[better later than never… delicious start in 2015] magical zebra cake
Finally after January has already started a couple of days, here is my first post of 2015! The last weeks were pretty stressful because so many things are happening right now like journeys and trips I have planned and university stuff that needs to be done…
Also some amazing things related to my blog are happening in the next weeks and of course I will share them with you as soon as I can. I will reveal one little thing, I am going to travel to the southern parts of Germany and meet some new people.
You see, lots of new experiences and things… Therefore it’s time for an easy recipe like this!
This magical zebra cake is ready to bake in less than 15 minutes! The highlight of this cake is the rotational layering of vanilla and chocolate dough which produce the distinctive zebra pattern. Looks more complicated than it actually is! Just serve with confectioner’s sugar which matches perfect to the slightly moist texture of the cake.
