Marble Loaf Cake

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there! You must have all the activities planned for the Father's day weekend to enjoy with your Kids. At my home, my kids and VJ are the one who has sweet tooth. . And one thing they love in common is Pound Cake. So today I picked the activity to make a pound cake from scratch with the twist of marble effects. I involved the kids in baking this beauty to present it to their Dad and all of them enjoyed this activity of baking and indulging with this wonderful treat for the Father's Day!! Got more ideas for Father's day or share how you planned and celebrated the Father's Day! Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Marble Loaf Cake
Addpated from: Martha Stewart

Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup (1 stick)
All Purpose Flour - 1 3/4 cup
Baking Powder - 2 tsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1 Cup
Eggs - 3
Buttermilk - 2/3 cup
Cocoa Powder - 1/4 cup (Unsweetened)
Vanilla Extract- 1 tsp

Right from the Oven...
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 C. Apply the butter a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan; set aside. 
  2. Whisk together the cake flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add butter and sugar in a medium bowl, beat with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beat after each addition until it become smooth. Add Vanilla Extract and mix well. 
  4. Add flour mixture in 2 batches, alternating with the buttermilk and beginning and ending with the flour. Set aside 1/3 of the batter.
  5. In a bowl, mix cocoa and 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons boiling water until smooth. Add the cocoa mixture to the reserved cake batter; stir until well combined.
  6. Spoon batters into the prepared pan in 2 layers, alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and chocolate to simulate a checkerboard. To create marbling, run a table knife (or Fork) through the batters in a swirling motion.
  7. Bake, rotating the pan halfway through, approximately for 40 to 50 minutes. Transfer pan to a rack to cool 10 minutes. Turn out cake from pan and cool completely on the rack.  

Cut into wedges and let the Kids Serve to their Dad. They finished the whole cake in a day. ;-)

Cake can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
