Hidden Zebra Cake ..... yummyy

Hellooo to everyone out there !!!

Itt came an idea to me yesterday to post a recipe for Zebra cake... it's such an easy thing to bake and so delicious to eat ....  I know my today's post it's different from the others that I've post past days/months, but I think when you mix something will be more fun and beautiful then black and white world ... don't you think ??!!



I actually this zebra cake baked in my kitchen and inspiration came from Lorraine Pascale she i s cooker, A long held dream was realised with her first television cookery series ‘Baking Made Easy’ being launched as a prime time TV show on BBC Two. I've watched her series on 24 kitchen channel and i've loved how she cook and bake...

Like a lot of people, I have a really sweet tooth so love nothing more than making these scrumptious cakes for dessert and for when friends and family come round.  For the strawberry and cream mini cakes you don’t need a kitchen mixer. The recipe is a great one to do with the kids and leaves you no excuses not to get baking this weekend!"


 
Prep time: 25 minutes
Time baking in the oven: 35 minutes
Makes: 12 wedges
Equipment: 23cm springform sandwich tin, large baking sheet, large bowl, medium bowl, zester,wire rack


Ingredients :
250ml sunflower (or other flavourless) oil, plus extra for greasing
250g caster sugar
100ml semi-skimmed milk
4 medium eggs (at room temperature)
A few drops of vanilla extract
300g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
25g cocoa powder
1 orange

Preheat the oven to 180°C, (fan 160°C), 350°F, Gas Mark 4. Grease the bottom of the sandwich tin with a little oil, line with baking parchment and oil again. Set aside on a large baking sheet.
Put the oil, sugar, milk, eggs and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat everything together well. It is best not to use an electric whisk as it will introduce too many bubbles, which are not needed for this cake.
Pour out 400ml of this mixture (or 400g as it is the same in weight) into a medium bowl.
Sift 175g of the self-raising flour into one bowl along with ½ teaspoon of the baking powder. Mix well and set aside. This is your vanilla mix.
Sift the remaining 125g of self-raising flour and ½ teaspoon of baking powder into the other bowl along with the cocoa powder. Finely grate the orange zest in, mix everything together well and set aside. This is your chocolate mix.
Now, put a tablespoon of the vanilla mix in the middle of the tin. Then, using a clean tablespoon, put a blob of the chocolate mix in the middle of the vanilla one. Keep doing this, alternating between vanilla and chocolate, so you form a type of ‘bull’s eye’ or ‘target board’ look. Each time you dollop a blob in, the whole mix will spread out on the base. By the time you have used up both of the cake mixes, they should have just reached the edge of the tin.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
Check the cake is cooked by inserting a skewer into the centre. It should come out clean. If not, then return to the oven for another 5 minutes or so until cooked. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin. Then carefully remove from the tins and leave to cool completely on a wire rack (but it is also fine to eat it warm!).
Cut the cake into six wedges to reveal its spongy gold. Arrange on a cake stand or platter and serve.



I hope you all around the world liked my today's post, and I hope you'll stay in positive energy and in good mood .... I wish you all the best .... Have a great night & day.... Sweet dreams... kisses to everyone and free hugs ........
