TWD::Basic Marbled Loaf Cake
Carol from The Bake More. As I'm just now getting back into the food blogging world, I was excited that this was not only a SUPER easy recipe, but doubly delicious! I really really enjoyed this loaf cake!
I switched things up and instead of using vanilla extract, used Almond (my favorite extract of all time!) and I had forgotten to pick up some bittersweet chocolate last time I was at the grocery store, so opted to use milk chocolate. How did my changes fare? Well, the 1/2 tsp of almond is a very subtle flavor. I would probably double it next time. Also, you would definitely want to use either semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate in this recipe since the milk chocolate did what I feared. It just adds more sweet flavor and gets lost in the shuffle. Oh well. Now you and I both know. Regardless, it still tastes fantastic! Thanks Carol for choosing a winner in my book!
