Recipe: Caramel and Chocolate Marble Cake

Earlier this week I thought it would be fun to do some baking with my toddler. She had a great time and got thoroughly messy and ate some of the cake mix while we went along but that’s what its all about. She loves to have a spoon and get involved but doesn’t understand that we have to cook it before she can eat it!

I went for something fairly simple to bake, just a simple cake base but with a few extras to make it nice and tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 100g margarine
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g self raising flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 3 heaped teaspoons ready made caramel (I use carnation)
  • 3 heaped teaspoons chocolate spread

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Line and grease an approx 15cm in diameter round cake tin (to be honest it doesn’t matter what size and shape cake tin you choose, this is what I chose this time. Just make sure its not too big, there’s not loads of mix but you can double up if you want to make a bigger cake!)
  3. Put the margarine, sugar, flour and eggs in to a bowl and mix together (either with an electric mixer or a wooden spoon).
  4. Split the mixture in to approximate thirds.
  5. In one of the thirds add the caramel and mix together.
  6. In another of the thirds add the chocolate spread and mix together.
  7. Leave the last third plain.
  8. Dot the plain cake mixture on the bottom of the baking tin leaving space between the blobs, then add the caramel mixture in a similar way and finally the chocolate mixture. Use a table knife to swirl them together to create the marble effect.
  9. Place the cake in the oven and bake for 25-30mins or until golden on top and a skewer comes out clean. (It takes a bit longer because of the caramel)
  10. Cool the cake and enjoy!
