Liv Butter - Salted & Unsalted-001
My dear friend Doris, likes to tempt me with her bakings. Not tempting me with the eating of the food, but rather, more to inspire me to bake with her yummy bakings.

She mentioned about Nasi Lemak Lover cake and I assumed it was the Marbled Butter Cake. Turned out that she baked the Zebra Cake which was light and buttery, while I baked her Marbled Butter Cake, which was moist and buttery. We both liked the recipe we tried. Heehee.... The butter cake turns out to be really fragrant and moist. Even my children enjoyed it too!
Recipe for Marble Butter Cake, adapted from Nasi Lemak Lover.
(Makes a 8" round cake)

250g Liv salted butter, soften
150g Caster sugar
4 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla extract
230g Cake flour, sifted
1 1/2tsp Baking powder, sifted
60g Whipping cream (original was 4 tbsp milk)

1 tbsp Cocoa powder + 1/2 tsp coffee powder + 2 tbsp milk – mix together 


1. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until light and creamy.
2. Add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. After well combine, slightly increase speed and beat for 1min till fluffy.
3. Add the flour and baking powder (sifted together) and beat well to combine, fold whipping cream alternately and combine well.
4. Remove 250g of plain batter and place in another clean mixing bowl, mix well with cocoa mixture.
5. Spoon the two batters, plain and chocolate batter, alternately into the prepared cake pan. Using a skewer, gently swirl it around the mixture in the tin a few times to create a marbled effect. Tap the tin to remove any air bubbles.
6. Bake at preheated oven at 160C for 50-55mins or until a skewer insert and come out clean. 
7. Cool it completely before cutting.
