Chocolate marble cake

Marble cakes are one of my favourite cakes growing up. As a kid, I was always amazed by the waved like patterns in the cake. Turns out it is really easy to make it – all you need is a spoon to swirl the mixture around and the best part is that now I get to decide the types of swirls I want in my cake!
