Of late, I have been so crazy of baking this makes me to search for unique recipes from blogger friend's space. I have saved more than 100 blogs which I visit almost everyday, so one of the blog I visit without fail is Priya Ranjit's Cook Like Priya. The other day I saw Priya posted an unique cake baked with whole wheat flour and custard flour, I told myself I'm definitely trying this recipe no matter what as I had all the ingredients needed for this cake in my pantry. Thank you so much Priya for sharing such a wonderful cake with us.
This is a special cake and would be loved by people who are health concious and looking for a light and fluffy cake. Let's look at how to make this cake;
1 and 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour/atta
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of custard powder
2 tbsp of cocoa powder
1 and 1/4 tsp of baking soda
1 and 1/2 cup of milk
3 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 tsp of vanilla extract
3/4 cup of sugar
Sift baking soda, whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and custard powder and set aside.
In a mixing bowl add sugar, oil, vanilla extract, milk and mix until the sugar is almost dissolved. Slowly add in the dry ingredients little by little until it forms a smooth batter. Now take out 1/4 part of the batter and mix the cocoa powder to it ( I have mixed cocoa powder with little milk).
I have used a loaf pan to make this cake, you can use any cake pan of your choice. Butter the sides of the loaf pan and pour all the original batter to this pan, then pour the chocolate batter in the middle of the original batter and make swirl with a chopstick or knife to form the marble effect to the cake.
Bake the cake in pre-heated oven (pre-heat for 10 minutes) for 150 to 180 degrees depending on your oven's requirement for 35- 40 minutes. The most important part of baking this cake is that you have to leave the cake for minimum 2 hours or overnight to have soft and fluffy cake.
Unmould the cake and cut into slices and our Custard Marble Cake is ready to be served. Do try and I'm sure that you will love it!
