Marble Bundt Cake


I baked this cake from a very old recipe that was on my-to-do list for a long, long time.  Using very basic ingredients, this cake is moist and the brandy blended very well with the chocolate and orange flavours.















A cup of piping hot black tea will certainly go well with a piece of this marble cake.

Ingredients
  • 7.1/2 oz butter
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 5 egg whites
  • 8 oz caster sugar
  • 14 oz plain flour
  • 1.1/2 oz bittersweet couverture, melted
  • 10 Tbsp milk
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon/orange  ( I used orange)
  • 1.3/4  Tbsp brandy
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • Icing sugar to dust on top of the cake  (optional)
Method
  1. Sift flour with baking powder, salt, set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar till light and creamy.  Add in egg yolks.  Mix well.
  3. Add in sifted flour alternating with the milk.  Add in zest and brandy.  Mix well.
  4. Beat egg whites till stiff but not dry, fold into the flour mixture.
  5. Add in the melted chocolate into half batter.  Leave the other half plain.
  6. Spoon alternate batters into  a lightly greased and floured 9 inch Bundt pan.  Swirl with a knife for a marble effect.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 mins. in  a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C till golden brown.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
  8. Let cake cool in pan for about 10 mins. before unmoulding to cool on a wire rack.

  2. Love the beautiful marbling. I notice by beating the egg white separately it gives a lighter texture to the cake.

    Grease and flour the mould even though it's non-stick, the cake will come out smoothly.

    1. Yes, in oz/ounces. If you're not familiar with ounces, then you can convert to grams. Use the Conversion Calculator under Useful Links at the bottom right corner. Hope this helps!

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
