Sweet Zebra Cake Recipe


Zebra Cake Recipe – Ingredients

  • 2.5 Glasses of Plain Flour
  • 1 Glass of Olive Oil
  • 1 Glass of Sprite (or other fizzy drink)
  • 1 Glass of Caster Sugar
  • 5 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cocoa
  • 2 heaped tsp Baking Powder
  • 15g Vanilla sugar (or, preferably, 1 scraped out vanilla pod)

Zebra Cake Recipe – Method

  1. Zebra CakeWhisk eggs with sugar until mixed.  In a seperate bowl sift flour and baking soda and mix together.
  2. Begin adding the ingredients to the sugar / egg mix.  Start by adding a quarter of each of the others (flour, olive oil, sprite) at a time and whisking until combined.  Repeat until all are added and then mix in the vanilla sugar.
  3. Seperate the entire mix into two equal bowls.  In one bowl add two tablespoons extra of plain flour and mix.  In the second add the cocoa and mix.
  4. Take a lined cake tin and pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of the white mixture into the centre, creating a small circle.  Next take 2 to 3 tablespoons of the dark mixture and repeat.  If you’re careful you should find concentric circles of alternating colours forming in the tin.  Repeat until all the mixture is used.
  5. Bake in an oven at 180 degrees for 50 minutes and then check the cake; stab with a cocktail stick to see if it is cooked (if it comes out clean, its ready!).  If not, leave alone for 5 minutes or so before re-checking
