This cake is something to bake just when you need a little something to fill you up and keep you going. Credits to my good friend Isla.


  • 210g butter (softened)
  • 210g sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 210g self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsps cocoa powder


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  • STEP 2
    Beat the butter and sugar together. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each one.
  • STEP 3
    Add in the vanilla extract. Now mix in the flour one spoonful at a time, making sure that all the ingredients are mixed in. Leave half the mixture aside.
  • STEP 4
    With the other half of the cake mixture, add in the cocoa powder. Now put both batters into a greased circle tin, like a half moon.
  • STEP 5
    Marble the batters by using a spatula and swirling it around through the mixture. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
