Marbelled coffee cake

Marta had handball practice for two hours yesterday. Some of the time they practiced shooting the ball with their left hand, and this morning Marta woke up with a totally stiff neck. I let her stay home from school, and after a few hours rest she was bursting with energy. I had to go to work for a meeting, but stayed home long enough to see the marbelled cake go into the oven, and came home to a wonderful treat for the afternoon coffee. Marta has started to learn cooking at school and love to play in the kitchen. One day she will be a perfect chef.

Marbelled Coffee Cake:

175g sugar, 175 soft butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar, 3 eggs, 225g white flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 50g dark chocolate.

Mix sugar and butter till it is almost white, blend in the vanilla sugar and then one egg at a time. Add flour and baking powder. Split the dough in two and add melted chocolate to the one half. Fill a pan with the white dough and then add the chocolate dough on top.

Bake in 190C for 30minutes.
