Romanian marble cake

Romanian marble cake

This recipe makes 2 loaves.
It is a very quick poundcake that is easy to throw together. It tastes too good and it's so easy to make!

*Make sure not to stir too much, as stirring will develop the gluten and make for a cake that is less fluffy.

- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1cup milk
- 1 cup vegetable oil (not olive)
- 2cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder + 1 pinch salt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- peel from 2 lemons
- cocoa, about 3 Tablespoons (or more if you like it darker) for marbling

Grease 2 loaf pans, and line with baking paper. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350.

Put eggs in a bowl
add sugar, lemon peel, and vanilla

mix until smooth

add milk and oil

add flour, baking powder, salt (which have been mixed together in a bowl)

pour into molds, leaving a bit of batter for mixing with cocoa

mix the remaining batter with cocoa and pour over the rest

add nuts, if desired

Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes (toothpick should come out clean, if not, then leave a few more minutes)
