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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

Step 1

Set the oven to 325F. Prepare loaf pan with parchment paper.

Step 2

Mix butter, sugar, flour, eggs and milk into a bowl and then beat until the mixture is smooth.

Step 3

Split half the mixture into another bowl. Beat the cocoa and chocolate spread into one bowl of the plain mixture.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Sprinkle the chopped hazelnuts over the top of the loaf and press them down lightly into the cake mixture.

Step 6

Bake the cake in the center of the oven for 1-1ΒΌ 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.

Step 7

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!
