Yesterday my daughter came home with this modern art marble cake, and of course I just had to share it with you as maybe crafting with some batter might be a fun project to do with your kids, or even yourself during a quiet moment in the kitchen!
I love the dramatic swirls in this cake, and the fact that no icing is required. You can really make a cake like this with the batter ingredients of your choice as long as the two batters are distinctly white and chocolate, or even some other color, wow, that could be something, namely if you color with natural food colors of course, or something like raspberry syrup.
How To Make Modern Art Marble Cake:
- Start with white cake batter and chocolate cake batter. You'll want to use a recipe that you know produces a nice flat cake.
- You can make this cake in small individual pans, square looks great, or as a larger cake, in which case I'd go with round.
- Fill one cup with white batter and one cup with chocolate batter.
- Pour small amounts of batter into the pan in the following manner: pour a puddle of white batter, and then pour a smaller puddle of chocolate batter on top of that white batter puddle. The puddles start to swirl naturally and no toothpick or fork manuvering is required. Continue in this manner until the pan is roughly half filled with batter, height wise.
- Bake and enjoy your edible modern art.
- If you make a large cake in this manner one certainly could add some strawberries or cherries (adhered with whipped cream or icing) around the perimeter and in the middle to make is just a bit fancier.
