|2 teaspoons||Baking powder|
|⅔ cup||Butter or margarine|
|⅔ cup||Cream or milk|
|1 cup||Chocolate chips; ( for glaze )|
|Sliced almonds or other nuts|
Measure and sift the flour and baking powder and set them aside. Using an electric beater, cream the butter and sugar. Add unbeaten eggs 1 at a time.
Add half of the flour and half of the milk, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add the remainder of the flour and milk, and the vanilla. Set aside ⅓ of the batter in another bowl. Add the cocoa to this. In a well-greased loaf pan or cake mold put alternate layers of light and dark batter, ending with light batter on top. Gently run a long-tined fork through all the cake batter to form a striped pattern. Bake it at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes. Allow the cake to cool completely. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Glaze the top of the cake with melted chocolate and sprinkle with nuts.
