It’s time to make cakes and share with friends again. 2 friends came to my mind, so I need to make a bigger one. It has to be impressive and delicious. After much thought, I remembered my sister used to make marble cake. It looked awesome and tasted so good. I thought I’ll do something different. I would love waving lines. I saw it somewhere but can’t remember where. I guess it has to go in circles to create that wavy look of different colour. I thought Zebra Chocolate Butter Cake is just the right name after I cut the cake. It looked great and tasted awesome. Here’s how I did it:
2t vanilla essence
4C self-raising flour
Beat butter and sugar in a big mixing bowl. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla essence and mix well.
Add the flour and milk and mix well.
6T cocoa powder
1/3C hot water
Mix the cocoa and hot water together.
Divide the batter above into 2 equal portions. In one portion, mix the cocoa mixture of Ingredients B.
In a paper-lined tin, put a scoop of plain one in the centre. Then add a scoop of the cocoa batter into the centre of the plan one. Gently push it out. Keep repeating alternately until all the batter is used up. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 40 minutes or until the skewer inserted into the middle of the cake came out clean. Let it cool down before cutting.
Do not over bake the cake or use too high temperature otherwise it will crack like mine here and the cake will be a little dry. It happened to me this time because I was caught up doing something else and I forgot to use a lower temperature of 180 degrees Celsius. I used 200 degrees Celsius. This was one of the very rare times that my cake came out like this. But it still tasted very well though, could have been much better of course.
