Marbled Chocolate and Vanilla Ring

Elijah kept screaming cake, and for his want, made this brilliantly soft cake. And by evening except for two pieces to satisfy my son's needs, took the whole thing over on our visit to a dear family friend and their two daughters....nothing like sharing something with people you love..especially when you bake with love.

Plain flour - 175gms
Butter - 175gms
Castor Sugar - 175gms
Eggs - 3
Baking Powder - 1tbs
Vanilla Essence - 1tsp
Cocoa powder - 2tbs
Milk - 2tbs

Sieve the flour and baking powder and keep aside. Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy and add in the eggs one by one and beat well. Add in the sifted flour little by little and continue to beat well. Transfer half the mixture into a separate bowl. Mix the cocoa powder and milk into one bowl mixture. Add vanilla to the other bowl mixture and mix evenly. Alternate tablespoonfuls into the the prepared, greased ring tin/ bundt tin. Lightly swirl with palette-knife to give a marbled effect. Bake in a preheated oven for 40-50minutes at 160C. Leave to cool in the tin for 10minutes, then turn out onto wire rack to finish off cooling. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
