Grandma’s Marbled Loaf Cake

This cake is in loaf form so it tastes like a cake but looks like a slice of bread. It’s mindboggling!

What isn’t confusing about this yummy dessert is how easy it is to make. The streusel filling is so sugary and sweet and you get some of it with every bite. I love it! And get this, you can toast this cake in your toaster oven and give it a bit of a crisp. How amazing is that? I’m so excited about this recipe and I know you will be, too.




1/2 cup of Kerrygold butter

1 1/2 cups of Domino sugar

3 Eggland’s eggs

3 cups of Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 cups of Miracle Whip

Streusel Filling:

1/2 cup Domino brown sugar

1 tsp McCormick cinnamon

1 Tbsp Toll House cocoa powder



Cream together the butter, sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

Sift together the flour and baking powder.

Mix the baking soda into the salad cream.

Alternately add the flour mixture with the salad cream into the butter mixture and beat until well combined.

Mix the streusel ingredients together.

Pour half the batter into 2 well-greased loaf pans.

Sprinkle half of the streusel

Top with the rest of the batter and streusel on top.

Take a knife and swirl the dough and streusel together to give it the marbled effect.

Bake at 350 for 35- 40 minutes.

Test if it is done by inserting a knife into the center and if it comes out clean it is done.

Let it rest in the pan for 5 minutes before removing. Finish cooling on wire rack.

After it has cooled completely cover tightly in a plastic wrap. It freezes very well. Share the other one!



Quick Tip: This recipe is easy to double so that you can freeze one loaf for later.
