Marble Poundcake


You all know poundcakes are my favourite, so I don’t think this cake needs any kind of introduction. Chocolate ü Vanilla ü Moist ü I have found the perfect accompaniment to coffee.

Marble Poundcake

Recipe by kitchenhealssoul

260g (2 cups) Flour
1 ¼ tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Salt
173 (3/4 cup) Unsalted Butter, room temp
200g (1 cup) Sugar
4 Large Eggs, room temp
2 tsp Vanilla
160ml (2/3 cup) Greek Yogurt, or Sour Cream
113g (4oz) Plain Cooking Chocolate, or Dark Chocolate

1. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F and line your loaf pan with parchment/wax paper.
2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together into a bowl.
3. In another bowl, cream the butter and the sugar until it is fluffy. Then add the eggs, one at a time, making sure to whisk well in between. Add the vanilla and mix again.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the batter, alternating with the yogurt. Use a spatula or a spoon so as not to overmix. [this will be your Vanilla Batter]
5. Scoop out half of the Vanilla batter into another bowl. [this will become your Chocolate Batter]
6. Break the chocolate into small pieces. Using a bain-marie, slowly melt the chocolate. You can also use a microwave, but as always, it can be unpredictable. Once the chocolate has melted, add it into the batter from the previous step. Mix until the chocolate is fully incorporated.
7. I poured my vanilla batter in first, and then added the chocolate batter on top of that. I then used a knife to swirl the batters together to create the marbling effect.

8. Bake the loaf for about 70 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the loaf cool for about 10-15 minutes in the pan; using the ends of the wax paper, remove the loaf, peel off the wax paper, and the leave it to cool completely on a wire rack before slicing it. Enjoy!
