Mini marble loaves.
Our version of a marble pound cake is a wonderfully rich and buttery cake that gives you two cakes in one (a chocolate cake and a white cake). The marbling effect is created by placing white and chocolate cake batters, alternately in a loave pan, and then running a knife through the two batters. Marble cakes may look complicated, but they actually start with a basic pound cake batter. Once the batter is made it is divided in half and then melted semisweet chocolate is added to one half. This cake is usually served with just a dusting of powdered sugar, but you can frost it with your favorite frosting or try a white chocolate ganache like we did here.
