How to Prepare the Chocolate Marbled Ring Cake

Sift the flour and the baking powder in a large bowl (1). Add the sugar and amalgamate well the ingredients, blending with a tablespoon (2). In a second bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk until they become frothy (3).

Liquefy the butter and let it return to room temperature (4). Add it to the beaten eggs and add also the milk, always at room temperature. Add the obtained liquid mixture to the flour, little by little, and blend well with the whisk, so to prevent the formation of lumps (5). Divide the dough in half, and place the two half in two different bowls. In the first bowl add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. and in the second bowl add the bitter cocoa (6). Blend both doughs, until they are smooth and homogeneous.

In a previously floured and buttered baking tray, create a first layer with half of the vanilla mixture (7). Immediately afterwards, pour the cocoa dough (8) in an irregular way. Finish with the remaining vanilla dough (9). To emphasize the effect of "marbled ring cake", create some circles with a knife in the mixture, but be careful not to overdo it otherwise the two doughs will mix too much and you will lose the marbled effect. Cook at 170° C in a convection oven for 55 minutes, so that the heat spreads uniformly. Let the chocolate marbled ring cake cool down, turn it upside down on a plate and serve it sliced with a sprinkling of confectioner’s sugar.
