For the Love of Loaves!

marbledloaf

Of all desserts, loaves are probably the most versatile! You can have them with a latte in the A.M. or enjoy a slice (or two, no judging) on its own. Not to mention, there are so many combinations you can make. My favourite? A marbled mix with chocolate and vanilla –that way, you get the best of both worlds.

Sometimes when I make them from scratch however, the cake turns out a little too dry, or doesn’t rise as it should. So I came up with a quick and simple solution: start with a box of pre-packaged cake mix, and turn it into your own creation! To make this marbled loaf, here’s what you’ll need.

Ingredients:

1 box vanilla cake mix
3 eggs
1 1/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of oil
1 tbsp coca powder
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the sifted cake mix along with the eggs, water, and oil (as in quantities above or according to package instructions)
  3. Mix well eliminating any lumps.
  4. In a greased loaf pan, pour 2/3 of the cake mix.
  5. Add 3 tbsp of cocoa powder to the remaining mix, and pour over existing one in the pan in a straight line down the middle.
  6. Using a skewer or knife, swirl the mix around to create a marbled effect.
  7. Bake for about 25 minutes, then quickly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean!

Style is served!
