First you make a vanilla maderia cake, then you split the mixture and add cocoa to one half. Gently swirl it together in the cake tin before you bake it to get a lovely marbled effect.
Something else. don't know if it was my oven but i had to cook it a little longer. just kept my eye on it until skewer was clean.. worked out around 40 minutes. just start checking from 30 just incase. i also used self raising flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. worked perfectly. - 26 Jul 2010

nice recipe but id rather use traditional way of mixing butter with sugar first as when i made this it went lumpy and took ages to smooth it out. - 07 Feb 2010
