This was a little bit of an invention test, something that circled my mind for a while - I made this for my best friend's Hen's night..
1 cup of buttermilk
2 cups of sugar
Half a cup of vegetable oil
2 whole eggs
2 cups of flour
1 sachet of baking powder
40g blended almonds or raisins or both
1 teaspoon of Cocoa
Mix all ingredients except for cocoa together. Eggs should be lightly beaten before added to the mixture.
Separate 1/4 of the mixture into another bowl and add cocoa so that it goes brown.
Place white mixture in a tray (I used a round muffin tin tray) then add the brown mixture in whatever pattern you like, swirl it around with a fork.
Bake on 180C for about 30 minutes or until fully set and golden.
In every half round, scoop out the middle with a mini ice cream scoop and fill with cherry compote. top with the other half and sprinkle with icing sugar until completely white.
Happy Baking :)
