Quick and easy marbled plumcake recipe
Marbled plumcake : this dessert that originally began as a "zebra ring" is perfect for breakfast. I have always liked it, first of all because it is cute and secondly because despite being scenographic it is so easy to perform like few others. I dedicate this recipe to my daughter, perhaps I have never told you about it because I am very reserved and I believe that my private life does not interest those looking for a quick recipe, but today's dessert is just for her! Alessandra is already 3 years old and it is at that age where she will carry some memories with her throughout her life, not only the visual memories but also the perfumes, a bit like I clearly remember the scent of the ragù that my grandmother prepared , so I would like you to remember clearly the scent of Sunday sweets, and one day, smelling the scent of sweets, she will remember when on Sunday morning she found her homemade breakfast on the table. Thanks to this plum cake that reminds her of the zebra, I was rewarded with a smile and a "soft kiss with abbravery strong football”(As she says) of those who make you melt! But now let's go cooking !!

Ingredients for 1 plumcake mold of 23 cm
- 250 grams of flour 00
- 150 grams of sugar
- 120 ml of whole milk
- 70 ml of corn oil (or 100 g of melted butter
- 30 gr of unsweetened cocoa (but I used Nesquik)
- 2 eggs
- 1 sachet of baking powder
- 1 sachet of vanillin
How to make the marbled Plumcake
Turn on the oven at 180 ° so while you prepare the cake the oven will be already hot and prepare all the ingredients on the work surface.
Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer
add the oil and milk and mix with a whisk
then pour 220 g of flour into the bowl (keep 30 g aside to use later). Mix well and add the sifted yeast and vanilla. and stir again with the spoon.
Now divide the mixture into two parts, I used two identical bowls so I adjusted easily (otherwise even two identical plates can be fine).
In a bowl put the 30 grams of flour that you have kept aside and in the other bowl put the bitter cocoa, I used Nesquik, mix the contents of each bowl, and start pouring a few spoonfuls inside the pan, alternating the two doughs,
when you have finished the mixture you can use a fork and create some vortex by taking the mixture from the bottom upwards.
Bake at 170 degrees for about 35-40 minutes. Check at the end of cooking with the toothpick test.
NB To prevent it from becoming too dark on the surface after about 10-15 minutes of cooking, place a grill on the upper level with a sheet of aluminum foil resting on it, so that the direct heat is muffled. Remove the foil almost at the end of cooking.
And your marbled / zebra plum cake is ready. Enjoy your meal!
PERFECT MATCH: Milk and coffee or hot tea with lemon.
