Chocolate Marble Loaf Cake

Every marble cake has a personality of it’s own, I have never seen two of them that has turned out absolutely identical and that’s the part that excites me the most about them.

After it’s baked, it’s always such a delight to slice them up just to admire the beautiful patterns formed by the Vanilla and the Chocolate cake batters and ofcourse, binge on them just after.

This recipe makes one loaf of dense and delicious Marble Cake. I topped mine with a ganache made by melting Lindt Milk Chocolate bars. It’s pretty basic but really gave that Oomph factor to this cake.
I’d definitely recommend your choice of Chocolate ganache to go on this cake, although it’s drool-worthy just as it is, without any topping too.

Great for breakfast, during tea-time or as a dessert, it’s a cake worth trying out!
