Zebra Cake

I have always wanted to bake my own cake, in a convention oven for a long time. Never did it dawn on me that it would be this simple!! Thanks to internet. I searched many a websites to see different versions of a cake and finally selected Roshan's Cucina. Her's contained egg, so I substituted it with alternatives. Roshan also happened to be my Blog Hop Partner for Feb and Chocolate Cake was this month's Crazy Cooking Challenge. So here's my Zebra Cake!!!

Ingredients
All Purpose Flour - 2 cup
Castor Sugar - 2 cup
Butter - 1 cup
Milk - 200 ml
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Cocoa Powder - 1 tbsp

Method
Mix and sift all purpose flour, castor sugar, baking powder, baking soda three to four times.
Soften Butter in a deep dish bowl. Mix milk and start adding the flour little by little. Whisk well, make sure no lump is formed.
The mixture will be in a silky consistency. If its too thick add some milk, and if too watery add some flour.
Seperate the mixture into two. Add vanilla essence to one portion and cocoa powder to another.

Grease a cake tin with butter or line it with parchment paper.
Pour a spoonful of choco mixture in the center,  then a spoonful of vanilla mixture.Again pour choco mixture, keep alternating until both mixes are empty.

Preheat oven to 200 degrees and bake for 20 minutes, until the pick comes out clean.

The cake by itself looks great, but you can top it with chocolate frosting and chocolate shavings.
