Eggless Marble Cake

For the third day of  the final week of Blogging Marathon#20 I decided to make use of the fluted tube pan I bought from Chennai. Though I have posted many cake recipes, I haven't yet posted the marble cake. So I tried it out today. The cake was not so pretty. I should have used a knife to make the marbling pattern instead of tooth pick. But the taste was absolutely delicious. The cake is slightly sweet and the icing balances the sweetness needed. I used cocoa powder icing but if you want a chocolaty version you can go for melted chocolate. My daughter had a small piece and she enjoyed it a lot. I also enjoyed baking in my new pan. I am linking this to Srivalli's Kid's Delight- Party Specials.
