Rose – Vanilla Marble Cake.

Wednesday was the surprise baby shower of one of my close friend, so I had voted on  making an eggless cake. There was this bottle of Organic Gulkhand that I had bought at the Global Foods store that was beckoning to me for a long long time.  I had wanted to make a Falooda, but some how the timing was not exactly working out too well!!!  I experimented with this Rose-Vanilla cake with no icing, as I some times feel that the taste of the icing, overpowers the aroma and taste of a cake. This cake was extremely moist and spongy and very tasty in its own right.


2 cups of All Purpose Flour.

1 3/4 cup Whole Milk .

1/2 cup Oil.

1 1/4 cup Sugar.

1 tsp  vanilla essence.

4 spoons of Organic Ghuklhand or Rose Essence.

1 Tsp Bakng Soda.

1 Tsp Baking Powder.


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and line your cake pan with butter spray, butter, oil  or flour.
  • In a bowl, measure out the dry ingredients – Flour, Baking Soda, baking powder. Mix and keep ready.
  • In another mixing bowl, start with the millk and add oil, sugar, and pure vanilla extract and whisk well to dissolve any lumps. Take caution NOT to over mix as this may rob the cake of sponginess.
  • Remove a small portion of the readied vanilla batter to add the rose essence.
  • To this portionm  briskly mix in the ghulkhand or rose essence. If you find the ghuklhand a little thick, pop it in the microwave oven for a few minutes till it becomes a thick syrup!
  • Pour the plain vanilla batter on to the greased cake pan and now randomly pour the rose mixture on to this vanilla batter.
  • Use a toothpick and make little patterns on the cake batter to create a marble effect.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick thats inserted comes out clean.
  • Enjoy delicious Rose-Vanilla Marble Cake warm with ice cream!!!

  1. I love the flavor and aroma of gulkand when i make sherbet with rose flower petals.But never knew that gulkand which we just lick like that or at the most have it in PAAN(betelnut wrap) could be eaten in this avatar too.The cake sounds and look delicious and i too just cant have any cake with icing,coz i find icing too sweet and buttery
    Warm wishes to your friend too 🙂

  2. Shoba, i tried your recipe with two flavors – vanilla and chocolate. Cake came out perfect. Your recipe rocks…Thank for the keeper recipe.

  3. Thanks for your lovely work. I love your blog. I would just like to clarify :

    I tried out the cake with rose essence (not gulkand) on a large pan (11*3) so the cake came out thin. It was soft and tasty but not very sweet (maybe it needed more sugar?). Anyway, it was well received and something different from the usual chocolate cakes I make all the time. I didn’t the get the glossy top surface like you did though. Did you add some syrup?

  4. Hi,
    I made this cake last week .I didn’t make it as a marble cake though.Mixed the gulkhand to the entire batter.The taste was awesome and the texture was really good.Thanks for sharing this nice recipe.Good luck……..
