  • 2 Cups All purpose Flour

  • 2 tsp Cocoa Powder/Coffee
  • 1 Tbs Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Milk

  • In a Mixing Bowl mix the flour and Baking powder ,or you can use a sieve to make sure its mixed nicely.
  • Then add sugar and eggs to the bowl ,Mix it thoroughly.
  • Add the Vanilla extract .
  • Now add the milk to the batter and mix it with hand .
  • You can use a electric mix or Regular Mixer/blender to give it a good stir.
  • Now add the nuts to it .
  • To half of the mix add Cocoa powder and to the remaing half add yellow colour.
  • Grease and flour a 9 inch round/square pan.
  • Pour the Cocoa batter and the yellow batter to the pan.
  • Using a knife, swirl the cocoa batter into the yellow batter to incorporate it in a marble effect.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, until a inserted knife comes out clean.
Just drop in some chocolate chips if you have on top or grate a chocolate on top of the batter before putting it in oven to add the special effect.I didn't have time for icing so used some M&m's.Be as much creative as u can..enJOY :)
