Ingredients (for 8 people)

  • 25 grams of FOODIES-PLANET® rice milk chocolate
  • 25 grams of FOODIES-PLANET® dark chocolate
  • 170 grams of vegan butter (melted)
  • 40 grams of vegan cacao powder
  • 4 tbsp boiling water
  • 250 grams of organic all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp of organic buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 180 grams caster sugar
  • 150 grams vegan yoghurt
  • 180 ml soy milk or almond milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • Optional: a few leaves of mint

Let’s get started!

  • Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and cover a baking sheet measuring 30 x 11 cm with baking paper. 
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and boiling water. Set aside to cool fully. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the plain white flour, cornstarch, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and fine sea salt. Set aside.
  • In the cup of a high-speed blender, blend together the caster sugar, vegan yoghurt, soy milk, vanilla extract, white vinegar and melted vegan butter. Once smooth, gradually add the blended mixture to the dry ingredients in increments, whisking together between additions until the mixture is fully combined and smooth, but not overmixed. 
  • Place just under half of the batter in a separate medium bowl, add the cocoa mixture and whisk until combined. 
  • Starting with the vanilla batter, spoon just enough into the prepared loaf tin to cover the bottom in a thick layer. add small cubes of the rice milk and dark chocolate per layer as well. Repeat with the chocolate layer on top then continue to alternate between batters until the loaf tin is filled and the batters and chocolate pieces have all been used. 
  • Use a bamboo skewer to create a few swirls in the batters but don’t overmix.  
  • Place the loaf tin in the oven on the pre-heated baking sheet to bake for 60 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven once baked and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing the cake from the tin and leaving to cool fully on a wire cooling rack. Once cooled to room temperature the cake is ready to slice and serve.
  • You can also decorate the marble cake with a few leaves of mint to create a fresh taste.
