Marble Pound Cake

If you are looking for a moist, soft and chocolaty marble cake, look no further. This is THE one! Thanks to Anna Olson, I have found the perfect marble cake.

This cake is not too big or too rich. It is certainly moist and soft and the size is just right.

3/4 cup (185 ml) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup (160 ml) sour cream
4 oz (120g) bittersweet choc, chopped and melted

1. Pre heat oven to 160 degree celsius. Grease 9 x 5 inch loaf pan and dust with flour, tapping out any excess.
2. Using electric mixer beat butter and sugar untill light and fluffy about 2 mins. Add eggs one at a time, beating wella after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
3. In separate bowl, sift and whisk flour, baking powder and salt. Add this to the butter mixture, alternating with sour cream and blending well after each addition, starting and finishing with flour. Scrape half if this mixture into another bowl.
4. Melt the chocolate and add warm chocolate to one bowl of the batter and stir until blended. Dollop vanilla batter and chocolate batter in alternate spoonfuls into pan.  Use a paring knife to swirl the batter.
5. Bake the cake for 60 to 70 mins until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool cake for 30 mins in the pan, then turn cake out to cool completely.
