Tri-Colour Marble Butter Cake

Bake a small butter cake to satisfy my cravings :D I miss my marble cake therefore modified slightly by adding another layer of green tea flavour :D

Recipe adapted from Old-Fashioned Marble Cake

(4" round cake)
  • 125gm unsalted butter
  • 90gm sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 125 self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1/2 tbsp condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder + 1.5 tbsp hot water
  • 1 tsp green powder + 1 tbsp hot water

  1. Line the base of a 4" round cake pan.
  2. Place butter & sugar in a mixing bowl. Beat at low speed till butter & sugar is evenly combined. Increase speed to medium and beat for 5mins or until mixture is pale & fluffy.
  3. Add eggs one at a time beating for 1 to 2 mins in between each addition. The batter will be light & fluffy.
  4. Combine condensed milk, water & essence together. With a balloon wire whisk, fold in half of the sifted flour and milk mixture. Fold in remaining flour & milk. Do not beat or stir the mixture. Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions (approx 125gm each).
  5. Fold in cocoa mixture into 1 portion and green tea mixture into another portion. Do not over-mix.
  6. Spoon plain batter into the cake pan. Spoon in cocoa batter and spread evenly follow by green tea batter.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 160 deg cel for 40-45 mins or till a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. (Note : Cover cake surface with a foil at the last 10mins to prevent over browning.
  8. Cool the cake in tin for 10mins before running a knife around the edge and turning it out to cool completely on a wire rack.
