Marble Cake

One of my all time favourite cakes is Marble Cake. The ingredients is simple yet the taste is delicious! My father enjoys Marble Cake very much since he's not a chocolate cake enthusiast and he likes it just as it is, no cream, no topping. Just plain, simple marble cake. Maybe because he himself is not a complicated person. here is a recipe for you to try, especially to those who are firstimer in baking cakes, this is the suitable cake to start with. Enjoy!
