Chocolate & Raisin Marble Cake

Wednesday 28 November 2012

Not too sweet and a muffin-esque texture - light and fruity with a swirl of chocolate loveliness...

Sometimes a mistake in the kitchen can turn into a great cake!

I was busy on a Sunday making dinner whilst feeding baby and making a cake, just another day. Daddy came into to chat to me and suddenly I had weighed out too much flour! Anyway I rescued the cake with and made this muffin style raisin and chocolate marble cake covered in dark chocolate. Make a batch too, makes 24 slices.

You Will Need -

250 grams butter
250 grams caster sugar
4 eggs 
250 grams self raising flour
50 grams cocoa
1 cup raisins
1 pinch baking powder
4 tablespoons of whole milk
100 grams of plain chocolate

2 cake sheets greased or lined with grease proof

Go Create!

Turn on the oven at 180 C to similar.

1. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Add the eggs one by one and beat thoroughly.
3. Stir in the raisins.
4. Sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa together and add by folding into the mixture.
5. Add the milk to stir in, your mixture should be fluffy and hold it's shape if spooned from the bowl.
6. Pour into the cake sheets and even off the top.
7. Cook for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Then leave to cool for 5 minutes and take out the tin and transfer to a cooling rack.
8. When the cake has cooled down, melt the chocolate either in the microwave or in a bowl in a pan of boiling water. Pour over the cake and leave to set.

This cake is rich but not too sweet with the cocoa giving it a bitterness and the raisins added a fruity addition.
