Cook's Note

Give It a Swirl
Insert a knife or skewer vertically all the way to the bottom of the pan, then swirl together the alternating vanilla and chocolate layers to create a marbled effect.


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter four 2-by-6-inch miniature-loaf pans (2 inches deep; not nonstick). In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder and 6 tablespoons hot water. Stir half the batter into cocoa mixture.

  2. Step 2

    Spoon 2 dollops of batter into pan next to each other, 1 chocolate and 1 vanilla. Repeat twice, alternating layers, and swirl.

  3. Step 3

    Bake until a skewer inserted in center of a cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 40 to 45 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Let cool completely in pans on a wire rack. Run a knife around edges, then turn out cakes.
