Italian Mascarpone Marble Cake is a delicious soft cake, with the perfect hint of chocolate. The creamy Chocolate Glaze makes it perfect.
This Marble Cake with Mascarpone has become a favourite in our home, with or without glaze.
I have been baking up a storm for the past four or five months, writing a Cookbook is not an easy task. Especially when I also want to make lots of recipes for the blog too.
So needless to say sometimes mistakes happen. And I can now show you what happens when you forget baking powder in a cake recipe.
Big difference right? The cake without the baking powder, was extremely heavy and flat and even the colour was a bit off.
After about 20 minutes in the oven I looked in and I knew there was something wrong. It sure didn’t look the same as the other couple of times.
The first thing I thought of was baking powder, because I remembered measuring the flour but there was no whisk to be found lying around or in the sink.
Which means I added nothing to the flour and a flat cake was baked.

It’s a good thing this is an easy cake to make so naturally I made another one and decided to show you my mistake.
The second time this Italian Mascarpone Marble Cake was perfect. Especially with the simple chocolate glaze it makes the perfect after dinner dessert, a scoop of ice cream probably wouldn’t hurt either!
I hope you enjoy this Marble Cake and have a wonderful Christmas. Merry Christmas Everyone.
