This Zebra Cake recipe is really impressive – people love the striped effect once you cut into it. I always thought some special skills were required to make a zebra cake, but it turns out anyone can get the same effect – even you!

Start by making a vanilla cake batter. Remove two cups of the batter and mix them with cocoa powder to make a chocolate batter. Layer the batter into the pan to create the stripes. If you mess up the layers, don’t worry – just add one batter on top of the other and using a knife or fork, create a marbled effect. Bake in the oven and once cool, serve as it is or top with chocolate glaze for a more professional looking cake.

To make Zebra Cake, you will need the following ingredients:
