Preparation time: 40+ min
For 12 servings
400 g flour
150 g brown sugar
3 tsp baking soda
550 ml plant milk
300 ml applesauce
2 tsp vanilla paste
100 ml oil
For brown batter
3 tbs raw cocoa
5 tbs plant milk
Put the dry ingredients into a large bowl and the wet ingredients into a small one and mix them separately.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together.
Take one-half of the batter and add it to another bowl. Add cacao and additional milk to the other half to make one dark batter.
You can use a round baking tray or a rectangular one. Line it with baking paper.
There are different ways of creating marble. You can spoon the batter in, adding one spoon of the light batter and one spoon of the dark one, repeating the process until you run out of batter. This will create a zebra effect as you can see with my cake. Secondly, you can pour the batters one by one alternately, making swirls and thus creating a marble appearance. This will also create some swirls. The third way is to pour in one batter, then add the second one and create swirls by using a knife or an iron stick to swirl the batter around the inside of the tray (don't overdo it though, or you might lose the swirls).
Bake at 180°C for 1 hour. Let it cool down a bit before cutting it.
Use your imagination and tailor the recipe to your taste. Enjoy creativity and Bon Appetit.
A major in culture studies, I decided to choose a different path in life, the one full of challenges where I can live my life fully as a creative person. Ever since high school, I have felt great love for food, and for the past year and a half, I have also been photographing food. I've been following a plant-based diet for two years and I try to live a vegan life. More than a career in cultural studies, I am drawn to nutritionism, Chinese and Ayurveda medicine, and the connection between food and wellbeing. I work as a food blogger, a food photographer, I am creating recipes and content for different food companies.
I swear by living a healthy life in every way - practicing yoga, meditation, reflection, and walks in nature are essential parts of my daily life.
I am interested in personal growth, sustainable and zero-waste life, ''back to nature'' and ''back to yourself'' approach to body, spirit, health, and life. I love to read and I find 'useful' books the best, but I also like to read a good novel. I adore coffee, homemade sweets, and my morning routine.
