This is a recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Marble Loaf. It is essentially a pound cake with chocolate swirl and toasted hazelnut on top. It’s a super easy recipe that anyone can do and tastes great! I doubled my recipe when i made it and the quickest way was to combine all the ingredients on it’s own mixer bowl, and just add in the chocolate part in one of them, I also doubled the amount of chocolate measurements for my double loaf. Overall, a great recipe.
- 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp butter, softened
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 3 tbsp milk
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup Nutella
- 1/2 cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
Set the oven to 325F. Prepare loaf pan with parchment paper.
Mix butter, sugar, flour, eggs and milk into a bowl and then beat until the mixture is smooth.
Split half the mixture into another bowl. Beat the cocoa and chocolate spread into one bowl of the plain mixture.
Pour the plain mixture and chocolate mixture into the pan, alternating. Using a skewer or whatever you have handy, swirl around the mixture to create a marble effect.
Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts over the top of the loaf and press them down lightly into the cake mixture.
Bake the cake in the center of the oven for 1-1¼ hours or until the cake feels just firm to the touch and the skewer comes out clean after being inserted into the center of it.
Remove the cake from the oven and leave it to cool in the tin for about 10 mins, then transfer it to a wire rack and leave it to cool completely. Enjoy!
