 Marbled Ring Cake - Ciambella Marmorizzata

When you're pressed for time & need a go-to dessert - this is it! So simple to make, you can't mess it up!  I love it because it can be eaten all day - breakfast, lunch & dessert! The only problem...never lasts long!

Serves 6-8


6 tablespoons sweet butter, melted (plus extra for greasing)

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour(plus extra for dusting)

2 teaspoons baking powder

scant 1/2 cup superfine sugar

2 eggs

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

confectioner's sugar, for sprinkling

salt


Preheat oven 350 degrees F.

Grease a ring mold with butter and lightly dust with flour.

Sift together the four, baking powder, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl.

Add the eggs, melted butter and milk and mix until smooth and even.

Pour one-third of the mixture into another bowl and stir in the cocoa powder.

Pour the plain mixture into the prepared mold, then pour the cocoa mixture on top.

Bake 35-40 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes, then turn out.

Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and serve.
