Recipe Sunday - The marble cake (so easy!)

This Sunday I suggest a classic. A recipe so easy, not decadent for a penny.
When we have 3 darling little home for tea and we did not really want to break the head, marble cake is perfect.

Ingredients 200g butter 4 eggs

200 g sugar 4 g salt 200 g flour

2 packets of vanilla sugar
30 g cocoa powder

My thing to me : vanilla syrup or honey to make the cake softer

Preheat oven to 180 ° C and slide rack in middle.
Butter a loaf pan, 28 cm in length.

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Remove from heat.

Break the eggs into two large containers, separating the whites from the yolks.

Add sugar and salt to egg yolks. Mix well with wooden spoon.

Then add alternately with small amounts of flour and melted butter. Finish by adding a tablespoon of vanilla syrup (or honey). Mix well.

Beat the egg whites until stiff, incorporating a bag of vanilla sugar midterm.

Mix the whites into the batter. Working with the wooden spoon.

Divide mixture into 2 containers. Stir in cocoa in one and the rest of the vanilla sugar in the other.

With a tablespoon, divide the two preparations in pan, alternating to give a marbled effect.

Bake for one hour. To check for doneness, prick the tip of a knife into center of cake: it should come out clean.

Tip: In most recipes that use egg whites until stiff, they must be incorporated in the dough gently, otherwise they will "break". For this recipe, they can work without too much caution because the final texture of the cake is quite dense.

For the syrup with vanilla : I use syrup Fabbri. This is the kind of syrup found in Starbucks or equivalent. For those who live in Britain, you will find the syrup Fabbri at Sainsbury.
