Sweet Cream & Chocolate Marble Loaf

Sweet Cream & Chocolate Marble Loaf (adapted from Pinch of Yum)

1 ¼ cup flour
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
½ can sweetened condensed milk
⅓ cup milk (I actually used half milk, and half heavy cream)
1 beaten egg
⅓ cup melted butter, slightly cooled
1 1/2 Tb cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325. Grease and/or line a loaf pan with nonstick spray/ parchment paper.

Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar together in a medium bowl. Add the vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, milk, egg, and melted butter. Stir until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan, reserving about ½ cup of the batter. Whisk cocoa powder into the remaining ½ cup batter. Pour the chocolate batter over the regular batter and marble with the tip of a knife, making “s” motions throughout the batter until the two batters are swirled together in a nice pattern. Tap a few times on your counter (or table) to release any air bubbles, and sprinkle with chocolate chips. 

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing.
