Two batters in one — chocolate and vanilla — are spiked with strega or sambuca before they're added to a buttered, floured ring pan and sworled for a marble effect. Be sure to melt the chocolate into the milk before combining that half of the batter for the best results. Before serving, consider christening the cake with some powdered sugar. Then, drizzle chocolate sauce on the slices.

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 250 grams flour (sieved)
  • 50 milliliters liqueur (strega, or sambuca)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 150 milliliters vegetable oil
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • 30 grams plain chocolate (chopped fine.)
  • 50 milliliters milk

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the eggs and sugar until light and creamy.
  3. Add, a little at a time, the flour, liqueur, baking powder, oil, a few drops of vanilla, and a pinch of salt..
  4. Grease and flour a ringed 24-centimeter cake pan. Pour in half of the batter.
  5. Add the chocolate and milk to the remaining half and pour over the other cake mixture.
  6. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, stir the mixture to create a marble effect.
  7. Cook on the bottom of the oven for 40 minutes. Test with a wooden skewer.

The base of this cake is a rich vanilla with a touch of sambuca. The recipe does not instruct you to melt the chocolate and milk together, but it would seem to be the best choice for marbling. Be sure to take your time melting the chocolate so it doesn’t become brittle.
