ZEBRA CAKE ~ absolutely worth it! ~

I have always been fascinated about this cake.There is nothing complicated though,but still :) And I did venture once, not with the below mentioned recipe, but another one  :D It ended up looking like a flower! LOL! Nevertheless it tasted good :)

Yesterday while I was blog hopping,I was in a mood for a cake, a simple one. I don't know why, but I suddenly had an urge to correct my flower into an animal ;) And within 10 mins the cake was in the oven!
I didn't want to cut it till this morning because I was unable to click pics then. For your kind information: No one in my house is allowed to even take a bite unless I finish my photosession :D But this time my dad broke my rule! :) My mom is out of town now, so I forgave him ;) How can I be strict then? LOL!

Recipe as adapted from Farida's blog

4 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup oil
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp dark cocoa ( I used Dutch-processed)

You can check Farida's blog for her step-by-step tutorial 

For all those who haven't yet tried this as yet, give it a shot! It is truly worth it! I was almost breathless when I cut into the cake : 

*I wasn't sure I would get the 100% Zebra effect
*It was so BEE-YOU-TI-FUL! :) *bliss*

Have a great weekend, lovelies! :)

Hi Ria!
I looovvveee this cake! And yours turned out great!
How did you manage to get the stripes so wide? Mine are thin...
Did you just use bigger amounts of mix?
