Another zebra cake

Another zebra cake by Fitri D. // Rumah Manis
ooh, how easy life with an Instagram app. is ; I can take a picture and update my cooking blog right away. No need carry a heavy camera. Well, for now I probably just keep a heavy camera at home and enjoy the IG :)  * thank you for my hubby who bought me an early anniversary present *wink*

Here another thing too - my family never get bored with zebra cake. I'm so sorry you might see me bake this a lot but that is because the cake is so delicious.

The recipe is almost same with marble chiffon cake I ever posted , the different is the way I create the layer of zebra pattern on it.

Zebra Cake (a.k.a Marble Chiffon Cake)

Ingredients and Directions :

A. Mix together :
30 gr chocolate powder
60 ml hot boiling water
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. vegetable oil

B. Mix and shifted :
280 gr all purpose flour
10 gr baking powder
6 gr salt
300 gr sugar

C. in medium bowl mix together using spatula or hand mixer
7 yolks + 180 ml water + 120 ml vegetable oil
make sure you mix the ingredients (c) very well, than add the B-mixture into it.

D. with stand mixer or hand mixer , whisk :
7 white eggs + 2 gr cream of tar tar - whisk for about 5 minutes until shinny and medium peak.
With a spatula , add the white egg mixture into yolks mixture (C)

Divide the batter into the equal amount, add one batter with the chocolate mixture (A)

Add lemon / vanilla essence or orange zest to the rest of white batter.

Now, is the fun part : How to bring Zebra strip effect

Now pour 1/4 cup of plain batter in side of baking pan if you using chiffon pan like mine - but if you use round pan, put the batter in the center of pan.

Then pour 1/4 cup of cocoa batter on top of the vanilla batter in the center

Do not disturb or try to shake it or wait for it to spread or tilt the pan for it to spread. It will spread by itself. Keep on pouring both the batter alternatively until all the batter is over.

Bake into the oven (350 F) for about 45 - 50 minute or until skewer comes clean.

Note :
This recipe for using chiffon pan ; so you don't grease your pan.

Turn pan up side down as soon as you take the pan from the oven. And keep it cool for a while.
