Marble cake

Inspired by a recipe found on the Instagram profile Barbarasjourney, I decided to reproduce my own version of this marble cake changing a bit the ingredients, therefore the quantities. I am very glad I found this recipe, it has been loved so much at home 🙂


  • 60 gr white flour 
  • 50 gr coconut flour 
  • 50 gr grounded almonds
  • 80 gr moscovado sugar or coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking powder 
  • 40 ml coconut oil, melted 
  • 120ml oat milk 
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 


  1. Preheat the oven at 190° fan
  2. Roast the almonds, then in the mixer break them (I use pulsed option)
  3. In the mixer combine almonds, flours, baking powder, sugar, coconut oil, vanilla. Mix. Add the oat milk bit by bit, until the mixture is soft, creamy and wet.
  4. Divide the dough in 2/3 and 1/3
  5. Place 2/3 of it in a cake tin (I used the typical plumcake tin) with some baking paper. 
  6. In the other 1/3 of the dough add one big tablespoon of cacao. Add some oat milk if needed. Combine well
  7. Create a second layer on top of the first one. Remember, you do not want the two parts completely mixed because you want to keep the marble effect. To obtain this I suggest to use a fork and dig into the two layers two or three times, creating some gentle waves. 
  8. Bake for 1h at 190° fan. Let it cool down before serving

Why we love it:

  • It is very well appreciated  by everyone, vegan and non vegan people
  • The consistency is firm and humid, perfectly spongy 
  • It’s a cake but it’s guilt free! Can you ask for more?!
