1 cup of all purpose flour
¾ cup of multigrain flour
3 tablespoons of milk powder
teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of baking soda
½ cup of oil
¾ cup of powdered sugar
¾ cup of milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of hot water


1. Preheat oven to 170C. Grease a loaf pan.
2. Sift together all dry ingredients – flours, milk powder, baking powder and baking soda, keep aside. In a separate bowl, pour hot water on cocoa powder and mix well to form a paste, allow it to cool.
3. Cream oil and sugar till light and fluffy. Add the flour mix and milk alternately, starting and ending with flour to get a smooth batter. Add vanilla essence to the batter. Mix again. Adjust milk to reach desired consistency if needed.
4. Now add chocolate paste to the batter with a spoon & gently swirl with another spoon to make marble effect. Do Not use the same spoon for marbling & also Do Not mix uniformly. Both vanilla & chocolate mixture should show separately as marble effect.
5. Pour the batter in the prepared pan & bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow it to cool completely in the pan before de-moulding.

You may need to adjust milk if you find the batter too thick.
