Maida - 1 and 1/4 cup
Condensed milk / Milk powder - 3 tbsp
Baking powder - 2 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar - 3/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
Hot water - 2 tbsp
Sieve maida with baking powder and baking soda atleast twice and keep aside.
In a bowl Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Add milk and mix well until creamy.
Add vanilla essence, condensed milk / milk powder and give a quick stir.
Then add maida, mix well to form a creamy batter.
Take 1/4 of the prepared batter and add coco powder, mix well and keep aside.
Now your both the batters are ready.
Preheat oven to 170C for 10mins.
Meanwhile grease a baking pan(I used my bread loaf pan) with butter and flour.
First pour half of the vanilla batter and add half of the chocolate batter in circles as shown below.
Then with a fork make marble like patterns - dont overdo.
Again add the remaining vanilla batter, chocolate batter in circles and make marble like patterns with a fork / knife.
Can you see the swirls? Now bake the cake at 17o deg C for 40-45 mins or until a fork inserted at the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool down the cake for 10mins then invert.
Cut down into slices and enjoy.
The slices were huge so I cut it down further into half while serving.
You can just pour the whole of the vanilla batter then the chocolate batter fully and make swirls.
I wanted a layered pattern so did 2 layered swirls.
Also the proportion of chocolate : vanilla batter is purely your choice.
The cake is very soft and is not of the firm type of cake.
The cake rises well so make sure to pour only till 3/4 of the cake pan.
Make sure to cool completely before you slice them else the cake will crumble.
