Italian marble cake


A delicious veined zebra chocolate.

I discovered this recipe on the "Papilles et Pupilles" blog and the photos were so beautiful that I couldn't resist!

I followed the recipe to the letter, I just added a grated tonka bean in the vanilla paste. The result is a beautiful, soft cake with a delicious flavor!

For next time, I think I'll double the amounts to have a higher cake 😉
