Fast, simple, moist and incredibly tasty! Ideal when you need to throw together something fast, but still want to impress. I love the sweet, milky, taste of the filling.
- 250 g all-purpose flour (2 cups)
- 1/3 cup of Dutch process cocoa
- 1 pack baking powder (corresponds to 12 g)
- 120 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 180 ml of oil suitable for baking (e.g. sunflower oil) (3/4 cup)
- 2 packs of quark (2×250 g)
- 1 vanilla pudding powder
- 100 g caster sugar
- 2 eggs
- 240 ml milk (1 cup)
Make the dough
Preheat oven to 180ºC (356ºF). Grease and flour a baking tray.
In a big bowl mix eggs and sugar until creamy (using hand mixer).
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients into the big bowl, add also the oil and mix again until well combined.
Make the filling
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the filling until well combined.
Pour a bit more than 1/2 of the dough in the baking tray. Pour the filling over the layer of the dough. Finish with last layer of the dough. It will probably not cover the whole tray so there will already be places where the filling is still visible. Use a spoonor knife to mix the dough and filling to create that marble pattern.
Bake the cake
Bake for about 30 mins. Use a skewer to test if the cake is done. If you insert it in the centre of the cake, it should come out clean. If not, leave the tray in the oven for a few more minutes.
Store in a closed plastic box in the fridge.
