Marble Soft Cake is a delightful dessert that beautifully blends the flavors of vanilla and chocolate in a visually appealing swirl pattern. This cake is known for its light, airy texture, characteristic of a well-made sponge cake. It incorporates a mixture of smooth vanilla-flavored batter with streaks of rich cocoa-infused batter, creating a striking marbled effect that not only tastes delicious but also looks stunning when sliced.

The sponge base of the cake is moist and fluffy, typically made with a combination of whipped egg whites to incorporate air, and a batter enriched with egg yolks, oil, and milk for a tender crumb. The addition of cocoa powder not only adds a chocolatey depth to the flavor but also enhances the visual appeal with its contrasting dark swirls.

Marble Soft Cake is often appreciated for its elegant appearance, making it a perfect choice for special occasions or as a sophisticated addition to any tea or coffee time. Its balanced flavors of vanilla and chocolate cater to a wide variety of taste preferences, ensuring its popularity among different age groups and culinary tastes.

By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.
