    1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 3. Lightly grease a 17x9cm (2 lb) loaf tin and line with baking paper.
    2. In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
    3. In another bowl, beat the softened butter and caster sugar together using an electric beater. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract and add flour mixture in gradually until well combined. Add milk; beat well.
    4. Transfer 1/3 of the cake mixture into another bowl. Mix the cocoa powder and enough warm water (about one or two tablespoons) to create a smooth chocolate sauce; stir into mixture.
    5. Spoon the vanilla cake mixture into the prepared cake tin. Add large spoonfuls of the chocolate mixture on top to create a marble effect, finishing with a layer of vanilla cake mixture.
    6. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Let loaf cake cool in tin for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
