Batsheva Weinstein, Editor; Distributed by Feldheim. 
This babka is “As addictive as it gets. Don’t say you weren’t warned.” 

Ingredients: 
Batter 
4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
¾ cup margarine (1 ½ sticks)
2 Tablespoons vanilla sugar
½ cup canola oil 
1 cup plain soy milk 
4 eggs 
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
pinch of salt

Marble:
1 cup cocoa
1/3 cup oil
½ cup boiling water
3 cups confectioners’ sugar 

Directions: 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease and flour 3 medium loaf pans or 2 10-inch tube pans* 

Batter: 
Mix flour, sugar, margarine, vanilla sugar and oil in a large bowl until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Remove 1½ cups of crumbs and set aside 
Chocolate Marble: 
Whisk cocoa, oil, boiling water and confectioners’’ sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Divide into 2 separate bowls 
Assemble the cake:
Divide batter between prepared pans, filling 2/3 of pans with batter. Drizzle one bowl of chocolate marble over batter in each pan. Create marbling by swirling marble in with a knife. Drizzle second half of chocolate marble over cakes and top with reserved crumbs. Bake 50-55 minute or until toothpick place in center comes out clean Remove from oven and cool.

Notes: 
We found that the amount of ingredients in this recipe made one 10” bundt pan and one 6” bundt pan, somewhat less than the recipe indicates. We also found that we couldn’t stop eating this delicious cake!
