If you were born in the 80s and lived in France, you probably know of the marble cake called Le Savane de Papy Brossard. Ça a bercé mon enfance, which I'd translate to "it sweetened my childhood". This coffee cake is a marbré cake. The beauty of this cake is its appealing look once sliced with its gorgeously marbled, streaked appearance made of vanilla and chocolate.
A generous amount of quality butter and a little milk made the cake moist and fluffy while milk chocolate provided the contrast in color needed for this sweet treat. I think the result was very close to the one I had when I was a child. My hope is that baby Aria will keep the same fond memories of this chocolate marble cake once she grows up!
