Recipe's preparation

    Preparing the dough
  1. This is my absolute favourite marble cake recipe. It's scrumptious and moist.
    Heat up your oven to 160 degrees, fan forced.

    Cut the butter into small pieces and put into Closed lid
    Mixing the butter slowly, starting on speed 3 turning up to speed 4-5 for 1 minute. Stop to push down any butter from the side of the Closed lid.
    Add sugar and vanilla sugar/essence. Mix for 50 seconds speed 5.
    Now add egg by egg to Closed lid on speed 5. Each egg should be beaten for 15 seconds. Now add flour, bi carb, baking powder, Rum, salt and sour cream to Closed lid. Mix all on speed 5-6 for a good 2 minutes.

    Make sure dough is mixing properly. Watch out for air bubble on bottom of Closed lid.

    When the dough is nice and airy fill 1/3 to 2/3 of it into a well oiled gugelhupf form (German). Or silicon form to your liking. Now return Closed lid to Thermomix and add cacao and milk. Feel free to add more or less cacao, depends on your liking. You might also want to add a spoon of sugar, to your liking. Depending on the strength of the cacao.Mix for an other 30 seconds on speed 5.

    Now fill the dark dough onto the light dough in your form.
    Use a fork to spirally mix dark one under the light one to get a nice spiral pattern. ( optional)
    Place in pre heated oven and bake for ca. one hour depending on the depth of you baking tin.
    Use a tooth pick to check if the dough has cooked through thoroughly.
    Adjust time slightly if need be.

    When done let the cake cool down fully, then take it out of the form.
    You can now chocolate coat it or enjoy it plain.

    Well the cake looks sensational & it was sent off to the office this morning without me tasting - reviews from my husband & his colleagues are excellent - better than the ones i used to buy from the Danish bakery apparently. Will have to wait & see how much makes it home for me. One thing - an icing recipe would be nice for the chocolate icing. I did find one on the internet eventually but it would be good to include in the recipe.
