Baking desserts is not really my thing. I avoid sugar and preparing sweet things. But I do enjoy light desserts which are easy for preparing and don't contain too much sugar. This dessert has been prepared in my family since I can remember. When I was a child, I would've eaten from the mixture before it was baked, hiding from my mom and waited in front of the oven to finish baking. My mom prepared it very often. If desired, you can also add nuts, and dried fruits.

zebra cake

  • 250 g sugar
  • 250 ml milk
  • 200 ml sunflower oil
  • 300 g flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 2 tbs dark cocoa
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  1. Whisk eggs and sugar. Add milk and oil and mix well.
  2. In another bowl sift flour with baking powder and vanilla and add to the eggs. Beat until smooth, but not too long so you'll avoid the appearance of air bubbles in the mixture.
  3. Divide mixture into two equal parts. Add cocoa to one part and mix.
  4. Oil and sprinkle with flour the bottom of a 23 cm round pan.
  5. Pour 3-4 tablespoons of the light mixture straight in the center of the pan. Then right at its center (of the light mixture) pour 3-4 tbs of dark (cocoa) mixture. So the procedure is repeated until the two mixtures are finished.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 180 ° C until ready.
