Looking for some inspiration your household's next birthday? My children love creating and eating this swirling Rainbow Cake. I guarantee yours will be a work of art, with unique patterns in every slice. It is really fun to make as well.

For this recipe I used 4 colors, but you can use only 2 or even more if you like. I used cocoa for the brown, and a few drops of pink and blue food coloring for the other colors.

Slice of Rainbow Cake


Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Makes: 1 cake

Ingredients
1 cup softened butter
2 cups plain flour
1 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cocoa powder



pink
- Pink mixture


Method
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius . Grease and line a 20 centimeter square or round cake tin.
Cream the butter and caster sugar until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla extract and eggs. Beat until all ingredients are well combined.
Sift in the plain flour and baking powder. Add milk a little at a time.

Chocolate mixture


Divide mixture between three bowls for the coloring process. (The fun part). Leave one bowl plain color, then add cocoa powder to one bowl to make the chocolate brown color. Add a few drops of pink food coloring to the next bowl for the pink color and so on with each bowl. Mix each bowl well.

Dollops of mixture


Dollop the mixture a spoonful at a time, alternating the colors, into the prepared cake tin. Layers of the "rainbow" will begin to form. Once all the mixture has been used - swirl with a skewer gently through the colors.

Bake for 50 minutes or until your (fresh) skewer comes out cleanly.
Allow to cool and serve with whipped cream or your favorite icing. Enjoy.
