Marble Cake
What You Need:
  • 9 oz flour
  • 1 tablespoon flour or ground almonds
  • 1 level teaspoon salt
  • ½ oz yeast
  • 4 oz butter
  • 2 oz caster sugar
  • 3 standard eggs
  • ¼ pint tepid milk
  • 4 oz washed and dried raisins
  • 1 - 1½ oz blanched almonds
  • Grated rind of 1 lemon

  • How To Cook:
    1. Sift the flour and salt into a warmed bowl. Mix yeast with a teaspoonful of the sugar and the milk.

    2. Make a well in the center of the flour and pour in the yeast mixture.

    3. Sprinkle with a little flour, cover with a cloth and set in a warm place to "prove."

    4. Butter a 'guglhupf' mould (a fluted ring mould), generously sprinkle with the blanched almonds cut into strips, then sprinkle with flour or ground almonds.

    5. Melt the butter gently in a warm place.

    6. When the yeast mixture begins to bubble, mix well with the flour, adding remaining sugar and the lightly beaten eggs.

    7. Beat well with a wooden spoon or the hand, gradually adding the tepid melted butter. Beat until the mixture leaves spoon and sides of the bowl clean.

    8. Stir in the raisins and the grated lemon rind. Place mixture in prepared mould, which should be about two-thirds full.

    9. Set in a warm place to rise. When the mixture has risen to within ½ inch of the top of the tin, put the cake on a baking tray and place in a hot oven (425°F, mark 7), turning the heat down to mark 5 after 5 minutes.

    10. Bake for about 40 minutes in all until the cake feels firm on top when pressed and is a good golden-brown color.

    11. Turn out on to a wire cooling tray and dust thickly with icing sugar while the cake is still warm.
