I didn't follow the recipe instructions, which weren't specific enough. I put the sugar in the blender for 20sec to turn it into superfine sugar, so it would dissolve more readily into the batter. Then, I creamed the butter for 3mins, added the superfine sugar and beat for another 3mins, added eggs and beat until smooth and fluffy, about 2mins. Then I sifted the dry ingredients except cocoa together, and added to the batter alternating between the flour mixture and the milk. At this point, I was using a spatula to fold the ingredients in. After taking some batter out for the choco part, I also sifted the cocoa powder to get rid of lumps. Not sure how it would have turned out if I wasn't so fussy about mixing, but mine seemed fine. Also used both almond and vanilla extracts. I also reduced flour, and a bit of sugar. It still seems a bit dry. My mom liked how it was nice and crusty around the edges fresh out of the oven though. Well, let's see how its like tomorrow. UPDATE: Blergh. It's too dry... I like my old marbled yogurt loaf recipe better.
