| Marble Cake
A truly elegant affair
Try it with cream or chocolate sauce
Chocolate and orange sponges make a very tasty combination-you can use any flavors you like but dark and light look best.
8oz/225g. Sponge mix
2 eggs size 4
2 tbs/30ml cocoa
Juice and zest of one
6oz/175g. Bitter chocolate
3-4 tbsp thick cream
1 Divide sponge mix between 2 bowls
Add 1 egg, cocoa and 2-3tbsp. water. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add second egg to other bowl with the orange zest and 2-3 tbsp. juice. Beat to same consistency.
2 Spoon the mixtures into the microwave dish alternately, swirling the colors. Flatten the top and bake on High for 4-5 minutes, turning several times for ovens without turn tables.
Leave to stand 5-7 minutes. Melt the chocolate and butter together on Medium for 3.4 minutes, until just melted. Cool slightly and stir in the cream. Turn cake out and place on a rack over a tray. Coat cake generously with warm sauce, leave 3-4 hours to set and serve sliced. Keep any remaining cake well wrapped.
