Some times you get instant cravings at any part of the day and the urge is so intense that there's no way you can suppress..It happens to me number of times..I was craving for some chocolate cake and also wanted to bake a bread then suddenly while mixing the ingredients in the bread dough i thought of mixing cocoa powder and  making a marble chocolate bread instead..I had bookmarked  this  Asian Chocolate Marble Bread long time back but that called for water roux and  i had almost started mixing the dough .So i just continued with the same  and was more than happy and satisfied with the result..The Marble Swirl bread was cotton soft and looked very beautiful ....its was really difficult for me to resist but as i baked it at 3 am I sat quietly just staring at this beauty and waited for the morning to relish it...
