Christmas Calendar 2019 Day 5 - Marble cake with Christmas twist

I have found this recipe on marble cake in the weekly magazine Søndag issue 46/2019. I decided to made various changes to the original recipe. To the plain version I decided to made the zest of an orange as well as some orange flower water. In the dark chocolate version I decided to exchange the dark with dark milk chocolate, as I dislike dark chocolate due to it's bitter taste.

As another suggestion on marble cake you could also look at this liquorice marble cake.
