  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees top / bottom heat. Lightly grease a loaf pan (30 centimeters) and line it with baking paper so that it protrudes slightly towards the top.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and mix together.
  3. In another bowl, mix the pumpkin puree with sugar, oil and orange juice.
  4. Add the pumpkin puree mass to the dry ingredients in the bowl and mix everything together to make a relatively thick dough. tip: A little milk or flour can be added as required.
  5. Transfer half of the pumpkin pie batter to a second bowl. Add the cocoa powder and coffee to this and mix everything together well. Then the chocolate drops are stirred in.
  6. Pour half of the slightly orange-colored batter into the baking pan, then splash half of the dark batter over it. Repeat this process with the rest of the batter until it is all used up.
  7. Now run a fork through the dough to create a marbling. Then put the mold in the oven and bake the cake for about 60 minutes (stick test!).
  8. After baking, let the cake cool in the pan for at least 20-30 minutes. Then it can be carefully lifted out of the mold with the baking paper and placed on a wire rack to cool down further.
  9. As soon as the pumpkin marble cake has cooled down completely, cut into slices and serve. Good Appetite!
