A good quality marble cake is hard to find. I recently tried Marble Cake by Marmor. What did this marble cake taste like and was it up to par?
Product of Germany
Marble Cake by Marmor is a product of Germany and cost $2.29 for a 400g (14 oz) cake. I bought this cake because I had a feeling it would closely resemble a British marble cake far more than many other varieties I have tried since moving abroad. With that in mind, I decided to buy Marble Cake by Marmor and keep it on hand for afternoon tea or for other occasions if a guest arrived and needed some refreshments.
Each 80g (1/5 of cake) serving size of Marble Cake by Marmor contains 367 calories, 171 of which are from fat, 9g saturated fat, 50mg cholesterol, 150mg sodium, 45g carbohydrate, 1g dietary fibre, 28g sugar, and 4g protein. As soon as I noticed the calorie and fat content of each serving size, my eyes just about popped out of my head. I served a much smaller serving size and would recommend a 30g or 40g serving size, rather than 80g.
I tried just a small piece of cake for my initial taste test. Marble Cake by Marmor is a sponge marble cake covered in a thick layer of chocolate. I was expecting it to taste like my favourite British variety of marble cake, but it did not. Still, I was impressed with the taste of Marble Cake by Marmor and with the addition of the chocolate icing, although it was not as moist as I thought it would be.
Marble Cake by Marmor is a rich cake with a delicious tasting chocolate icing on top. It is a filling cake that can be eaten with a cup of tea or coffee or for dessert after a meal However, I found the serving sizes outrageously large. Rather than serving a large 80g slab of cake, I would recommend a much smaller slice of cake per serving. If you stick with the recommended serving size, you will be consuming a large amount of calories, fat and sugar.
