Eggless Marble loaf




A tea cake simply elevates a humble cup of tea to the next level. I always prefer loaf cakes over heavily frosted cakes as the real fun is in the sponge in my opinion. This perfect marble cake is my go-to recipe for a quick loaf cake. Just bringing the vanilla and chocolate together along with a few swirls brings in the mystical magic to this beautiful cake

  • 2 tablespoons corn flour
