Chocolate Marble Bread Recipe:
A twin flavour sponge cake that’s a perfect tea time companion.
Well lots of decorative cakes are considered to be the work of art because of the way icing or fondant is used on the top. But the most impressive plain, visually appetizing is the marble cake- a wonderful combination of two flavours with beautiful swirls of colours. Try out this spongy delight that goes best with a hot cup of tea or milk.
Ingredients (Serves 5-6):
- All-purpose flour- 1 ½ cups
- Semi bitter Chocolate- 100 gms
- Sugar- 1 cup (I used half sugar and half dry orange drink powder like Tang)
- Salt- ¼ tsp
- Butter- ½ cup
- Eggs- 2
- Baking powder- 2 tsp
- Plain yogurt- 1/4 cup
- Milk- ½ cup
- Preheat the oven on 180 degree centigrade for 10 min.
- Wet Mixture: Whisk together sugar and butter until it is smooth. I used half sugar and half dry orange drink mix (like Tang orange flavour) to give it an orangey twist. You can use plain sugar also. Now add yogurt and mix well again. Now add eggs one by one and incorporate them well.
- Dry Mixture: Take flour, baking soda, salt and whisk it to remove any lumps.
- Break chocolate into small pieces. Add milk to it and microwave or put it up on double boiler till it melts.
- Now mix dry mixture with the wet mixture in batches and adding only 2 tsp in each batch.
- After the whole mixture is ready. Divide the mixture and add ¼ of the mixture in the molten chocolate and mix well. Keep the other ¾ of the mixture as it is.
- Now grease bread tin. Add a layer of white mixture first level it now add the chocolate mixture on top in a layer and again tap the mould to level it. Again add the white mixture, then chocolate and top it with white mixture. Do not stir else you will lose the marble effect.
- Now put the tin in oven for around 40 minutes.
- Check it with a skewer after 40 minutes, if the skewer comes out clean the bread is done; else keep it again for 10 minutes. After its done keep it on wired rack to cool down.
- Cut the pieces and serve it with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
