Zebra Cake

Recipe from Jo

6 eggs
80g sugar
150g cake flour
1/2 Tsp baking powder

100g melted butter
30g condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

2 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp cocoa emulco
1 tbs warm water

-Dissolve [C] in warm water, set aside
-Beat [A] in high speed until thick ribbon
-Reduce to low speed,add in [B] until combine
-To make chocolate batter, fold [C] into one of the batter.
-Using tablespoon, scoop 3 tbs of uncoloured batter into centre of cake pan. Then, scoop 3 tbsp of chocolate batter onto the uncoloured batter you just scooped into the pan (8" round pan)
-Bake at 170 for 35 min

- I did a mistake here by dropping 1 Tbs instead of 3 Tbs
- My cake is not soft and fluffy, i wonder did i beat it to the right consistency

No idea what happened above, but that was a post from eons ago to another blog, and I can't seem to get it to stop doing that. However, I'll try again.

My question, regading your zebra cake is, you mentioned scooping 3 T of plain batter into the cake pan, then topping it with 3 T of the chocolate batter..and then baking. 6T of batter for the whole cake? I'm assuming you mean a 'layering' process of 3 T of each batter at a time, and then a swirl through it with a skewer or knife to get that marbled effect?

Sorry if my instruction is not clear. Yes suppose to layer 3 T plain batter follow by 3 T chocolate batter and repeat until all batter finish.

But for the above cake, i did a mistake of layering 1 T instead of 3 T

You do not need a skewer or knife to get that marbled effect.

Hope that helps

I made it using the 3 T drops (no swirling), and to be honest, I think it looks more gorgeous with your 1 T drops! I'm going to do it that way next time. That said..Your photos and baked goods are so beautiful and mouth watering :)

what is cocoa emulco used for? Is it necessary? Where can I find this?

cocoa emulco is just a chocolate essence, you may skip it. Can be found at bakery supplies shop
