This attractive reunion of the chocolate and the vanilla cake mixture tastes as impressive as it looks. Give this a try!

Cream - 1/2cup
Sour Cream - 3 1/2tbsp

In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and set aside. In a separate bowl, beat the sugar and the butter together until light and creamy. Add in the eggs one by one and beat after each addition. Break the chocolate into small pieces into a bowl and melt over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave. Mix in the coffee and about 60ml of the cream and set aside. In a separate bowl mix in the sour cream and remaining cream. Alternating between the flour and cream mixture, fold into the creamed egg mixture until fully combined. Halve the mixture into two and into one mixture add the chocolate coffee mixture until evenly colored. Into the other half add the vanilla flavoring. Lightly grease and flour a 3pint french loaf tin.

Lift the cake cake onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve cold cut into slices.
