MrsNgSK Butter Cake - modified

Kinda intrigued by Facebook friends, saw the pics of marble cake, makes me wanna make my own. But since I like this latest creation - Mrs NgSK's recipe and the type of texture yield, I decided to modify her recipe. 
Initially wanted a Chocolate & Butter combination, ends up with Chocolate, Strawberry & Butter combination. I like chocolate a lot, not for hubby though and my lovely princess love strawberry, therefore the 3 flavours. Didn't have any strawberries or strawberry milk, so I ended up using essence and a drop of pink. 
Using the same method, it took me extra 20mins to mix the additional flavours and also to mix the cake batter. Wasn't that well mix cos my hand so tired from the creaming of cake batter. Luckily the final product is yummy. Everyone loves it. 
Tri-flavour Marble Cake (modified from MrsNgSK)
230gm butter (salted), softened (cool at 18-20C, not glossy)
200gm eggs, no shell (4 grade B eggs)
50gm + 150gm sugar
200gm self raising flour, sifted.
60ml milk
1 vanilla bean, seeds scraped (or 1 tsp vanilla extract)
1 Tbsp Strawberry Essence
1 drop of pink
1Tbsp Cocoa Powder
1. Preheat oven at 180C (conventional). (I only use 170C). Prepare a 8 inch square pan. Line the base and grease the sides (greasing helps the cake’s sides to rise well)
2. Separate the eggs, and place the whites into a medium sized bowl (6 cup capacity)Beat egg whites until soft peaks, gradually add 50gm sugar and beat until stiff. Set aside.
3. Cream butter and 150gm sugar until pale and fluffy (KA speed 2-4 ). Put in vanilla seeds and and beat for a while. Put in egg yolks one by one and beat well after each addition.
4. Put in half the flour and mix on low speed until incorporated. Put in milk in 2 additions and mix until well incorporated. Mix in balance of flour.
5. Put half the egg whites in and mix on low speed. Pour the balance of egg whites in and FOLD.
6. Pour batter into pan and level.
7. Divide into 3 portion and add 1Tbsp of Cocoa Powder to 1, add 1Tbsp strawberry essence + drop of pink and leave the remaining as it is. Pour batter alternate into pan and level
8. Bake for 150 deg for 45mins
