This is an adaptation of the Misfit Baker’s wonderful snicker doodle loaf recipe (if you haven’t yet, do check out her blog, she bakes the most wonderful vegan goodies). I made a version of the cinnamon loaf and it was such a big hit with the entire family that I decided to try a different flavour combo.
The sugar, cocoa and cinnamon swirl makes this cake quite different and rather pretty!
