Perfect Marble Sponge Cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Cooking Steps:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

Step 2: In a bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 4: Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract.

Step 5: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with milk. Begin and end with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.

Step 6: Divide the batter in half. In one half, gently fold in the unsweetened cocoa powder, creating the chocolate batter.

Step 7: Alternately spoon dollops of vanilla and chocolate batter into the prepared cake pan.

Step 8: Once all the batter is in the pan, use a knife to swirl the two batters together to create a marbled effect.

Step 9: Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Step 10: Allow the Marble Sponge Cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 11: Slice and enjoy the delightful swirls of vanilla and chocolate in each soft and airy bite.

Savor the timeless appeal of Marble Sponge Cake – a perfect treat for any occasion that combines the best of both vanilla and chocolate flavors.
