven.  strain batter through sieve into the hot baking pan and put in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.  i let mine sit in the budnt pan for about 10-15 minutes...then turned it over.  i read that might help it from falling.  i was anxious and removed the cake from the pan after about 20-25 minutes with a little tap on the counter.  YAY, no sticking.
