Healthier Marble Cake
Marble cake has a special place in my heart.
As an Asian, I didn't grow up having such a huge varieties of desserts and sweet treats. I think it's an Asian thing. Personally I'm more of a savoury person than a sweet one.
But I do remember marble cake was one of the first cakes that I tried when I was growing up. My mother didn't bake a lot but I remember her making marble cake and ohhh it was so delicious!
Hey, are you interested in the classic marble cake recipe?
The recipe that I'm sharing with you today is based on that recipe but for this one I'm using some healthier ingredients instead of the conventional ones.
For starter, I'm not using white flour at all in this recipe. And nope, no white sugar or any refined sugar also.
You can see this marble cake is just as beautiful and yes, it's super delicious!
