Heat oven to 180°C. You then grease bottoms only of 2 (20 or 23cm) round cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.

You’ll also need some baking powder. If you’re using an electric whisk, a teaspoonful should be fine; if you’re using a processor, add a bit more – about 1½ teaspoonfuls.

The method is just as simple. Sieve the flour and baking powder together, add the sugar, margarine and eggs, and whisk (or blend in a processor). Easy peasy.

Continue, scraping down the sides occasionally, until you have a well-combined mixture that will drop off a spoon when tapped. If it seems a little stodgy, add a tiny drop of milk.

Seperate into 2 bowls, add the cocoa powder and mix together.

Spoon yellow and chocolate cake batters alternately into pans, dividing evenly. Cut through batters with table knife in zigzag pattern for marbled design.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling racks 15 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely, top sides up, about 1 hour.

On a serving plate, place 1 cake, rounded side down (trim rounded side if necessary so cake rests flat). Spread with 55 grams frosting. Top with second cake, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting.
