Low Fat Marble Cake

Marble cake is a sponge cake prepared with two batters prepared with vanilla flavoured batter and the another one is with chocolate batter,marble cake wasnt that much complicated, its quite very easy to prepare with a white batter, and this batter is divided in two bowls in which melted chocolate is added to one half..Its very simple to make swirls with the white and chocolate batters by pouring alternatively and then with a knife just make swirls through the two batter to blur the lines...I prepared this cake with thick yogurt and canola oil instead of using batter, this cake is quite a guilt free cake prepared simply with yogurt and oil..Finally i served this marble cake with powdered sugar and we enjoyed this spongy cake for our snacks..

Marble Cake

2cups All purpose flour
1cup Corn flour
2cups Sugar
4nos Eggs
1cup Yogurt
1cup Canola oil
1tsp Vanilla extract
150grms Dark chocolate bar
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda

Mix together the all purpose flour,corn flour, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside..Beat together the eggs and sugar until it turns pale and smooth, now add the yogurt and oil ,beat everything again for a while..now add the flours , stir everything well and dont overmix..Meanwhile melt the chocolate bar with few water in microwave oven for 4minutes, divide the already prepared batter in two bowls, to the one bowl add the vanilla extract and mix it while in another bowl add the melted chocolate and mix it..Preheat the oven to 350F..

Marble Cake

Greased a round pan or loaf pan, pour the vanilla flavoured batter first, then pour the chocolate batter, with a knife make some swirls through the batter to marbleize it..Bake for 25-30minutes in middle rack or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean..keep aside and let them cool, springle some powdered sugar over the cake before serving..

Serve warm or at room temperature..

Cake looks so soft and delicious, using oil for cake is not only a healthy alternative it also makes the cake much lighter, nice option Priya.
I would like to host your event for the month of July Priya, if it's OK with you, please let me know, it would be a real pleasure for me.
