Marbled cake without butter


Hello my foodies

I'm so proud of my marble cake, yes lol again, if I'm not for me who will be for me, it starts with yourself.

This cake looks so beautiful and is also extremely delicious. The cutting, I felt such a sense of pride because I think I've levelled up and I love it. It's thanks to this new desire to share a little more of myself in an Instagram story with you.

As always it's a simple, quick recipe with very little egg and sugar, the initial recipe has double the egg and sugar.

The motto was respected, a simple, quick and delicious recipe. À You be the judge, I'm confident.

This time for my latest recipes, I use a Greek yoghurt cake base, which compensates for the egg reduction and brings even more softness and lightness to the cake. But you can still make this recipe with a 125 gr plain yoghurt which has exactly the same role. 


  • Simple made with very few ingredients,
  • Fast, can be done in less than an hour (preparation and cooking).
  • Perfect for children
  • Can be made in a bakery workshop with the children.
  • Cheap to make.
  • Delicious, sweet just right. 




  • To have a well rounded cake with a nice bump thanks to a crack obtained with a thermal shock and a technique that consists in putting a horizontal line of butter ointment (I use oil that works as well) in the middle of the dough in the mould over the whole length of the dough.
  • Put your cake in the oven horizontally for a nice bump.
  • This recipe can be made without egg.
  • Leave it to cool for 5 min, then remove it from its mould and wrap it in cling film to keep it soft.

Utensils required :




    Measure if you want to make this recipe a plain yogurt.

    I use my 125gr yoghurt pot as a unit of measure. 

    I use a 20 cm mould

    For moulds from 20 to 25 cm

    • 1 Greek yogurt 150 gr
    • 2 medium eggs
    • 3 Flour jars 3x100 gr
    • 1 Sugar jar 150 gr (if you like sugar add 50 gr)
    • 1/2 Sunflower oil jar 75 gr
    • Cocoa powder without sugar 15 gr
    • 1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
    • Baking powder 11 gr

    If you do it with a 125g yoghurt pot...

    The measures are:

    • yoghurt 125 gr
    • 3 jars of flour or 255 gr
    • 1 jar of sugar or 125 gr if you like sugar increase the amount of sugar a little bit
    • 1/2 jar of sunflower oil or 65 gr.

    For the other ingredients, the quantities are the same.


    1. Pour the yoghurt into a bowl and keep the jar for measuring the other ingredients.
    2. Add the oil, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder and mix with a spatula (a plastic spatula with a flat end).
    3. Mix with the maryse until a homogeneous paste is obtained.
    4. Separate the dough into two different bowls in equal parts.
    5. In one add the cocoa powder and in the other, a teaspoon of natural vanilla extract.
    6. If the chocolate paste becomes compact after adding the chocolate, add 2-3 tablespoons of water to make a slightly more liquid paste.
    7. Place the two pasta pieces in a pastry bag.
    8. Line the mould with baking paper and pour the chocolate paste into it, then poach the paste, alternating layers of vanilla and cocoa.
    9. Using a knife driven to the bottom of the mould, make vertical waves along the entire length to draw the marbling.
    10. Make a thin horizontal line of ointment butter or oil (I use oil that works just as well) in the middle of the dough along the entire length of the dough.
    11. Bake at 200 °C for 15 min and then at 160 °C for about 45 min to create this famous thermal shock. Watch the baking by pushing the tip of a knife into the middle of the cake: if it comes out clean, it's cooked!
    12. Leave it to cool for 5 min, then remove it from its mould and wrap it in cling film to keep it soft.
    13. Let it cool for at least an hour.

    I hope you like it. Now it's up to you.
