Eggless Zebra Cake - Day 6, Blogging Marathon#4

Zebra Cake, has been in my list for a very long time.   I made two cake mix, One White and another Chocolate and have alternated to get the Zebra Pattern. 
I baked this for the Weekend. My Kiddo was watching Spiderman Movie, He was super excited to see the Spider-Man Cake!! So before i could take the snap of the whole cake, Father-Son Duo have already devoured 2 slices of it!!! So, i couldn't take snap of the Full Cake. Here is a Slice for you all.

Ingredients : White Cake Mix
3/4 Cup Al-purpose flour/Maida 
6 tbsp Powdered Sugar
3/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
Salt – a pinch
1/2 Thick curd 
1/4 Cooking oil 
1/2 Cup Warm Water.
1 tsp Vanilla essence 
Method
Pre-heat the oven to 200C. Sift the flour twice and set aside. In a bowl, mix the curd and sugar until the sugar dissolves completely.Once done,add the baking powder and baking soda into the curd mixture. Mix well and set aside for 2-3 minutes. The curd will turn frothy and start rising and increasing in volume.Add the oil and vanilla essence to the curd mixture. Stir gently so that the air in the mixture is not lost.Next, gently fold in the flour. Dont stir very vigorously. Add the warm water and give it a nice, gentle Stir!!!!! Keep this aside.


Ingredients for Chocolate Cake Mix
10 tbsp All Purpose Flour
2 tbsp Cocoa
6 tbsp Powdered Sugar
3/4 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/2 Thick curd 
1/4 Cooking oil 
1/2 Cup Warm Water.


Method 
Sift the flour and cocoa together twice and follow the above procedure.
To Make the Zebra Pattern
Grease an 8"inch Cake pan. Add the a tbsp of white cake mix, wait for a second, let it spread a bit. Now add the Choco-Cake mix. Wait for it to spread a bit. Go on, alternate like this with white cake mix and Cocoa Mix. Giving a little time for the batter to spread.
Once done, you can make web pattern with a tooth-pick. Bake @ 200 C for 20 minutes and reduce the temperature to 170C and bake for another 15 minutes. Let the cake sit in the oven for few seconds. Take it from the Oven, Let it cool!!! Go head Slice and enjoy!!! Baking time differs from Oven, so to the tooth-pick test to confirm the done-ness of the cake. 
While Making the Cake Batter, First Mix the Curd and Sugar and add Baking Powder and soda and Keep it aside. While the Curd is rising for both the batters, Sift the Flour and Keep it ready. This way, you don't have to make the batter sit for a longer time and avoid thickening of the batter, which makes spreading a bit tough. I m a novice baker, i m sharing what i know and how i did, in-case i m wrong somewhere, please let me know, i love learn!!!!!
