Marble Pound Cake

Tube Pan

I made a Marble Pound Cake today using a 10-inch tube pan instead of a loaf pan and it turned out well.
Here's the recipe

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 ounces chocolate bittersweet, melted & cooled
Preheat oven to 325 deg. Butter a 9 x 5 loaf pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Mix and beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, add vanilla and mix gently.
Transfer half of the mixture in another bowl and add the melted chocolate. Blend well.
Alternate large spoonful of dark and light batters in the pan. To marble: Run a knife through the batters. Bake for about 45-50 minutes. Remove cake from oven and let cool and rest for about 30 minutes. Run a knife both sides of the pan and turn the cake out to cool.
