Chocolate Marble Bread – Deliciously moist and fluffy vanilla bread marbled with chocolate, and topped with chocolate ganache. Perfect for chocolate lovers!
Can’t decide whether you want to bake vanilla bread, or chocolate bread? Today, I have combined the two together so you can have the best of both.
I bring you my Chocolate Marble Bread!
This bread is incredibly moist and fluffy, and is loaded with chocolate and vanilla flavour. I’ve also topped it with a gorgeous chocolate glaze for extra indulgence.
How to make Chocolate Marble Bread
Ingredients you’ll need:
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Large eggs
- Vanilla extract
- Unsalted butter
- Sour cream: You could also use yogurt or buttermilk.
- Cocoa powder
For the glaze:
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
- Unsalted butter
- Light corn syrup/golden syrup
To make this bread, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, butter, and sour cream. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.
Pour half of the mixture into a separate bowl, and fold in the cocoa powder.
Spoon a dollop of each mixture alternately into an 9×5″ loaf pan lined with parchment paper, then using a toothpick, swirl the two mixtures together. Bake for 50 – 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
For the glaze, simply place the chocolate chips, butter, and syrup in a heat-proof bowl, and microwave until completely melted and smooth, stirring every 20 seconds.
Drizzle the glaze over the cooled bread, and leave to set.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
