Keeping it simple, satisfying and sweet with this Gluten-Free Chocolate Marble Loaf. Today I wanted to make something chocolaty, sweet and delicious, but I did not want to use a long list of ingredients. A marble loaf is something I grew up with, except it wasn’t gluten-free. 

♥ Easiest gluten-free chocolate marble loaf recipe!

Today I want to show you how easy it is to make gluten-free chocolate marble loaf with simple steps and simple ingredients → using less than 10 ingredients and almost one bowl. What does that mean? Almost one bowl, well the entire batter is made in one bowl except at the end you scoop out some of the batter and mix it with cocoa, this is the chocolate marble part.

First, start with softening your butter and have all the ingredients at room temperature, like eggs and milk. Having everything at room temperature is the key to acquire the best results. Place the butter on your counter first thing in the morning, so it is ready to go when you are ready to do some baking 🙂 Using a large mixing bowl and an electric mixer cream the butter with sugar until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix to combine. Now you add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix. Here comes the fun part, scoop out one third of the batter into a separate bowl and mix it with the cocoa and a splash of milk. This is going to make the chocolate marble in the cake. The next step is easy, layer the loaf with three layers, starting with white batter, chocolate batter, then finish with white batter. Swirl briefly with a knife and bake. See how easy it is to make, there is nothing complicated about this chocolate marble loaf, and today is the perfect day to make it. It is the beginning of the week and having something sweet and satisfying with chocolate without going into too much trouble is just what is needed. This loaf is especially delicious chilled.

  • 1/2 cup salted butter (if you are using unsalted add 1/4 tsp. salt), softened
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or sweetener of choice
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp. milk (non-dairy is fine too), at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup plain full-fat yogurt (Greek yogurt is my preference because it is thick and creamy)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free all purpose flour blend with xanthan gum (add 1/4 tsp. if it does not include it)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
