Zebra Cake


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 1 cup butter (200 g), at room temperature
  • 1 cup (240 ml) milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (375g) flour
  • 2 tsp (10 g) baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • For the chocolate batter
  • 3 tbsp (25g) cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup (50ml) milk
  • 1 tbsp (15g) sugar


  1. Grease a 24 cm (9 in) round cake pan (this recipe makes a lot of batter so if you have any left over, make cupcakes or another cake).  Preheat oven at 180 (350 F).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl mix the cocoa powder with 1/4 cup milk and 1 tbsp of sugar. 
  4. Mix butter with sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time and mix until well incorporated. Add vanilla extract. (An electric beater is helpful).
  5. With the mixer on low, alternate adding gradually milk and flour mixture until all is well incorporated.
  6. Remove two cups of the batter and mix them with the chocolate mixture. 
  7. Use one tablespoon for each batter to create the layers of batter on the prepared pan. Begin from the middle of the pan, take one spoon of white batter then over it add a spoon of chocolate batter and repeat this steps until all batter has been used. (If you don’t have the patience to make these layers just add one batter on top of the other and create swirls with a knife or fork to create the marbled effect)
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes on a cooling rack before removing from the pan.
  10. Serve as it is or top with chocolate glaze.
