Super Easy Zebra Cake

This cake is so easy to make it is not even funny. It is super easy and so pretty!

Ingredients:

-4 large eggs, at room temperature
-1 cup  granulated sugar
-1 cup milk, at room temperature
-1 cup oil (corn, vegetable or canola is fine)
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1/3 teaspoon vanilla powder (Or just vanilla extract)
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder (make sure it is not very bitter and dark zebra patterns won’t stand out with light cocoa powder)
- 9 inch (23 cm) non-stick round cake pan

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and sugar. Beat until the mixture is creamy and light in color

2. Add milk and oil, and continue beating until well blended.

3. In a separate bowl, combine and mix flour, vanilla powder (or vanillla in the liquid mix) and baking powder. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and beat just until the batter is smooth and the dry ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

4. Divide the mixture into 2 equal portions. Keep one portion plain. Add cocoa powder into another and mix well.

5. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C).

6. Lightly grease the pan with oil.

7. The most important part is assembling the cake batter in a baking pan. This is what you do. Scoop with a ladle the plain mix into the middle of the baking pan. Then scoop another ladle of the cocoa batter and pour it in the center on top of the plain batter.

IMPORTANT! Do not stop and wait until the previous batter spreads - KEEP GOING! Do not spread the batter or tilt the pan to distribute the mixture. It will spread by itself and fill the pan gradually. Continue alternating the batters until you finish them.

8. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes. Do not open the oven door at least the first 20 minutes or the cake will shrink and will not rise. Iinsert a toothpick into the center to see if ready. It should come out clean when ready. Remove from the oven. Immediately run a small thin knife around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake, then invert the cake onto a cooking rack. Turn the cake back over and let cool. You can sprinkle the top of the cake with some powdered (confectioner’s) sugar or leave it plain.

Great And Super Easy Coconut Mounds With Chocolate


These are so yummy and they are so easy to make. I personally do not like coconuts, so I made these for hubby and children. When I tasted them I fell in love! So good. Give them a try!

INGREDIENTS:

-2 egg whites, at room temperature
-1 pinch salt
-1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
-3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
-3-1/2 cups (875 mL) sweetened shredded coconut
-4 oz (113 g) bittersweet chocolate, melted

DIRECTIONS:

1- Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

2- In bowl, beat egg whites with salt until foamy; beat in vanilla. Beat in sugar, 2 tbsp (25 mL) at a time, until stiff peaks.

3- Fold (mix do not beat) in coconut.

4- Place 1 tbsp (15 mL), 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, onto prepared pan. Bake in centre of 325°F (160°C) oven until edges are golden, 18 minutes. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes; transfer to racks and let cool.

5- Dip bottoms of cookies into the melted chocolate. When melting do in small increments if you are doing it in the microwave so the chocolate does not burn. Refrigerate until hardened, about 10 minutes. (I put the coconut mounds again on parchment paper and place in fridge. You can dip the bottom into chocolate or take a fork and make nice little lines on the top.

You do not have to put the chocolate at all. That is how my family likes them:)

Cookies can be stored for up to 5 days or frozen for up to 1 month.
