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


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Beat the butter and sugar together. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each one.

  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.

  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.

  5. Marble the batters by using a spatula and swirling it around through the mixture. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
