Vanilla Coconut Rainbow Marble cake

I Have been planning to try out 2 cake recipes from a long time & finally today I tried one of them. Since me & my hubby enjoy coconut flavor, I had decided to use coconut cream in my Vanilla cake recipe. This cake turned out very well. It looks so colourful & at the same time tastes divine. Again a simple recipe with a bit of twist:) I am sure kids will love this & a must try.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Makes one 8-inch cake
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (8 oz / 250 g) granulated sugar ( I have used powdered sugar)
  • 1 can Coconut Cream (I use Kara Brand)
  • 120 gms Salted Butter
  • 1 heaped cup All purpose flour
  • 1.5 Tspn Baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • Pinch of salt
    You’ll also need: mixing bowls, electric mixer or wire whisk, 8 inch round cake pan.we will need small bowls for mixing the batter with different colors.
    1. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Prepare the baking tin.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter & sugar. Add in slightly beaten eggs, coconut milk & mix well. Now add in the flour baking powder, vanilla essence & beat well for another 2 minutes or well combined. .
    3. I divided the mixture into 4 bowls with 5 tablespoons of cake batter in each bowl. I used Yellow, red, blue & green edible Wilton colors. You can use any color you may want. I used 1/4 tspn color to get the desired colors. You really need to add more color coz the color in the cake reduces after baking.
    4. Now is the tricky part. Well there are many ways to get the marble effect in your cake. What I did was... I took one color batter in a spoon & put it in the centre, than I used the 2nd color batter & poured it around the first color. Next 3rd color around the 2nd & 4th around the 3rd. Finally I just used the excess color batter to fill the gaps in the Pan. Tap the pan well on a flat surface & bake it in a preheated oven for about 40 to 50 mins or until tooth pick insert comes out clean.
    • The cake turned out very good. Its super soft, tasty, melt in your mouth & moist.
    • I had made 2 cakes in 1 week of different colors.
    • Since I was in a hurry to taste the cake, I over turned the cake even before it cooled:) So the cake dint come out fully clean. I had some pieces stuck to the bottom of the pan hehehehe:) I am one impatient one:)

    2. Hi there, could you please clarify the amount of coconut milk used? I googled Kara milk and the only packaging available seemed to be 425 ml, but when I used that amount in my recipe the batter was very watery and i tried to save it by adding over 1/2 cup of flour and baking longer, for an hour and a half but it was still damp at the end. Please help.

      1. I am so sorry to hear that. This small can is around 120 ml.
