Torta Marmolada - Marble Cake

When I was in Argentina last year one of my cousins made a delicious marble cake ... for her own birthday!  There were so many dishes on the table, everyone brought a plate of their favourites or their special cullinary masterpeice.  Sylvana made the marble cake as it is her daughter Catarina's favourite - and very quickly became mine!  Definitely one to add to the recipe book - it is super easy and super scrumptious!

Torta Marmolada


  • 240g of plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 100g of butter
  • 150g of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa powdered

Place in a bowl the butter,  egg and sugar and mix well. 

Add the flour and milk alternating between the two and mix through.  Leave a small amount of milk to dilute the cocoa powder.
In a well lined cake tin place half the mixture in (a spoonful at a time).

With the small amount of milk left add to the cocoa powder and mix well.  Add this to half of the cake mixture which is still left in the bowl.  Add some flour if the mixture becomes to runny.  Make sure it has the same consistency as the mixture you have already poured in the cake tin.

Pour over the rest of the mixture into the cake tin - do not mix through.

Cook for 45-55minutes in a pre-heated oven at 180degrees or until cooked through.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
