Cafe Campesino Coffee Pound Cake is a coffeehouse favorite in Americus, and once you master the process of swirling two batters together, the flavor combinations are endless!

Marbled Coffee Pound Cake

 1 lb butter, softened
 3 cups sugar
 6 eggs
 4 cups flour
 1 tbsp baking powder
 ¼ tsp salt
 1 cup very strong cold CafĂ© Campesino coffee
 2 tsp vanilla extract
 1 oz unsweetened chocolate

Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour the bottom and sides of a 10" tube or bundt pan.


In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar at high speed until light and fluffy


Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Set aside.


Sift together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix together the coffee and vanilla. Add dry and wet alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with the dry. Mix by hand-just enough to blend thoroughly without excess beating.


Transfer 1/3 of the batter into a small bowl. Add 1 oz. (1 square) melted unsweetened chocolate. Mix thoroughly.


Spread the batter into the prepared pan and spoon clumps of chocolate batter on top. Using a humble dinner knife cut through to the bottom of the pan and swirl the dark and light together to create a marble effect.


Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until a sharp knife inserted all the way down comes out clean. Let it cool down a bit and then turn onto a plate. Cool completely before slicing.
