Brown Sugar Marble Pound Cake

This is my “accidental” brown sugar pound cake. You see, the first few times I baked it, I found the texture a little too dry. I revamped the recipe adding more brown sugar and replacing butter with oil. It turned out to be one of the best pound cake decisions in the world! The result is one intensely rich cake with a tight, dense crumb. The vanilla and chocolate batters are made from the same brown sugar base, so it’s an easy dessert to throw together. My favorite part is cutting into that first slice and unveiling the beautiful chocolate swirls!

Directions

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Spray a 9 x 5 inch (23 x 13 cm) loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until combined. Whisk in the milk, oil, vanilla, and vanilla seeds. Set aside. In a large bowl, toss the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Do not overmix. Remove 1 cup of the batter and pour into a small bowl. Stir in the cocoa powder. Pour one-third of the vanilla batter into the prepared loaf pan. Spoon 1∕3 of the chocolate batter on top. Repeat until both batters are gone. Gently swirl a large knife through the batter, making rounded horizontal zig-zags from one side of the pan to the other. Wipe the excess batter from the knife. Repeat the swirling pattern in the opposite direction. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, making sure to loosely cover the cake with aluminum foil halfway through to prevent the top from getting too brown. The loaf is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out practically clean with only a few moist crumbs. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool completely in the pan set on a wire rack before removing and slicing. The cake will stay fresh, covered, at room temperature for up to 4 days.

Sally's blog is the only food blog I go to for recipes. I pre-ordered her cookbook as soon as I could because I knew she would put as much love and care into every recipe, photo, and lesson in her book. I received the book the other day and have already made her caramel corn (page 94), the gingersnaps (page 117), the lemon poppyseed muffins (page 13), and cake batter chocolate chip cookies (the cover recipe which is on page 106). Everything I made disappeared quickly and were all loved by my family, especially my children. I can't wait to make the brown sugar marble cake next. It looks so easy, yet elegant.

What I love about Sally's cookbook is that she took the time to include both cup and gram measurements, which is so helpful to those of us who like to be extra accurate with our measuring. Every single recipe has a beautiful photo to go along with it and the photos are on the opposite (or the same) page as the recipe, so you don't have to go flipping through the book to find the recipe's photo. Sally's recipe instructions are numbered, so it's very easy to follow along and remember where you left off in a recipe as you are going.

I own a lot of cookbooks and I usually find I want to make only a few recipes from each. But I will definitely be trying out every single one of the 75 recipes in Sally's cookbook! The whole book is full of winners.

If you are a fan of Sally's blog, buy this cookbook. If you've never read Sally's blog, buy this cookbook. If you've never baked a day in your life, buy this cookbook. It is so worth it. The directions are clear and easy to follow and the photographs are beautiful. The recipes don't require any funky ingredients that you'll never use again either. So far, I have only made the double chocolate muffins which came out looking exactly like the picture and received rave reviews from my friends. This will definitely be my go to cookbook for desserts from now on.

There may be billions of cookbooks out there, but there is only ONE Sally. Every recipe that I have tried on her blog (and I've tried at least 20!) are incredible. Easy to follow, basic ingredients, DELICIOUS results. EVERY. TIME. So, it was a no-brainer for me to pre-order this book.

If you hate long reviews, here's the quick & dirty:
- EVERY recipe has a beautiful picture (so you know what you'll be making and if yours looks right).
- The instructions are straightforward.
- The ingredients are nothing WILD or something you won't be able to find.
- The flavor combinations are never weird or risky sounding.
- Your baking/cooking level is irrelevant. (Anyone can make these recipes and EVERYONE should.)
- Unlike other cookbooks, there are more than just 1 or 2 recipes worth adding to your collection. (You'll easily find 50!)
- Includes seasonal treats, classic treats, breakfast treats & even HEALTHY treats.
- Bottomline: There is simply no reason NOT to buy this cookbook.
- If you don't believe me, go to SallysBakingAddiction.com and try the first recipe you see. Then come back here and read this: I TOLD YOU SO.

Other insanely smart reasons for buying this cookbook:
- Double Chocolate Muffins: what!
- Powdered Sugar Doughnuts: um, YEAH.
- Salted Caramel Rice Krispie Treats: your new favorite thing about life!
- Sweet Peach Pie: hey everyone, meet THE SHIZZ.
- Cinnamon-Sugar Soft Pretzels: just try to stay calm. JUST. TRY.
- GIANT Oatmeal Raisin Cookies: because you secretly adore wearing your fat pants.
- Dark Chocolate Butterscotch Cupcakes: it's like pure evil. for your mouth.
- NEED I GO ON?

Like anything we buy, everything has it's pros and cons. The pros of this cookbook are as follows:
1.Great pics for every recipe---it's hard for most people (especially those new to cooking) to make a new recipe without a pic for a guideline...
2.Helpful hints are included that you can use with other recipes you may already have...
3.Interesting format regarding "getting to know" the author...i.e. family pics and her dog and fiancé etc...makes for enjoyable reading and her style of witty writing is a bonus...
4.Versatility of the recipes---many things can be substituted or added/subtracted without the end result being a catastrophe...For example if you are making cookies for a "black and white" themed party, you can take the recipe from which the cover pic comes from and instead of adding colored sprinkles, just use chocolate ones so you have a cookie to match the theme or use a variety of nut butters to replace the peanut butter in some recipes to add a little variety... Love the fact that the soft chocolate chip cookie recipes you can add different things (more choc chips, toffee bits etc..) once you take them out of the oven.

The cons of course are all mainly falling under the category of taste/texture preference.... For example, if you tend to like your muffins/cupcakes on the lighter texture-side, then maybe some of the ones in this book won't appeal to you...However if you are a fan of that "banana-bread-like" density, you would be loving those recipes... Same thing with sweetness factor etc....It's all subjective to what you like...Doesn't make one wrong or right...just preference...
