Zebra Cake

>> Monday, July 12, 2010

Here is this week's cake of choice and lemme tell you guys, this is not my invention!! I saw this in Farida's AZ Cookbook and I've been promising myself that one day I'll give it a try.. And atlast I did it and it came out "Wowy!!". Just two batter used alternately, such a simple thing to do and you are ready to impress your guests.

4 large eggs
2 Cups of All-Purpose Flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 Cup of  Oil
1/2 tsp (15 g) vanilla powder
3 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp dark chocolate syrup / cocoa powder ( I've used Hershey's genuine chocolate syrup)


Preheat oven to 350F (180C). In a large bowl, mix together eggs and sugar. Beat until the mixture is light and creamy. Stir in milk, oil and vanilla powder.
In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder. Add it to the wet ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth.

Divide the mixture into two halves. Add chocolate syrup/ cocoa powder to one half and mix well.
Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with oil. Now comes the assembling of the cake. Put 3 tbsp of vanilla batter into center of the pan. Then put 3 tbsp of chocolate batter in the middle of vanilla batter. Do not stop and wait until the previous batter spreads. Continue alternating spoonful of two batters until all the batter has been used up.
Bake in the oven for about 40 mins. Let the cake cool for 10-15 mins. Remove from the oven. Turn out the cake, reinvert on to a wire rack and let it cool.

This is a very plain cake and goes well with a cup of hot tea or coffee.

Reshmi, I am a new baker, never tried this, but always love how nicely it comes. I think this is the work of the patience :)

Yes priya, this cake needs a lot of patience. If you see other blogger's zebra cake, they've more number of layers but due to my lack of patience, i ended up very soon.. :D
