  1. In a salad bowl, soften the butter using a spatula. Add the flour, sugar, eggs and vanilla-flavoured sugar. Mix until you have obtained a uniform batter (you may add baking powder at this stage for a fluffier cake, but remember to leave extra room for rising when filling the containers).
  2. Grease the inside of the terrines with butter, just like for a cake pan. Fill them to one-third. Keep aside some of the batter for the chocolate part of this easy-to-make cake.
  3. Add the cocoa to the remaining batter, and then pour the mixture into the terrines. Using a fork, make streaks in the batter inside the terrines, making sure not to mix. Make sure the terrines are only half-full, as the cake will rise.
  4. Pre-cook without the lid in the oven at 180°C for 20 minutes. Let cool.
  5. Put on the sealing cap, seal and proceed to the heat treatment of your marble cake for
  6. 45 minutes at 100°C.
  7. Tip: to add flavouring to this easy-to-make cake, you can add a teaspoon of rum to the cocoa before cooking.
