This is the best marble cake I have ever tasted. I baked for my Hari Raya (muslim celebration) party and received so many compliments. At first I was sceptical because it didn't use any baking powder but it baked well and I even put some in muffin tray (12 pcs) and my children finished them all in 15 mins.
