Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda; set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat until well combined.
  4. Add about 1/3 of flour mixture and 1/3 of yogurt to sugar mixture; fold in until just blended. Repeat until all flour and yogurt are incorporated.
  5. Whip egg whites until stiff by not dry; fold egg whites into batter until blended. Divide batter into 2 bowls.
  6. Melt chocolate over a double boiler or in a saucepan over extremely low heat. When chocolate is just melted, pour into one bowl of batter; blend well. Add almond extract to other bowl of batter; blend well.
  7. Pour half of chocolate batter and then half of vanilla batter into prepared pan; repeat with remaining batter. Take a knife and run it through cake batter to create even more swirls.
  8. Bake cake until a toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove cake from oven; cool until bottom of pan is just warm to the touch. Carefully flip pan over and ease cake out of pan onto a wire rack; cool completely. Slice into 14 pieces and serve.
