Every once in a while I like to experiment with new recipes. I read this Coffee Marble Cake recipe a very long time ago and I have this habit of saving any interesting recipe as a word document. The problem is that by doing this I lost the source. So I apologize about not being able to provide the original source of this recipe.
I like the simplicity of this recipe. At the first glance I thought it would be perfect for breakfast. And after trying it, it has become one of my favorites.
This Coffee Marble Cake is super moist and delicious, thanks to the yogurt. The fact that it has coffee is the icing on top.
You will need:
- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Butter, 4 ounces
- 1 cup Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 3 Eggs
- 1 cup Yogurt
- 1/4 cup Instant Coffee
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Prepare a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan by either greasing it or by using parchment paper.
In a medium bowl mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set it aside.
In large bowl, using a hand mixer, mix together the butter and sugar.
Add the vanilla extract and keep mixing until its light and fluffy.
Start adding the eggs one at a time.
After the third egg is mixed in, the batter should look like this.
Now start alternating the flour mixture and the yogurt. Start and finish with the flour mixture.
So first add around 2 tablespoons of flour.
Then add around one tablespoon of yogurt.
Keep alternating between both until you use the whole amount and get a smooth batter.
Remove around 1 cup of the cake batter and place it in a separate bowl. Then add the instant coffee to it and mix it all well.
In the prepared loaf pan, add half of the cake batter.
Then add the coffee cake batter.
Then the rest of the cake batter.
Bake the cake for 1 hour and 15 mins. Until tester inserted comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool completely, then slice and serve.
Happy cooking, and as we say in Arabic “Sahha Wi Afia”
