Beat until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla essense. 

In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.

Combine both dry ingredients and egg sugar mixture.

Divide the batter into two equal portions. 

Add cocoa powder to one batter and mix well.

Now we have two portions.Vanila and coco mixture

Pour 1 tblsp of vanila batter in the greased pan. 

Spoon the vanilla and cocoa batter alternatively into the pan.Repeat this until all the batter finishes off.
Finally the batter should be like this.

For Marble Effect:

Using a knife, make a swirl horizontally in the batter .

Then make a swirl vertically to incorporate it in a marble effect. Don't do too much. If you work too much then you will not get the marbling effect.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes  

Remove paper and let it cool completely.

Cut into slices and serve.
