|Marble Rainbow Cake- for Eid Celebration|
|The view from top -as colourful as the RAINBOW, hence the name.|
315g of unsalted butter ( I used SCS and Lurpak)- they were available in my fridge
1 cup - caster sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
2 1/2 cup of self-raising flour ( sifted)
1-2 tsp of apple green colour
1 -2 tsp of red and pink colour -combine this to get the desired colour as seen in my picture
4 tbs of evaporated milk ( I used Ideal from Nestle)
* If you should use salted butter, omit salt in the recipe
* I don't used vanilla essence in this recipe- I want the taste of a buttery cake
** Preheat oven -150C (7-8 mins)
1) In a stainless steel bowl, cream butter and sugar well- 4 to 5 mins,
medium speed using hand mixer
2) Add in salt. Add in eggs, one by one- combine well.
3) Add in flour, go slowly, by three to four batches - mix well
4) Add in evaporated milk, combine well. Divide mixture into three parts. Colour one part of the cake mixture- green, another part the combination of pink and red. The last part should be in the original colour.
5) Grease your baking pan with butter and line with parchment paper.
6) Pour the original colour mixture into the baking pan. Put dollops of green mixture in certain parts of the baking pan, then put the red mixture, as well. After that, put dollops of the original mixture. Combine the three colours by mixing them well using a rubber spatula, so that you would have a rainbow colour cake as seen from the picture.7) Put your baking tray into the oven. The cake would take about 25-30 mins depending on the size of your baking tray. Test if your cake is ready by inserting a skewer. If the cake is ready, the skewer will come out clean.
** Cut into squares and serve them with a cup of black coffee. Then you will know that you are coming home... hmmmm
