I find that when replacing the margarine in cookie and cake recipes, substituting 2/3 to ¾ the specified amount in oil usually works.
Cinnamon Marble Cake
Adapted from Shiputzim family friend Z.’s recipe
- ¾ cup oil (I use canola)
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- ¼ cup water
- 3 cups flour
- 3 tsp baking powder (i.e. one envelope for my Israeli readers)
- 1 container of Rich’s whip (Yes, I DO realize that there are those who’d say that this is just as bad as margarine… ;-))
- 1 TBSP cinnamon
- 3 TBSP sugar
Beat oil and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and water. Mix in flour and baking powder. Add whip.
Place half the batter in a greased or baking-paper-lined 9x13 pan.
Combine topping ingredients, and sprinkle half the topping over the batter in the pan. Use a knife to fold the topping into the batter.
Pour the remaining batter into the pan, and then cover with remaining topping. Use a knife to make a marble pattern on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until done.
