Tropical aroma cake

Here is the recipe for a 'vintage' Norwegian favourite, I call it vintage as it seems to have been very popular in the 60's. 
As I always do, I reduced the recommended sugar amount and would  recommend using a level, or small  teaspoon of the nutmeg and cinnamon if you do not want a heavily spiced cake.

-           125 g butter (room temperature)

-           250 g sugar

-           2 eggs

-           250 g flour

-           1 teaspoon cinnamon

-           2 ½ dl milk

-           3 tablespoons cacao powder

- Cream butter and sugar, then add eggs one at a time.
- Sift in dry ingredients, except cocoa powder
- Separate the batter in two separate bowls, then add the cocoa powder to one of them.
- Butter and flour (or line with baking paper) a 24 cm diameter cake pan. To make the marbled affect, pour half of the clear batter first, then drop with a spoon half of the chocolate batter. Repeat.
-  Bake in an 180 degrees oven for 35-40 mns.
