Tuesdays With Dorie: Basic Marbled Loaf Cake May 3, 2011

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 🙂

    I love the waterfall look of your swirl. I couldn’t taste the white chocolate at all.

  2. Very interesting marbling pattern, it looks like an impressionist painting. Thanks for baking with me this week. — Carol

    I like the idea of upping the chocolate factor! It worked well for you – the cake looks swirly and delicious.
