Surprise Marble Cake Recipe

To make this surprise marble cake, preheat the oven to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas 4. Grease and line an 18cm/7in deep, round cake tin.

Gently melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of water. While the chocolate melts, cream the butter and the sugar together until the mixture goes white then mix in the flour and vanilla. Beat in the eggs one at a time until you have a thick, smooth mixture. Divide the mixture in half. Mix the liquid chocolate into one half.

Alternating a tablespoon from each bowl put the mixture into the cake tin. When it’s all in, level it off and tap the tin onto the work surface a few times to knock out any large air pockets. Take a metal skewer (I use a fondue fork) and swirl the mixture a couple of times to help it marble. Bake for just over an hour, until it feels springy and a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then turn out, remove any parchment and leave to cool on a wire rack.

As a Madeira cake, the surprise marble cake sponge will keep for some time. I store it in an airtight container in a cool cupboard.
