Marble cake is a cake with a streaked appearance (like marble) achieved by very lightly blending light and dark batter. Usually blending vanilla and chocolate batter. One of the first print references to marble cake appears in Malinda Russell’s, “Domestic Cook Book” from 1866. One popular variation of this recipe during Victorian times was “Harlequin cake,” which was baked with checkerboard patterns. Early recipes used molasses and spices to achieve the dark colored batter.
I like to take advantage of winter citrus. We’ve been buried in non-stop snow here on the east coast and making things with citrus has become something of an obsession these days. If you don’t have access to pomelo then use grapefruit.

I love the warm, spicy flavor of gingerbread. This recipe is intensified by using two forms of ginger – ground and crystallized. This is a nice dessert or great for holiday mornings with a cup of strong coffee.
I love these sweet and delicious scones. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or an anytime snack.
I love this time of the year when fruit is fresh and abundant. Plums are in season from May to October, so you may want to plan a trip to the farmers’ market and stock up. Make the most of the season’s bounty by making Plum Muffins to brighten up your mornings.
