Eggless Marble Loaf Cake / Chocolate & Vanilla Loaf Cake

I had this cake in my mind for quite a long time. Couple weeks back i decided to give it a try. Since it is eggless, then there is no fuss in the recipe. It calls for simple ingredients which you have in your fridge and pantry already.

The cool thing about this cake is you will be amazed each time. Because each time you will get new patterns in the cake. That is quite a exciting one. I specially loved the pattern which i got this time. It is quite good to look at. But do i need to say about the taste, it was amazing.

I loved the combo taste of chocolate just rippling through the vanilla flavour. The smell was so rich and yummy. You dont have to feel guilty in eating a slice or two. Because there is no butter in this. Just some plain oil is there. And all the moistness comes from the yogurt and water which we use. I hope you will try this out and let me know what you think.

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Baking Time : 40 to 50 mins
Makes : 20 cm loaf cake, Serves 5 to 6
Recipe Source : Divine Taste

All Purpose Flour / Maida  - 1 1 /2 cup / 180 grams
Cocoa Powder - 3 tblspn
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Hot water -  1/2 cup / 125 ml
Sugar - 1 cup / 200 grams
Oil - 1/2 cup / 125 ml
Yogurt - 1/2 cup / 125 ml
Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp


Preheat oven to 170 degree C / 340 Degree F.

Start by sifting flour, baking powder, baking soda. Set this aside.

Beat oil, sugar and vanilla til creamy.

Add in water and mix well. Add in flour mixture and mix till combined.

Add in yogurt and mix well.

Divide the batter into two equal portions. Add cocoa powder to one batter and mix well.

Butter a loaf pan generously and dust it with flour. Tap off the excess flour. Now the loaf pan is done.

Spoon the vanilla and cocoa batter alternatively into the pan.

Use a tooth pick and make swirls in the pan. Dont get over excited and do too much. Just stop at a point. If you work too much then you will not get the marbling effect.
Bake the cake in a preheated oven for 45 to 50 min. Insert a toothpick to see whether the cake is cooked.

Remove from the oven and cool it down.

Invert, slice and serve.

I just wanted to know whether i can substitute the 1/2cup yoghurt with 2 eggs. Will the texture be the same?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousI have never tried that way. So i am not sure whether it will work or not.

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

Which oil should i use? olive oil?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous Use vegetable oil, olive oil would be too strong

What can I substitute yogurt for?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousI think you can use milk and a tsp of vinegar or lemon juice. I have not tried it so far, i think it may work. If you ever try this, let me know through comments..So it will help others too

Can this cake be made with whole wheat flour also.If so any change in ingredients or measurements has to be made.Thanks in advance for your amazing collection of receipes.

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@AnonymousYou can make this with wheat flourbut the cake will be a little dense. You can use half flour and half wheat flour.
