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!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
