For the Cocoa Paste:

  • 25g Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 5g Instant Coffee

Method for Cake:

  1. Combine the milk with lemon juice or vinegar and set aside for 15 minutes to curdle. Stir in both sugars until dissolved, then add oil and vanilla, mixing well.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, setting aside the cocoa paste ingredients.
  3. Fold the dry ingredients into the liquid mixture to create a smooth batter.
  4. Prepare the cocoa paste by blending the cocoa powder, instant coffee, and hot water until smooth.
  5. Incorporate the cocoa paste into one-third of the vanilla batter until evenly mixed.
  6. Spray an 8-inch loaf pan with non-stick coating. Alternate spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate batter into the pan, layering until it’s 3/4 full.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 330°F (165°C) for about 25-30 minutes. Once baked, cool the cake on a wire rack before glazing.

For the Chocolate Glaze:

  • 200g Dark Chocolate (55% or semi-sweet)
  • 35g Neutral Oil

Glaze Method:

  1. Melt the chocolate and oil together in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring until completely smooth.
  2. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Once the cake has cooled, pour the glaze over the loaf.
  3. Let the glaze set for about 1 hour at room temperature or chill in the fridge, then slice and serve.

This Marble Loaf Cake is a visual treat with its swirls of contrasting colors and a feast for the palate with its rich flavors. It’s a piece of art on a plate that will delight both chocolate and vanilla lovers alike.
