Zebra Cake
« on: February 06, 2010, 01:39:01 am »
Hello

Today I made a wonderful cake. In addition to being original it is very light and fluffy.
Here it goes:

Recipe Name:
 
ZEBRA CAKE
 


Ingredients
5 Eggs
1 / 8 l Warm Water (125 mls)
1 tablespoon rum
250 grams Sugar
1 packet of vanilla sugar (I use allways 2 teaspoons homemade ;))
1 / 4 l Oil  (250mls)
375 grams of flour
2 teaspoons of Baking Powder
2 tablespoons Cocoa powder

Preparation
Separate eggs into yolks and whites.
Reserve the yolks
Whisk the egg whites with 2 tablespoons Sugar (take from the 250 grams!) - 5 minutes - level 3 -  50 ļ (with butterfly)
Reserve.

Remove the Butterfly.
Put the Yolk / Sugar / Water / Rum / vanilla sugar in the Thermomix -  4 min. / level 4
At the last minute put the oil on top of the cover with the measuring cup on so it drips slowly into the Thermomix.
Finally place the flour and baking powder and mix vel 1-2-3-4-5 / 1-2-3-4-5.
mix in the whites with spatula

Remove half of the mix and leave aside.

Add the cocoa in the remaining Mass and mix on level 3.

NOW:
Grease a pan with butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs.
Place a tablespoon of mass in the center then (with a nother) a Tablespoon of the other colored Mass direkt  overr the first one - CAUTION DO NOT SPREAD IT GOES  ALONE it will slip slowly!!!!!!

1 tablespoon light / 1  tablespoon dark  ......
It is very important that each mass has its own spoon!




Bake the cake at 180 degrees for about 40-50 minutes. All ovens are different!!!!
Everything depends on the size of the Form
If wider bake faster if closer is a little more!
Do the test with the straws in the center !!!!


Hope you like it!!
Byeeeee

VHJ - my boys pronounced it "superb". It really is very impressive to look at. My chocolate wasn't as dark as yours but I think it's time I invested in a better quality cocoa. Thanks for another great recipe Isi.

fruity - I made this (or a version) of this today, got interrupted after whipping the eggs whites and forgot to reserve them so added  the next ingredients in with it, batter worked brilliantly. Had enough to fill a spring form cake pan and 6 texan muffins, worked brilliantly apart from volcanoing at the top of the spring form pan, will cut it after tea for the boys 'zerters . The muffins have been given the thumbs up by the painter and the 4 (almost 5) old. I though I would do this for his birthday cake in a large rectangle and cut to ice it. Would be a huge surprise for the kids to see when it is cut.

Chookie - Made this ages ago.  Gave the GC a dish and spoon each and they formed the cake. Loved it.

Janie-123 - what are the measurements of water and oil 1/8 of what?? and 1/4 of what???  Just tried making this and my batter was not right at all.  I think as I had the wrong measurements.  Also, what should the egg whites be like at the end of whisking them with butterfly???  Mine seemed very warm and cooked almost, not like whisked egg whites???

fruity - I made it as 1/8 litre (ie 125ml) and 1/4 litre (ie 250 mls) and mine worked beautifully.

Fabulous!!  :-*

It has to be good with rum in it doesn't it?  ;)

My query is "a packet of vanilla sugar"... is that a teaspoon, tablespoon or do you have a weight?

I must say your english is improving wonderfully to match your cooking skills Isi!  ;D

Isi another lovely recipe. I often make a marble cake (3 colours) and have never thought of just putting it in the centre like that and letting it spread itself. Thanks.
