Marble cake à la Noma

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease the cake tin with a little oil.

Mix the sugar with the eggs until you have a light yellow, creamy mixture. Stir in the milk, then the oil.

Using a spatula, mix the flour and baking powder into the batter. Do not stir too violently, fold the flour in it, as it were.

Divide the batter between two cups and add the cocoa powder to one cup. Fold it into the batter.

Time to pour the two colors of batter into the baking tin! Talk to your inner Jackson Pollock or pour the batter alternately in the baking tin and then pull a skewer or knife through it to make a nice marbled pattern.

Bake the marble cake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. If a knife comes out of the cake clean, it is good. Allow to cool, remove from the mold and cut into slices.
