Ah, this had so much promise.
My sister and I decided to make a chocolate orange marble cake over the weekend. But not only did it lack the marbled effect, it didn't taste of chocolate either!
So what went wrong?
We followed the sponge cake part of the recipe from this website to keep it simple. When it came to pouring the separate cake mixtures of orange and chocolate into the pan though, we weren't quite sure how to do it - so we just kind of took it in turns to dump alternate mixtures in. I used a chopstick to swirl it around a bit before putting it into the oven.
As you can see though, there was no marbling to be seen - more like random dark blobs acting like they're not meant to be there instead! It didn't help matters that the chocolate bits didn't taste very chocolatey. At all.
But if you ignore the fact that this was meant to be a chocolate orange marble cake, this was still a success - as it made for a delicious orange cake instead ;-)
