Speedy Marble Pound Cake

Less butter, less sugar recipe.

Recipe By: Deepseafish (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/269)
Serves 6-8 Prep: 15 min Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Eggs (medium) 3
Butter(salted) 80g
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Self raising flour 150g
Granulated sugar 130g
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Honey 1 tbsp
Water or milk 1 tsp
Cocoa powder 2 tbsp

Method

1
Melt the butter in a bowl with vegetable oil and sugar and stir. I used a microwave for 30 seconds.
2
Separate the eggs and put the yolk into the bowl. Whisk the whites to make a soft peak meringue, then add to the other bowl. Mix gently.
3
Sift the flour into the bowl. Fold it in gently but fast to avoid gluten forming.
4
Split the mix into two. Add the cocoa powder to one half and mix gently.
5
Put a baking sheet into a tin and pour each mix into it a bit at a time to create a mix of white and brown.
6
With a tablespoon, stir the mix slowly in a spiral 1.5 turns.
7
Put into a preheated 180C oven and bake for 30 minutes.
8
Test with a cocktail stick to make sure the middle is cooked before removing from the oven and allowing to cool. Enjoy your own marble pattern!

Tips & Note

A pound cake is traditionally the same amount of flour, butter, sugar and eggs (for example one pound of each), but the butter and sugar would be far too much nowadays, so I reduced these two ingredients. If you think your guests would love a sweet pound cake, you can increase the sugar up to 150g. Your marble pattern will depend on what instrument you use to make the swirl.

It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.
