Trio Marble Cake

Yesterday i baked and cooked so much that i didnt even hv time to update my baking post..had invited mom and dad to come over for iftar ... this is what i love abt Ramadhan.. fasting and inviting family or even friends for iftar!  (err besides trying my best not to get aggitated w/o any reason hahahah) 

Hb felt like eating steam rice with black pepper chicken.. so thats what we had last night as main dish and i had cooked steam tofu with minced chicken meat and mushroom to go along with (sooo delicious.. tks Gert for the wonderful recipe!).. had fried beanprouts to balance out our meal.. for something sweet i baked bingka pisang and cooked bubur cha cha as desert(mom's fav desert).. thats when i realised that i had prepared way too much food lol.. thank goodness we managed to almost finished up all our foodies!

So why baked a cake knowing theres so much food?? well the reason was clear.. i just felt like baking and eating a slice of marble cake! tks CMG for this wonderful.. super soft.. moist marble cake recipe! :o)

300g butter (i used unsalted butter)
280g superfine flour
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp milk powder
1/2 tsp salt (i added)
5 eggs (grade A)
250g sugar
1tbsp ovalette
30g glycerin
20g water
1/2 tsp essence vanilla
1/2tsp strawberry emulco
1tsp chocolate emulco
1/2tsp pink colour (i added)
1tsp chocolate colour (i added)

1. Preheat oven 180C, greased 8x8x3 cake pan (i used baking paper)
2. Sieve flour, salt, baking powder and milk powder
3. Using a stand mixer, beat butter till light and fluffy.. add in flour mixture
4. In another bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and ovalette on high speed till fluffy.. batter shud be whipped till it looks like ur making baulu mixture
5. Lower speed and add in butter/flour mixture.. continue to beat till well combined
6. Add in glycerin and water and mix till incorporated
7. Divide batter into 3 parts.. adding strawberry emulco and pink colouring to one, adding chocolate emulco and brown colour to another and adding vanilla essence to the last part.
7. Pour batter into pan alternately and gv it a swirl or two (do not over do it!)
8. Baked for abt 45mins on preheated oven of 180C

Note: I reduced ingredients by half and baked mine in 6x6" cake pan
