I love marble cake, so easy to make and even easier to eat! I haven’t made it for ages though and thought I’d have a go making one with an extra flavour element to it.
Vanilla, chocolate and peanut butter go so well together, not one flavour over powers the other and this is the perfect accompaniment to a large cuppa for an afternoon perk up, enjoy ♥

Vanilla, chocolate and Peanut Butter Marble Cake
150g soft butter/spread
175g caster sugar
175g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 eggs, lightly beaten
½ tsp vanilla extract
50g peanut butter
50g melted dark chocolate, slightly cooled
Preheat oven 180°C 160°C fan GM4
I used a loaf tin measuring 20 cm x 11 cm x 6.5 cm high. Lined the bottom and greased the sides
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, sieve in the flour and baking powder, add the eggs and beat until well combined and smooth.
Split the cake batter equally into 3 separate bowls. In one add the vanilla extract and stir through. In another stir through the melted chocolate, in the last bowl beat in the peanut butter.
Drop large spoonfuls of each flavoured cake batter into the prepared loaf tin. Making sure you make them slightly random throughout. Then give a swirl with a knife or skewer, or as I did, with the handle of a fork!
Bake for 40-45 minutes until just firm to the touch and a skewer comes out clear. Allow to cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes then turn out and cool completely on a cooling rack.
