Marble cake is the perfect recipe to prepare with your kids so you have the perfect excuse to indulge! I love baking with kids (even I’m guilty of not doing it too often…). Another great one to make with them is the Chocolate-Zucchini cake!

Breakfast, snack, dessert, you pick.  Even the day of the week, Monday is a suggestion to get the week rolling.  I do need some incentive to get through the week sometimes.

Marble Cake Is For Kids & Grown-ups!

This cake actually brings me some sort of nostalgia. It really reminds me of my childhood back in France. Now, there were a great one you could by in the supermarket.

I have talked a lot before here and here about travelling through my senses. A smell, a taste and I’m time-travelling or wandering in some streets in France.

Baking this marble cake, not only makes me travel, it is a comfort food. And guess what? Looks like I passed that one on to my kids… My little man speaks fondly about the last time we baked one and how we should repeat.

A kitchen is really the heart of a home and where our hearts beat together.

Go bake a piece of comfort, smile and be happy!  Share it with someone special!

I highly recommend making my recipes using a scale but for your convenience I have also converted the recipe using this website.
