  • Put the butter, caster sugar, 4 eggs, self-raising flour, milk and vanilla extract into a food processor and let it run for 2 mins until smooth.
  • Divide the mixture between 2 bowls. Stir 2 tbsp cocoa powder into the mixture in one of the bowls. Spoon the chocolate and vanilla mixture alternatively into the tin.
  • When all the mixture has been used up, tap the bottom of the tin on the surface to ensure that there aren’t any air bubbles.
  • Use a skewer or a knife and swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect.
  • Bake the cake for 55 mins until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  • Place the cake onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.

N.B: The cake can keep for up to 3 days. Or you can freeze it for later consumption.
