A little glimpse into my daily life

    My first time baking marble cake

    “Bake it till you make it!”

    Happy weekend my angels! I hope you are having a good time. We are having a very relaxing time here in Scotland and haven’t got much panned for this weekend, which is quite nice. My man and his siblings are out surfing. It makes me so happy that they are able to do that and to get out of the house even if it’s just for a couple of hours. It is such a great way for them to spend some fun quality time together.

    Although it’s a relaxing weekend I still have a couple of things I would love to do and finish off before we are starting a new week. Today I wanted to try out a new recipe and share it with you angels if it was a success, and oh yes it was – it’s a delicious gluten free marble cake!

    I am really getting good at baking with gluten free flour, since my mans sister is gluten intolorent, so since we got here to Scotland 7 weeks ago I have at least 4-5 times pr week baked with gluten free flour, and I now know how to work it perfectly. I actually really like baking with gluten free, and it might be something I will continue with after this – I feel like the cakes are much lighter than with regular flour. SO angels, let’s get baking shall we?!


    It’s an easy and simple recipe which I love! All you need is:

    1½ cups all Gluten free self raising flour

    3 egg whites

    3 egg yolks

    ½ cup vegetable oil

    ¾ cup sugar

    1½ tsp vanilla

    ⅓ cup milk

    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

    + Extra 2 tbsp sugar for chocolate batter

    Step by step

    Start by preheating your oven to 160°C

    Prepare your loaf pan with baking paper and grease it with butter, so that the cake doesn’t stick

    Place egg whites in a medium bowl and the yolks in separate large bowl

    With an electric hand mixer on high, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks

    To the egg yolks add oil, sugar & vanilla. Beat on high speed for about a minute

    With the mixer on low, add milk, then slowly add your sifted flour

    Using a spoon gently fold egg whites into the mixture egg yolks flower mix

    Place about ⅔ cup of the batter into the empty egg white bowl. Fold in cocoa powder and the extra 2 table spoons of sugar

    First start by adding a layers of the vanilla mixture, and then the chocolate, then vanilla etc. till you are out of batter

    Then find a small stick and with zik zak movement move it from top to bottom in the loaf tin – this is how you create the marble effect

    Then put your loaf in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes

    How cute does it look inside? This marble cake is wonderful. Easy to bake and super tasty and not too sweet. I would serve it with coffee, some whipped cream and fresh berries. I can’t wait to have my second slice after posting this blogpost, haha! I am sure you will love it, and it’s also really fun to bake because of the two different layers.

    It is also a wonderful cake to bake if you have friends and family visiting. As soon as everything is back to normal and we can have our friends over again – this is the first cake I am going to bake, because it looks really fun and delicious <3

    Let me know if you decide to bake it, and how you like it. I wish you all a wonderful Sunday and happy baking – Wuhuuuu.. Enjoy my angels! xxx
