Step-by-Step Zebra Cake Guide

I promised my friend, SIG to show her the step-by-step pictures guide the next time I made the zebra cake, so here it is girl friend.


Two different colors batter.


First, put a dollop of white batter in the center of the pan.


Next, put a little dark batter on top of the white batter.


Then, you add another dollop of white batter on top of the dark batter.


Again, add another layer of dark batter on top. Just keep alternate different color of batter on top of each other until all batters are used.


I didn't do a great job on this as it was not center.


Example of how it would look like when baked and cut. Good Luck!

Recipe of this marbled banana chocolate cake can be found here.

I really salute you for taking the trouble to show the step-by-step process. And yet churn out a beautiful cake. I would have messed it up from the word go if I had to take photos on top of managing the 2 batters! Kudos to you.

pigpigscorner said...

So pretty! I always wonder how they do it. Thanks for the instructions!

Beau Lotus said...

Very interesting, first time I've seen a cake like this!

Corine said...

Hihi,

I tried the zebra cake today, using a recipe from a different source. I didn't get a dark cocoa batter like yours. =( I used 2 tbsps of Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder and I think mine looked kinda weird. hehe... Should I used the special dark cocoa instead? I will try again using your recipe next time. ;)

Little Corner of Mine said...

Hi Corine, yes you need to use the special dark Hershey's cocoa powder for the dark color. Feedback to me when you tried my recipe. This banana cake recipe is my favorite, very soft and moist. I used this recipe often to make banana cake.

Corine said...

Thanks,I will feedback to you once I tried your recipe. Btw, I have an award for you. Do come and grab it. =)
