Marble Crumb Cake: I know you need it!

I know that you have the same feeling ^^, someday you just want some cake that easy but delicious enough to comfort you. Crumb coffee cake is one of it.

Marble Crumb Cake
 You don't need anything much to crate it, flour, butter, egg and sugar they are all in your kitchen but for this time, I just add a bit of chocolate and cocoa powder (I know that you have them too, hehe). With your own magic, the simple ingredients will turn into something special , soft and moist "Marble Crumb Cake" ^^.
I don't like very dense cake (now, haha, I'm not in the mood for pound cake). I want something soft and crumbly so I adjust a bit of this and that until I have the cake that I really want to eat.
For the chocolate part I mix my 70% chocolate with 50% (I hope that it makes 60% , right, haha) because I find that 70% is too bitter for some of my family members, and 50% is too sweet for me, so I let it be your choice, go for the flavor that you want, use darker or lighter but beware of the sweetness too.
I don't tell you anymore about how to enjoy this cake, because I'm happy with it anyway ^^.
