Marmorkage

Marmorkage

If you follow my blog it should be pretty obvious to you that I love Marmorkage (Marble Cake) since I have already written about this cake twice before (here and here). So why another Marmorkage on the blog? Well this time the presentation of the cake is a little more festive since I am using a bundt pan and the recipe has yogurt and cream in it which gives the cake a little extra moisture. I also increased the cocoa amount slightly from two to three tablespoons and quite frankly I think I’ll bump it up even more next time around…because I can…and because I love chocolate.

Marmorkage – Marble Cake

Ingredients:

200 g salted butter (7 oz), room temperature

250 g sugar (8.8 oz)

4 eggs

250 g all-purpose flour (8.8)

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons vanilla sugar or beans from 1 vanilla pod

200 g plain greek yogurt (7 oz)

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

2 tablespoons whipping cream

Directions:

Spray bundt pan with baking spray, toss a little flour around to coat the pan and then bang out excess flour, set pan aside. Preheat oven to 340 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Beat butter and sugar on high speed until soft and creamy, 5-10 minutes. Add eggs one at the time, beating well after each egg. Sift flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar together. Alternate adding flour and yogurt mixing on low speed, blend only until incorporated.

Place 1/2 of batter into a second bowl. Sift cocoa powder into this 1/2 of the batter and fold the cocoa into the batter until homogeneous. You now have a bowl with white batter and one with cocoa batter. Drop spoonfuls of alternating white and brown batter into your prepared bundt pan, smooth top out before baking. Bake cake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan and then invert out onto serving plate. Enjoy!

Marble Cupcake

Marble Cupcake

I have had a terrible craving for Marmorkage (Marble Cake), which is like a dear childhood friend to me. But I wanted it in a smaller format, like cupcakes. I found this one recipe with looked “oh so good” but unfortunately the result was a really bland tasting cupcake. I then pulled out Martha Stewart’s Cupcake book, hoping she might have a Marble cupcake in there, and thankfully she did 🙂 You can always count on Martha and she definitely knows her craft! The cupcakes turned out sweet, soft and very tasty. Although it is almost a shame to cover up these pretty cupcakes, I must admit that a chocolate frosting does seem to complete them, but of course that’s optional. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Marble Cupcakes (makes 16 cupcakes)

Ingredients for Cupcakes:

1 3/4 cups cake flour, sifted, not self-rising (210 gram)

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup milk, room temperature (78 ml)

1/3 cup heavy cream, room temperature (78 ml)

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature (113 gram)

1 cup sugar (222 gram)

3 large eggs, room temperature

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder (30 gram)

1/4 cup boiling water (60 ml)

Ingredients for Chocolate Frosting:

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate (120 grams), coarsely chopped

2/3 cup unsalted butter (150 grams), room temperature

1 1/3 cups confectioners sugar (160 grams), sifted

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions for Cupcakes:

Line muffin pan with paper liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 degrees C).

Sift together cake flour, baking powder and salt, set aside. Combine milk and cream, set aside. Using an electrical mixer, beat butter and sugar on high until pale yellow and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beat until incorporated. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Beat in vanilla extract. Add flour in three increments, alternating with the milk mixture. Beat until combined.

To make chocolate batter. Measure out one generous cup of batter, place in small bowl. In a separate small dish combine cocoa powder and boiling water, whisk until smooth. Stir cocoa mixture into reserved batter until fully combined.

Fill prepared cup liner with alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate batter, filling each three-quarters full. Run a skewer through the batter in a figure-eight motion to make swirls. Bake until tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean, approximately 20 minutes. Transfer muffin pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Directions for Frosting:

Melt chocolate over a hot water bath. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

In the bowl of an electrical mixer, beat butter until smooth and creamy (about 1 minute). Add confectioners sugar and beat until smooth and light (about 2 minutes). Add vanilla extract and chocolate, beat on low speed until incorporated. Increase speed to medium high and beat until frosting is smooth and glossy (2-3 minutes).

Pipe or spread frosting onto cupcakes. Enjoy!
