Marble Cake for Vegans (Eggless and Dairy Free)

"I bought a new benchtop mixer and wanted to make something quick, easy but still special. I saw a recipe for an old favourite, the marble cake but as a vegan I needed to make some changes... So here it is for everyone else to enjoy! Frost as desired or simply sprinkle with icing sugar!"

<p>I love, love, love to cook. Most of all I love to cook for friends and family because it is such an awesome feeling to bring the people that mean the most to me through such an essential ingredient for life... FOOD! I am a vegan the switch opened up the world of cooking in a way I never imagined! People constantly ask me 'what do you eat?' and I can confidently tell them that if they were to leave meat and dairy behind they would find an enormous world of food out there that they have never heard of! And it is all more delicious and nourishing than animal products. My ultimate goal is to shake my 9 to 5 office job and become a caterer or open my own restaurant and I am forever dreaming of my big lottery win that will allow me to do this.</p>
