Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 4. Grease and line a 20cm round cake tin. Combine 100g of the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon of the dry cake mix in a small bowl.

Mix the remaining cake mix, oil, water, and eggs gently together in a medium bowl and whisk (by hand or electric mixer) for 2-3 minutes, until smooth and creamy. Stir in the cake mix dusted chocolate chips.

Place 75g of the remaining chocolate chips into a microwaveable proof bowl and cook for 1 minute on medium, until just melting. Cook for another 1 minute and stir. If not fully melted, continue for another 30 seconds.

Divide the cake mixture between 2 bowls, with 2/3 in one bowl and 1/3 in another. Mix the chocolate into the bowl with 1/3 of the mixture. Dollop alternative spoonfuls of the cake mixtures randomly into the cake tin. Cut through the mixture 4-5 times with a knife in S shaped curves, creating a marbling effect with the two types of cake mixture.

Bake in the oven for 55-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack then remove the cake from the tin cool completely, about 1 hour.

Spread the icing over the top of the cake and decorate with the remaining chocolate chips.

Expert Tips

If you can’t find chocolate chips, you can use chopped dark chocolate instead. Why not use milk and white chocolate chips as well as dark and then you will have a Triple chocolate chip marble cake!

Only cut through the cake mixture 4-5 times to ensure defined marbling of the cake.
