Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease tin.
Put butter in metal bowl and run EXPERT programme 1 minute/speed 5 (without heating) to soften butter.
Add sugar, salt, eggs, flour, baking powder, 40 milk and contents of a vanilla bean and run PASTRY/CAKE programme. Put half the mixture into tin and leave other half in bowl.
Put cocoa powder and 30 ml milk in bowl and run PASTRY/CAKE programme again. Then put chocolate and milk mixture on top of cake mixture already in tin and swirl with a fork to create a marble effect.
Cook cake for 50 minutes at 180°C. Before removing cake from oven, insert a skewer into centre. Cake is cooked when the skewer comes out clean. Turn out onto a cooking rack and leave to cool. Melt chocolate in clean bowl using EXPERT programme 10 minutes/speed 0/55°C and spread icing on cake. Eat as soon as icing has hardened.
