Chocolate Orange Marble Cake

Another recipe from the Macmillan coffee morning for you to try.
It's a simple sponge mixture but it looks super when you cut it into squares.

Ingredients and method

6oz margarine
6oz sugar
3 eggs
6oz self-raising flour

2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon orange essence
  • Put the top 4 ingredients into a bowl and mix with an electric mixer or wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. 
  • Next get another bowl and put half of the mixture into it and add the orange essence. Mix well.
  • Use a sieve to add the cocoa powder to the other bowl and mix in really well until it goes chocolatey.
  • You should now have two bowls of cake mix, one that looks creamy and smells of orange and another bowl of chocolatey mixture!
  • Grease and line a swiss roll tin with greaseproof paper to stop the cake sticking.
  • Add dollops of each cake mixture into the tin until it's all used up.
  • Swirl it gently with the handle of a teaspoon and smooth the top.
  • Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until springy to the touch.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Cut up into squares and decorate with your favourite toppings.
