Recipe - Marbled Cakes - Makes 8 


100g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar
120g self raising flour, sifted
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp cocoa powder


1. Heat the oven to gas 4, fan 170oC. Put the moulds onto a baking tray.
2. Mix the butter, sugar, eggs, flour and milk together in a large bowl. Use an electrical hand mixer at medium speed for 1 minute or use a wooden spoon until combined.
3. Put half of the cake mix into another bowl, add the cocoa powder and mix.
4. Using a teaspoon, dot the mixture into the mould alternating with the chocolate and plain mix, until the moulds are 2/3 full.
5. Use a cocktail stick to swirl the mixture a few times and to ensure the ears of the moulds are filled properly.
6. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until a cocktail stick comes out clean.
7. Allow to cool in the moulds for 10 minutes before gently easing them out. Cool on a wire rack.
8. Trim any domed areas from the cakes to create a flat base for them to sit on and show the details on the faces.
