Method Prep:15min › Cook:45min › Ready in:1hr
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4; lightly grease a loaf cake tin.
Beat sugar and softened butter together until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix well. Beat in flour and baking powder; separate the cake mixture into two equal amounts in two different bowls.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave; allow to cool slightly. Fold melted chocolate into one of the cake mixtures. Pour the two mixtures alternately into prepared cake tin to create a marble effect.
Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let cool for 15 minutes and serve warm.
