Tips and Tricks for Making Marble Cake

It is best to finish it off with chocolate ganache or chocolate frosting. Moreover, you can substitute buttermilk with a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar whenever buttermilk is unavailable in your local supermarket. Also, make sure to measure all the ingredients precisely. Thus, it is ideal to use a kitchen scale to measure the dry ingredients, especially the all-purpose flour, accurately. In addition to that, it would be best if you spooned it into a cup. Remember to measure then level it.

Additionally, you can store marble cake in the refrigerator for weeks. Furthermore, you can chill the cake layers in the freezer for around twenty minutes before you begin assembling your marble cake. Doing this makes it easier to frost and stack.

Tips and Tricks for Making Marble Cake

To ensure that the cake layers are fluffy and tender, mix the cake batter till the ingredients are well incorporated. Moreover, keep in mind that your cake pans should have an equal amount of cake batter, especially if you put a spoonful of batter in rounds. For this reason, put a spoonful of vanilla into each cake pan. Afterward, put a spoonful of chocolate into each cake pan. After that, repeat it till you have used up all your cake batter.

Before removing the cake from the cake pan, remember to let the cake cool on a wire rack for about thirty minutes. Hence, it will prevent the bottom of the cake from sticking to the cake pan.
