Strawberry Chocolate Marble Cake

I had wanted to update my blog earlier but I was too caught up with housework (a never ending thingy!).. did ironing... oh how i hate ironing... and yep as u might hv guessed.. Sonia was fussy today.. sleeping an hour during day time and climbing up and down the stairs whenever I am not in sight! grrrr.. she cannot sit still .. shes always on the move.. she has so much of energy.. sigh... i guess she takes after me.. :(

Anyway Hairi got home 2hrs ago... we hv not seen him for 2wks and oh boy... he has grown into a young man.. well he turned 19 three days ago.. so happy belated birthday son!!

I cooked him his fav food (asam pedas melaka) and also baked him a marble cake.. errr well honestly, the cake was not in my to do list today.. but.. i just couldnt resist baking it...

I LOVE marble cake. I love pound cake too. I think both cakes remind me of Eid heheh..

hello there. Been an ardent silent reader of your blog...Very entertaining, especially when I'm going bonkers at work. Something triggered inside of me, when u said that marble cake reminded you of Eid. Yes.. so true, seeing the photo of the delicious cake of yours brought me back to the zaman when my granny would have it placed at the centre of the table... the Good old Days, I would say. Thank you for bringing a big grin to my face today :-D

Hi Rima, I just love marble cake. Even during my short stint baking and selling cupcakes, I like it when my clients (cewah) said "macam biasa" (read: marblelah tu).
