Marble cake
Spread the Flavours

A marble cake is a cake having marble like appearance which is formed by the blending of light and dark batter. It can be a mixture of vanilla and chocolate cake. The vanilla chocolate combo cake is also called as a zebra cake due to its appearance. The marble cake can be prepared with any other combo like strawberry, vanilla or any other fruit flavour. Here I’m preparing an eggless marble cake. Lets see how to prepare it.
