Compromise and Marble Cake

I don't know how it happened but I married a man who doesn't like chocolate cake!  Andy likes chocolate cookies, chocolate candies, and hot chocolate but not chocolate cake.  I, on the other hand, love it!

Fortunately, we've found a happy compromise with Mary Berry's Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Loaf Cake.  This is a beautiful cake and very easy to bake.

As with all Mary Berry recipes, you know you are going to get simple to follow instructions and clever techniques.  

For example, how to turn one big bowl of batter into two different flavours! 

There is just enough chocolate to make me happy and moist vanilla cake for Andy.  Click HERE FOR MARY BERRY'S MARBLE LOAF RECIPE

Of course, I haven't mentioned the best part about making this cake - you get two delicious bowls to lick!  


  1. A marble loaf cake, delicious, I make that one sometimes too. The vanilla bowl is always for Snarf to lick, I'll take the chocolate one.

  2. OH MY GOODNESS!!!! This looks like heaven on a plate!!! I have yet to bake a marble cake but I would love to try this one! We love our cake over here!!! Thank you for sharing this one friend....glad you both found a compromise! And I hope that you are having a lovely weekend! Nicole xoxo

  3. Looks gorgeous! Chocolate cake in any form is yum!

  4. Our husbands share that same quality! Kevin, YOUR brother, the choc-a-holic who cannot get enough chocolate ever, does not like chocolate cake. I found this so hard to believe that it took me years (we're talking like more than 10 years) to comprehend that. I would be so excited to make him a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for his birthday, only to have him remind me once again that he doesn't like chocolate cake. This cake seems like the perfect balance, and truthfully, I'm more of a yellow cake kind of girl anyway. :) xoxo
