So the next cake request from my work colleagues was for a marbled chocolate loaf. I actually ended up coming across a recipe for Marbled Chocolate Cupcakes which looked really straight forward to make, so here it is….

Serves 12 in muffin cases


  • 175g soft margarine
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 175g self raising flour
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 55g melted chocolate (I used Green & Blacks Dark Choc)


  • Put 12 muffin cases in a muffin pan
  • Put the margarine, sugar, eggs, flour & milk in a large bowl & use an electric hand whisk, beat together until smooth. Tip: to stop the flour going up in a white cloud I used my hands to mix the sugar, marg & flour first, before adding the wet ingredients.
  • Divide the mixture between 2 bowls.  Add the melted chocolate (melt for 45 seconds in the microwave) & stir together until well mixed.  Using a teaspoon alternatie the chocolate mixture with the plain mixture, put four teaspoons into each muffin case.
  • Bake the cupcakes in a preheated oven 180C for 20 minutes or until well risen & springy to touch. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Marbled Chocolate Cupcakes
  • Enjoy with a cuppa tea!

Verdict – yum scrum!
