Last Friday, I made marble pound cake with a white chocolate glaze. I’ve always wanted to try to make marble pound cake because the swirling seems so fun. I used the recipe from Martha Stewart’s baking book. In order to make the swirls, I scooped the chocolate and regular batter into the loaf pan in a checkerboard pattern and then using a butter knife, I swirled.
Then for the glaze, I needed some milk. But, my refrigerator was broken (the temperature in there was 58 degrees F) so I was hesitant to use the milk in there. And I was too lazy to go to the store. Thus, I had to settle with using water, which worked just fine. After I poured the glaze over the pound cake, I had to let it set before I could cut into it. I was very eager to see how my swirls turned out. When I finally did cut into the pound cake, it was somewhat anti-climatic. I really have no idea what “good” swirls should look like. Mine looked good and swirly enough to me.
