Marble Cake

As soon as I saw this recipe on a blog, I knew I had to try it out. Somehow it reminded me of the chocolate vanilla cone I used to eat as a kid at Dairy Den, a favorite local ice-cream parlor.

As I hurried through the list of ingredients to check if I had the necessary material to bake it right away, I discovered this cake was eggless and butterLESS! Yes, butter-less and believe me, if you ever try it out, you won’t miss the butter in it at all. Instead, it uses a wonderfully healthy ingredient called yogurt, which made me jump with joy.

I marked this cake for one of the afternoon projects with my daughter and she loved helping me bake it. Her favorite part was making swirls with a fork in the batter. Her only  disappointment was not being allowed to check the oven every 2 minutes (why is it taking so long to finish??). At the end of it though, she declared that this was the best thing we ever cooked together in our kitchen and the compliment made my day!

So here are the pictures of the marble cake baked in my oven, dig right in!

Things done different

I used Vanilla Bean Yogurt in place of plain yogurt.
I cut my cake into big squares for ease of serving.
