Mini Marble Cakes covered with chocolate

Sometimes simple is the best. I make so many complex recipes, but sometimes the homemade cakes are the ones we love the most.

This is exactly the case for my marble cake, rich in chocolate and butter that has become a favorite among our friends.

This time I decided to make it in my favorite mold whose creation was my joint project with Silikomart. You can read more about this amazing project here.

Of course it can be prepared in any other form you choose, for example mini Kugelhopf mold.

150 g (2/3 cup) cream
150 g (10 Tbs) butter, softened
190 g (1 cup) sugar
1/2 vanilla bean
3 eggs
225 g (2 cups) self-rising flour

3. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, sugar and vanilla until obtain a light and fluffy preparation.

4. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

5. Sift half the flour over butter mixture. Stir to combine. Add half the cream. Stir to combine. Repeat with remaining flour and cream.

6. Take 5-6 spoons of this mixture and add to the chocolate and cream mixture. Mix until combined.

7. Put each mixture in a separate pastry bag.

8. Pipe into the mould a layer of “white” mixture, on this layer pipe “brown” mixture and finish with another layer of “white” mixture.

9. Bake for about 30 minutes.

10. Cool to room temperature. Take cakes out of the mold.

11. Melt and temper the chocolate.

    Hi Sharon,
    Is it single or double cream that should be used?
    In the list of ingredients you mention cream twice? So do we need 300g in total?
    Thank you!
    Lots of love from London 😃

        Thank you, Sharon! What kind of cream is it – single cream or double (heavy) cream? 😃

    Hello Sharon,

    I jusy just bought the mold and I’m a little bit dissapointed 🙁 The marble cake was so solft and was almost imposibile to get out of the mold. I’ve read The recipe manny times and the only “mistake ” I’ve made is that i’ve started with the brown layer and not with the white one…
    I also put the cake in the fridge (with the mold) and tried to get it out next morning but the tree ar not looking so good 🤣
    Do you have any advice for me ?
