Chocolate Marble Chiffon Cake is a combination of vanilla and chocolate baked together. This marble chiffon cake is moist and delicious. It’s easy to make and a perfect chai time edition. Try this one, its one of those recipes you would want to note down for life


  • 7 egg yolks
  • 5 tablespoon Oil unflavored
  • 60 grams castor sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 120 grams Self-raising flour
  • 7 egg whites
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 140 grams castor sugar
  • 3 ½ tablespoons Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder



  • In a bowl, mix the egg yolks and 6o grams castor sugar together
  • Once mixed, add the vanilla essence and oil. Mix well until all the sugar has dissolved and the mixture seems creamy
  • Mix well and fold in the self-raising flour. Once done, set this mixture aside.


  • In another bowl roughly beat the egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat until soft peaks are formed. At this point keep adding 140 grams of sugar a little at a time and beat well until all the sugar is well dissolved and forms really stiff peaks.


  • Now, using a spatula combine the stiff egg whites with the egg yolk & flour mixture. Fold in the egg whites using a spatula carefully. Do not over mix this mixture. Once well-combined. Divide the batter into 2 parts. Add the cocoa powder in one part of the batter and fold lightly. Do not overmix at this point as the batter may turn runny


  • In a 9-inch baking dish lined with parchment paper at the base making sure it is not greased with butter or oil, pour 2 heaped spoons of the white batter (batter without cocoa powder) and 2 of the brown batter (batter with cocoa powder). Keep pouring spoons of the batter randomly all over the baking dish. Do not overfill the baking dish with the batter as this cake rises quite high.
  • Tap the baking dish before baking to remove excess air bubbles from this mixture


  • Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 50-60 mins. The cake should spring back when pressed in the center. That’s when you know it is well baked.
  • After baking, let the cake cool upside down on a wire rack until it comes to room temperature. Pass a knife through the sides of the baking dish and unmold the cake.

Recipe Notes

Do not put baking paper on the sides of the baking dish
If you want some swirls in your marble cake lightly move a toothpick in the cake batter once poured into the baking dish just before baking.
