A Zebra Cake is just like a marble cake but the zebra pattern is created by pouring alternate cupfuls of vanilla and chocolate cake batter on top of one another.

The great thing about a zebra cake is that it looks so fancy and intricate but it's really so simple. It's the perfect cake to show off your baking skills and impress your friends at your next afternoon tea!

The zebra cake starts with vanilla batter that is divided in half and has cocoa powder added to 1/2 of it. The batters are then alternately spooned into the center of a prepared baking pan to form a bullseye design.

Zebra Cake
This delicious Zebra Cake Recipe is fun because of the zebra striped effect on the inside of the cake.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 4 (large) Eggs
  • 1 cup plus 1 tbsp White sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Flavourless oil (I like Light Olive Oil)
  • 1 tbs Vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs Unsweetened cocoa powder
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with a circle of parchment paper and lightly grease the bottom and sides of the pan.In a large bowl, mix together eggs and sugar until mixture is light and creamy and the sugar has mostly been dissolved. Stir in milk, oil and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture and mix just until blended. The batter will be of pouring consistency but not thin. Now pour half of the batter into another bowl. Add the cocoa powder to one portion and stir lightly to blend. Place the baking pan in front of you and then place the bowl of white cake batter to the left of the pan and the bowl of chocolate batter to the right of the pan. Using a 1/4 measuring cup for each of the batters, pour a cupful of the white cake batter onto the center of the pan. Then, pour a cupful of the chocolate batter directly at the center of the cupful of white cake batter. Alternate between the two batters and repeat the technique until all the batter has been used up. By the way, there is no need to wait for the batter to spread before pouring in the next cupful. Bake for about 40-50 minutes, until the cake is light gold and a tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Wait for about 10 minutes, invert onto a cake plate and enjoy this delicious and very pretty cake!Because of the oil content, this cake will stay moist and delicious for 2-3 days.

We enjoyed eating this yummy zebra cake straight out of the oven but, because of the oil content, it will stay moist and delicious for 2-3 days.
