This is a classic recipe I used to make when I was a kid. Something my mum taught me as a little girl. The basic recipe is a simple pound cake recipe and it can changed to make a chocolate cake or in this case a marble cake.
At home, we would just make the cake and as soon as it came out of the oven, cut it and start eating. We didn't have the luxury of any sort of icing.
As this was made at work, I added a mixture of butter and chocolate icing to give it a marble effect.
Made this at work since we had lots of egg whites left over. I added glace cherries, mixed peel and roasted almonds to the mixture, before baking them and then topped it with chantilly cream and some diced strawberries.
Hi my name is Beatrice. Have always loved baking and have been baking since I was a kid. It was only years later that I managed to find somewhere to learn more about cake decorating and the interest kept growing. Pursued my passion in Melbourne and I am now a qualified pastry chef.
