A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a quick pudding or dessert to bake for Sunday lunch. I had always wanted to bake the Mocha Marble Cake from The Clandestine Cake Club Cookbook after tasting it when my friend had made it for one of our local cake club events. It had gone down very well with everyone who tried a slice of it (me included!). Not only did it taste good but it looked good too. Three months later and I finally got round to baking this scrumptious cake. I knew all of my family would like it so I was onto a winner.
Here’s how it was made:
I then put the different cake mixes into each tin spoon by spoon so that there was a good swirl of each. I thought there wasn’t too much of a contrast between each colour on this cake and I must admit I rushed getting the cake into the oven. I must’ve swirled it too much or something. The cake baked quite quickly at the usual time for a sponge cake of that size for about 25 minutes. Once it had started cooling down I made some buttercream up with butter, icing sugar and some coffee granules which had been dissolved in boiling water. There was ample icing to fill the cake and to ice both the top and the sides.
The cake lasted well for a couple of days in an airtight tin, though it was demolished by my family I only got a small slice of it. I will definitely be making this again. My hubby loves coffee cake so it could be a contender for his birthday cake next month!
