Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Cake

I just love this simple, old-fashioned cake as it always reminds me of when I was little. Made using a basic Madeira cake recipe, the mixture is separated into two bowls, cocoa powder is folded into one and then the two mixtures are swirled gently together. This cake will keep for a couple of days in an airtight box, or it can be frozen. Serve it plain or dusted with icing sugar, or drizzle some hot chocolate sauce over the top.
