I have always had a love for marble cake. It could be that my early birthday parties always seemed to have a marble cake with butter cream frosting made by mom! Great combination and so good.
Well, a blogger I follow posted a Marble Cake the other day – check hers out: http://bakewithmeblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/06/chocolate-orange-marble-cake/
This cake drew me in rapidly. BUT I am in the USA, born and bred, and except for a teeny tiny learning experience with metric – I do not know metric. Several years ago the US wanted to change to metric. I balked at that idea but was willing to learn. Then, as usual, they said we will not. OK. Got out of that one. But now I keep seeing these wonderful blogs with fantastic temptations and I want to make them. That’s where google comes in. So I converted the grams to ounces and OH MY! What a fantastic cake!
I clicked on her link to the BBC site with the original recipe: http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2988682/chocolate-orange-marble-cake
Here are the measurements I used:
Oven heated to 325 – I guessed that one. gas 4???????
1 cup butter (I used unsalted)
1 cup pure cane granulated sugar
1 cup Self rising Flour
The rest is in tablespoons (thank goodness)
And for the last part of the melted chocolate and orange I used a blop of Nutella with a dribble of orange juice mixed in and put in microwave briefly so I could drizzle it.
TRY IT! It is heavenly and I cannot stop eating it……..my birthday is Friday so I think I can justify the piggy-ness of devouring this cake.
