Marble Pound Cake with a Hard Chocolate Crust

Ingredients

1½ cups (300 g) sugar
¾ cup (170 g) butter or margarine
3 cups (375 g) flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup (240 mL) orange juice
2 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
½ tsp. salt
¼ cup (30 g) cocoa powder
1 cup (240 g) chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF (180°C). Grease a 10-inch (25 cm) tube or Bundt pan.
Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add remaining ingredients, except cocoa and chocolate chips, and beat until well mixed.
Pour half of batter into pan.
Add cocoa to remaining batter and mix well.
Pour or spoon into pan over white batter and swirl with a knife to obtain marbled effect.
Bake for 45–60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Immediately after the cake comes out of the oven, pour chocolate chips over cake.
Allow the chocolate chips to melt for a few minutes and then smear over entire cake with a knife.
Allow the cake to cool completely, then place in fridge to harden chocolate before turning cake out onto a plate.
The chocolate chips create a crust that will be difficult to cut through, but well worth the effort.
Serves 10–12.
