Milk Chocolate Marble Loaf Cake

Ingredients CAKE
4
large eggs
1 1/2
cups sugar
6
tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2
cup whole milk
2
teaspoons vanilla
1 3/4
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
3
ounces milk chocolate, chopped
CITRUS COMPOTE
1/4
cup sugar
1/4
cup orange juice
4
oranges, segmented
1
pink grapefruit, segmented
10
kumquats, halved (optional)

Directions

  1. Let eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Butter and flour a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  2. Position a rack in center of oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring 1 inch of water to simmering over low heat. Place a small bowl over the water, then place chocolate in the bowl. Stir with a rubber spatula until chocolate is melted. Remove from the heat.
  4. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture just until combined. Transfer about one-third of the batter (a generous cupful) to a separate bowl. Stir the melted chocolate into the small amount of batter, mixing well. Drop 1/4 cup of plain batter into the prepared pan, then dollop with 2 tablespoons of the chocolate batter. Continue layering both batters. Do not stir the batters in pan together.
  5. Bake cake in center of the oven about 1 hour and 5 minutes, until a wooden pick inserted into center of loaf comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan; completely cool on wire rack at least 40 minutes. To serve, top slices of loaf cake with Citrus Compote.
  6. Meanwhile, for Citrus Compote, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar and orange juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture is hot and sugar is dissolved. Transfer to a bowl; stir in orange and grapefruit segments and the kumquats (if using). Let stand for 1 hour. Serve with a slotted spoon. Compote can be made and stored up to 2 days.
