For this recipe, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 200 grams (1 cup) of white sugar
  • 225 grams (1 cup) of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 375 grams (3 cups) of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 240 ml (1 cup) of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  3. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Divide the batter into two. In one part, mix in the cocoa powder until well combined.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of the vanilla and chocolate batter alternately into the prepared pan. Use a knife to swirl the batters together to create a marble effect.
  6. Bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let it cool before slicing and serving.


  • If you want a more pronounced marble effect, you can use more cocoa powder.
  • Avoid overmixing the batter as it can result in a dense cake.
  • Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing to avoid crumbling.
