Turkish coffee marble cake
I love our aromatic Turkish coffee, Turk kahvesi; it is more than a drink for us with its rituals. This is a deliciously fragrant but not overpowering Turkish coffee marble cake, ideal for coffee lovers and anyone who would enjoy a delicious slice of cake aside their favourite drink; it is especially wonderful with tea or coffee aside.
I used Ozerlat UK’s fragrant heritage blend Turkish coffee in this cake, it worked beautifully. If you like to order Turkish coffee or other goods from Ozerlat UK, you can use code OZLEM10 at their check out here to get 10 % discount.
I hope you enjoy this fragrant cake as much as we did, Afiyet Olsun,

- Divide the cake batter into two equal portions. Add the 2tbsp whole milk to one portion of the cake batter, stir gently and combine well.
- Stir in the combined Turkish coffee, cocoa powder and milk mixture into the other portion of the cake batter. Stir gently and combine well.
- Spoon tablespoonfuls of large blobs of the each cake batter into the greased tin, alternating the flavours. Position each spoonful on top of each other to give a rippled effect. Swirl the mixture gently with a skewer or chop stick to give a marble effect.
- Bake for 40 – 45 minutes until the cake is springy and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
- Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes. Then turn into a serving plate to cool completely before slicing. This cake will keep well for up to 3 days in a cake tin.
