Chocolate Marble Cupcakes

Preparation Time: 30 minutes


Cooking Time: 25 minutes


We've made these light and fluffy cupcakes with the help of the Dualit Hand Mixer, making the mixing process faster, easier and more effective. We love this recipe for parties, picnics or as a sweet treat to get us through the day!


  1. Preheat oven to 190º/170º fan.
  2. Add the flour, sugar and baking powder into a large bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, use the Dualit Hand Mixer to mix the eggs and butter together.
  4. Then, pour the wet ingredients into the dry, ensuring to mix continuously to prevent any lumps or clumps of flour forming.
  5. Once the ingredients are well combined, split the cake batter into two bowls.
  6. In one bowl, add the teaspoon of vanilla essence and mix thoroughly.
  7. In the other bowl, use the Hand Mixer to whisk in the cocoa powder.
  8. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases.
  9. Use an ice cream scoop to place one scoop of chocolate cake batter into the bottom of each case.
  10. Then, use a spoon to add a layer of vanilla cake batter to the center of the chocolate batter and lightly swirl the vanilla batter through the chocolate. This will create the marbled effect.
  11. Repeat steps 9 and 10 until all of the batter from both flavours has been used.
  12. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cakes are golden on the top and a skewer comes out clean.
  13. Once the cakes are cooked through, remove from the oven and place onto a wire rack to cool.
  14. Whilst the cupcakes are cooling, mix the icing sugar and water together to form a frosting.
  15. Roughly chop the peanuts into small chunks.
  16. Once the cupcakes are completely cool, spoon the frosting onto the top of each cake and sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
  17. Enjoy!
