Easy Marble Cake with Chocolate Ganache, a delicious moist chocolate and vanilla marble cake with a simple chocolate ganache. Fresh fruit makes it perfect!
Here I am at Easter Weekend, deciding whether it was too late or not to share this Easy Marble Cake that I discovered not too long ago from my love of all things British!
I am a die hard fan of The British Bake Off, and thank goodness here in Italy it is a big hit too! I love it. I also love the Italian version too. I love seeing what people can Bake up.
I actually made this recipe a few months ago and of course a couple of times since then. I discovered this Marble Cake from the BBC Good Food site. What sold me on it was that I could whip it up in my food processor! Yup, that’s right, if you don’t have one, no problem beaters work too.
I did share an Easter Nest Cake a couple of weeks ago, my kind of cake with lots of buttery frosting, but it seems this cake is the cake that the rest of my family appreciates more.
Easy Marble Cake with Chocolate Ganache
Simple and perfect with either a dusting of Powdered Sugar or a drizzle of Chocolate Ganache. One of those cakes I remember my Mom serving on Sunday or when we had company and she would ask “would you like coffee and Dessert”?
Whatever dessert you decide to serve I hope you have a Delicious and Happy Easter. Buon Appetito and Enjoy!

**Self rising flour - sift flour and then whisk in 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
In a food processor add flour, butter, sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Process for approximately 2 minutes until combined. Separate into 2 bowls, one bowl add cocoa and combine well.
(If you do not have a food processor then beat the butter and sugar together, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Fold in the flour, milk and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth).
Spoon alternately the vanilla and chocolate batter into the prepared cake pan, even the top with a spatula and with the tip of a knife swirl it in the batter to make a marble effect. Bake for approximately 50 minutes (start to check at 40-45 minutes with a toothpick for doneness. Let cool completely before drizzling with Ganache.
In a small pan heat butter and cream until hot but not boiling, remove from heat and add the chocolate stir until smooth, let cool and thicken before drizzling.
