Chocolate Almond Marble Cake
(recipe adapted & modify slightly from Anncoo)
180g Cowhead salted butter, softened
105g fine sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
180g Blue Jacket Plain Flour
75g ground almond (I grind my own but not till very fine as I like to have some almond bits)
3 large eggs
2 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp cocoa powder mixed with 3 Tbsp hot water to make a paste
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1. Cream the butter & sugar together until light & pale in colour. Add in vanilla extract.
2. Whisk in eggs gradually till combined. Add in sifted flour, baking powder, ground almonds & milk. Whisk till combined.
3. Spoon 1/2 of the cake batter into a separate bowl & mix in the cocoa paste. Add the chia seeds to the other 1/2 of the the mixture. Add spoonfuls of each of the batter alternately to an 8" pan lined with baking paper & use a chopstick to create a marbled effect through the mixture.
4. Bake in a preheated oven @ 160C for 25mins.
