Gluten Free Marble Cake recipe

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a cake tin or use baking paper.
In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs and butter. Make sure the butter is soft. Pour half of it into the tin.
Add the cocoa powder to the remaining mixture and mix until it’s all chocolatey. Pour the chocolate mix into the cake tin.
Using a spoon or chopstick, mix the two batter until it’s all swirly and prettily mixed.
Bake for around 45 minutes. Check the centre with a skewer to see if it’s cooked. Leave to cool and serve!
Here’s a few tips I have discovered along the way about baking gluten free cakes:
- If you are new to cooking for a gluten-intolerant person, then be sure to use clean equipment and unopened ingredients, to avoid cross contamination.
- Be sure to watch the cooking times, too long and it dries out quick.
- Leave to cool in tin for 10 minutes or so before getting out of pan.
- Gluten free cakes can go stale quicker than normal so be sure to keep in an air-tight container.
- You can cook them in a muffin tin, use some and then freeze the rest.
