  • Mini Loaf Pans
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Small Saucepan
  • Cooling Rack


  • 2 ounces Semisweet Chocolate
  • 3 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 5 Tablespoons Butter, softened
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease two mini loaf pans.
  • Combine the chocolate and milk in a small bowl over a simmering pan of water and heat, whisking continuously, until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and sour cream until smooth. Pour the butter-sugar mixture over the dry ingredients and fold together just until evenly combined.
  • Divide the batter in half. Add the melted chocolate to half and the vanilla to the other half.
  • Pour the vanilla batter into the prepared pans. Pour the chocolate batter over the top. Gently swirl the batters together with a a knife to achieve a marbled effect.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the surface of the bread is firm and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with just a crumb or two.
  • Cool the bread in the baking pan for 10 minutes before turning it out and allowing it to finish cooling.
