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!

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
