I’ve made butter cake before and I really love it very much. Such an easy recipe and so easily adaptable into marble cakes. Recently I wanted to make a marble cake and found that I only had 2 eggs!
Do you know how that feels? That sinking feeling, that deep disappointment, that horrible longing….. but ha! Google exists for a good reason. 😛 So I found a pretty well-reviewed recipe and I texted my mom if she wanted a chocolate marble cake or a coffee one. I didn’t have to make the call because I knew even before the call got through. Who am I kidding. Mom = coffee any day.
What’s your favourite loaf cake recipe? I want to try making more loaf cakes because they are some of the easiest.
Have a nice day!
“He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.’ (Proverbs 21:21)
- 2 cups Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder

- 1 cup White Sugar
- ½ cup Butter, softened
- 2 Eggs
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 tbsp Instant Coffee Powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.

- Whisk in dry ingredients until combined.
- Spoon out ⅓ of batter and fold in coffee milk mixture.
- In the remaining ⅔ of the batter, mix in reserved equal amount of milk set aside earlier.
- Layer the batters into the loaf pan. (I did 4 layers with both batters alternating twice.
- Use a skewer or chopstick and swirl the batter around to create the marble effect.

- Leave to fully cool and serve with a dusting of icing sugar.
