Eggless Zebra Cake

I saw many pictures of rainbow cakes/marble cakes/zebra cakes.

But the last one caught my fancy. I just had to make it soon 🙂

The basic idea is to make the chocolate sponge mix and vanilla sponge mix overlap in layers.

I used the recipe as under for the sponge:

2 cup………………………Refined Flour/Maida

1-1/2 cup…………………Sugar [Fine grain]

1 Tsp………………………..Vanilla essence/extract

1/2 cup……………………..Vegatable oil [flavourless is better]

1/2 cup……………………….Milk

1-1/4 cup………………………warm water

1 tsp……………………………..Baking Powder

1 Tsp………………………………Baking Soda

1tsp……………………………….Lemon Juice

1 Pinch……………………………Salt

For the chocolate sponge mix:

In addition to the above-

1 Tbsp……………………………….Unsweetened cocoa powder

1 Tbsp……………………………… Drinking Chocolate

1/2 Tbsp…………………………….. Instant coffee

1/4 cup……………………………. Warm Water

Method:

  • Pre heat oven to 180 degree C.
  • Sieve flour, baking soda, Salt and Baking Powder.
  • In a seperate bowl mix together vanilla essence, Sugar, oil, water, lemon juice and milk.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and make a smooth batter.
  • Divide the mixture in roughly halves.
  • In one of the half add the cocoa and drninking chocolate.
  • Mix together the 1/4 cup warm water and coffee powder an add to the chocolate batter bowl.
  • Mix all well until you achieve the same smooth batter as that of the vanilla sponge.
  • Grease an 8 inch cake pan with Butter or alternatively line it with parchment/butter paper.
  • Pour the mixture alternatively 2 tbsp at a time from the center.
  • Do not force the mixture to take a direction.

  • Put in the oven for 30-35 min or until a toothpick comes out clean [insert it in the middle]
  • DO not open the oven door for the first 10-15min.

Well this was the end result 🙂 Do let me know how it goes for you.

Cheers,
