Marble Bread

Marble Bread Marble Bread
An exciting twist to usual chocolate or sponge cakes! A marble cake is a cake with a streaked or mottled appearance (like marble) achieved by very lightly blending light and dark batter. It can be a mixture of vanilla and chocolate cake, in which case it is mainly vanilla, with streaks of chocolate. Other possibilities are strawberry or other fruit flavors, or (particularly in marbled coffee cakes) cinnamon and/or other spices. I am posting more of desserts esp cakes recipes these days as the celebration season is here. So now no need to buy market made sweets when you can have delicious homemade delicacies with a special ingredient, Love!

Marble BreadPreparation Time 15 mins
Cooking Time 1 hour
115 gms Bittersweet Chocolate Chopped
½ cup milk
1 ½ cup maida/flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ cup cream
½ cup unsalted butter [at room temperature]
1 cup granulated or caster sugar

Marble BreadRecipe

Twin boiler: This means not heating it directly because chocolate burns easily. So boil water in a pan on stove. Keep the bowl with chocolate on top of this pan with water, so that the chocolate melts from the heat from the steam instead of heating directly on stove.
  • Preheat the oven at 160 degrees C.
  • Melt the chopped chocolate in ¼ cup warm milk in a twin bowler.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • In another bowl, mix cream, essence, ¼ cup milk. Keep aside.
  • In a different bowl, beat butter and sugar till fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time.
  • While mixing this, alternately add the flour mixture and cream mixture, in 1/3rd at a time.
  • Now divide this final batter into 2 parts.
  • In one part, fold in the molten chocolate.
  • Grease a large baking tin.
  • Put the chocolate mixture into left half and plain mixture into the right part.
  • Take a knife and run it in between the 2 batters with 3-4 random strokes. DO NOT over combine.
  • Bake for 160 Degrees C for 55-60 mins.
  • Demould and rest for 10 mins before cutting slices and serving with hot tea or coffee.
