Chocolate syrup Marble Cake ~ for the 2 month Kiddo

Yes, the kid Jr.A completed 2 months yesterday. Time truly flies... It seems like only yesterday we held our sweet lil bundle of joy and its already 2 months. Every moment has been etched in my heart and these beautiful days will never fade from memories. He teaches me something or the other every single day and I am learning to cope up with him. For the first month 'A' bought a cake and we had a small family get-together. But this month I decided to bake the cake at home and made a marble cake with Hershey's chocolate syrup for the chocolate batter since I didn't have cocoa powder at hand. Nevertheless the cake turned out perfect and tasted great too. The kid was blinking innocently over all the hooplah going around and we had a terrific time.

Thanks to all my loving readers who inquired about the lil' one. He is doing great and keeping me on the toes all time. I am in my mom's house and hence am finding time to blog and read since taking care of 'Aa' has been delegated to the mother *winks* with me poking in only half of the time.

The cake had a light, fluffy and spongy texture and the marble pattern stood out very well. Will I try this ~ Yes, I will with other flavored syrups.

~*What U Need*~
Maida - 1 cup
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Salt - a pinch(skip if using salted butter)
Sugar - 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp
Butter - 50 gms
Egg - 1
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Milk - 1/2 cup
Hershey's chocolate syrup - 1/4 cup minus 1 tbsp

How I Made It:

Grease a cake tin of any choice. Sieve together maida, baking powder and baking soda thrice. Cream butter and sugar till fluffy.

Add the egg and beat well till light. Add milk and beat well. To this add the flour mixture and fold gently.

Divide the batter into 2 equal parts. To one part add the chocolate syrup and mix well. Pour the Vanilla mixture into the the tin. Then drop the chocolate batter over the vanilla batter. Using a knife, swirl the cocoa batter into the vanilla batter to give it a marble effect.

Bake in a preheated oven for 40 mins at 180 deg C. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

My Notes:
** Adjust the amount of chocolate syrup that goes into the cake as per your preference.
** If you add in more reduce the quantity of sugar in the chocolate batter so that it does not become overly sweet.
** U can substitute the chocolate syrup with strawberry or caramel syrup. Next in line are these flavors.

Slice and enjoy.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
