This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Carol from The Bake More. She picked Dorie’s Basic Marbled Loaf Cake, which is located on pages 230-231 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. For this recipe Dorie gives a few different flavor combinations to try. I decided to go with Chocolate and While Chocolate as my two flavors since I had a bag of white chocolate on hand and 6 oz of bittersweet chocolate that needed to be used.
Dorie’s recipe calls for using 4 oz white chocolate and 4 oz bittersweet chocolate, but since I already had 6 oz of bittersweet chocolate melted I just decided to up the chocolate factor. The batter for the loaf cake was very easy to put together, and it actually baked up in the allotted 1 hr 30 minute time frame. Which usually doesn’t happen for me, so I was pleasantly surprised. It baked up perfectly, and sliced up very nicely. I decided to reserve the two end pieces for myself and Mike took the rest to work. The verdict, well the plate was clean so I figured it went over well. Mike’s comment was that the cake was very moist, which I second. The flavor combination of the two was nice together, but I preferred the chocolate sections :)
