Eggless Zebra Cake

Zebra Cake i wanted to bake this cake since long time as i love the striped pattern of it. And its a cake with both vanilla and chocolate flavour in one. Key point for it is perfect consistency of batter to achieve proper stripe pattern it should not be too thick nor too thin.
Lets gather its ingredients now.

Ingredients :

2 cups All purpose flour/Maida
1.5 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Thick curd
3/4-1 cup Sugar ( i took 3/4 cup)
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1 tsp Vanilla essence
3/4 cup Milk at room temp
4 tbsp Cocoa powder
3 tbsp Hot water (for dissolving cocoa powder)

Method : In a mixing bowl sieve all dry ingredients including all purpose flour ,baking powder,baking soda and salt and keep it aside. In a separate bowl whisk sugar ,curd and oil till mixture is creamy in texture. Now start adding dry ingredients in it slowly slowly in 2-3 batches and add milk in between . Mix the batter nicely to form lump free batter and divide it into two equal portions and add vanilla essence in one portion and mix well.

Take hot water add cocoa powder in it and form smooth paste add this into other portion of cake batter and mix well. Two batters are ready one with vanilla flavour and other with chocolate flavour.

Take 8 inches greased cake tin take 1 tbsp of vanilla batter and pour in center of cake tin now pour 1 tbsp of chocolate batter in middle of vanilla batter. Continue the process of pouring 1 tbsp of vanilla batter followed by 1 tbsp of chocolate batter till batter is used. It will form beautiful pattern of stripes like shown in image attached.

Pre heat the microwave at convection mode at 180 degree for 10 mins and than bake the cake for about 35-40 mins at same temp and mode till cake is done. Mine took 35 mins in total. Once done bring it out and keep on wire rack for cooling purpose .

Once it is cool than cut it down into slices and serve .
