Prep Time: 1 hour Servings: 8-12
  • 3 eggs

    ¾ cup caster sugar

    1 cup Edmonds standard flour

    1 tsp Edmonds baking powder

    50g butter

    2 Tbsp boiling water

    1 Tbsp cocoa

    2–3 drops red food colouring

    Buttercream Icing

    icing sugar (optional)

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Grease a 20cm round cake tin and line the base with baking paper.

  • 2. Beat the eggs until frothy then gradually beat in the sugar until the mixture is very thick and pale.

  • 3. Sift the flour and baking powder together and fold gently into the egg mixture, followed by the butter melted with the boiling water.

  • 4. Divide the mixture into thirds. Stir the cocoa into one third, and add enough red food colouring to make a pink mixture with another third. Leave the last third plain.

  • 5. Spoon the three mixtures in diagonal stripes into the tin and use a knife to swirl together all the mixtures.

  • 6. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.

  • 7. When cold, ice with Buttercream Icing or dust with icing sugar.
