A marble cake is a butter cake which has been divided into three - just flavour one portion with chocolate ( use either cocoa, or if you really want good flavour, use melted chocolate), colour a second portion with red (cochineal), and the third part is flavoured vanilla. When putting it in the pan, just dollop it in then give it a swirl, and lo and behold, "marble".

Cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs one at a time. Sift four, cream of tartar and bicarb soda together, then stir into creamed mixture alternately with milk to make a 'dropping' consistency. Divide mixture into three parts, colouring them with cocoa (or melted chocolate), cochineal, and vanilla respectively. Use about a 9" cake pan, that is greased and has paper lining the base. Bake in a moderate oven (350F) app, 1 hour.
