Marble Cake recipe

this recipe sounds nice“PERFECT CAKE”
½ cup (125g) butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1¾ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ cup milk

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the beaten eggs, then the sifted flour and baking powder. Lastly add the milk.
Bake at 180ºC for about 30 minutes.
Variation: This is a basic mix that can be varied to make a chocolate cake, lemon cake, orange, marble cake, or…. e.g. for a Coffee Cake - add 2 tbsp coffee essence and adjust the milk quantity to be ½ cup minus 2 tbsp.

I agree with korbo that "Bushells liquid coffee is the secret", and I also used it to make a simple icing using icing sugar, butter, the Bushell's Coffee and Chicory Essence and boiling water (sorry I don't have quantities for the icing as they are/were always a guesstimate).

Hope that helps. :-))
