Jubilee Marble Cake

6oz Self Raising Flour
6oz Caster Sugar
6oz Butter or margarine
3 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Strawberry Flavouring
Red and Blue Food Colouring

75g Butter
350 Icing Sugar
1tsp Vanilla Extract

Heat the oven to 180oC, then cream the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk. To this add one egg at a time and continue whisking. Sift in the flour and mix until all combined. Separate the mix into three equal measures.

To the first bowl add one teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix thoroughly. To the second bowl add one teaspoon of Vanilla extract and some blue food colouring. To the third bowl add one teaspoon of strawberry and the red food colouring.

Once you have your three mixtures put spoon fulls of the mix dotted about in a loaf tin. Use a fork to blend the gaps but do so gently, you want to see the colours individually not end up with a big purple cake!

Bake for 45-55 minutes depending on your oven then remove from the oven and allow to cool.

When your cake is cool mix the icing sugar and butter together and spread over your cake adding sprinkles to finish. And there you have it, one jubilee cake!
