I am trying to make marble cake. I guess I used the ingredients in the correct proportion, but when I take cake out, I found the cake hard.
This is the recipe I followed:
2 cups all-purpose flour,2 teaspoons baking powder,1/2 teaspoon salt,1 cup white sugar,1/2 cup butter,2 eggs,1 teaspoon vanilla extract,1 cup milk,2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
- Place flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla, and milk into mixing bowl. Beat slowly to moisten, then beat with an electric mixer at medium speed for about 2 minutes until smooth
- Stir cocoa into the 3/4 cup reserved batter.
- Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. -
Am I missing some ingredient? Is there any issue with oven temperature? How do I fix hard cake?
