Marble Cake

I mentioned when I shared the Mocha Coffee Cake with Espresso Glaze my friend’s daughter, Saavani, loved the cake and wanted me to bake a cake for her. I decided to #FireUpYourOven" to make the same cake.

Disaster struck in the form of “NO COFFEE”! 

Being Dhulivandan or Rang Panchmi the day we play colours, all the shops were closed. That is when I decided to make a Marble cake.

A slight change in the ingredients and method gave me such a delicious and soft rich marble cake quite unlike the once I have eaten in the past.

Made me wonder why on earth I used to think that making a Marble Cake is beyond my capabilities.

This last month has been a wonderful journey with my friends, who like me have been preparing for this beautiful Mega Marathon that we have had. With a heavy heart I bid adieu to this series only to be back with more delicious bakes that I will make from my friends blogs.  For if I thought I will shrink the size of my bookmark list I am mistaken its grown by leaps and bounds!
