Zebra Cake and Sponge Cake

I am in the infancy of baking and never thought I could post a cake picture and recipe in my blog within a short time. I hope the baking experts here can tell me whether it is "good-looking" or not. However the taste was wonderful. The zebra cake which I tried out is coming from my friend Farida's Azerbaijani Cook Book, and of course the photo is also from her, mine was not beautiful as the original. It was Jeena, who helped me to try out new cake recipes, even sent step by step pictures and patiently answered all my queries. Thanks to Jeena and Farida for your help..

  8. Seena, I am glad you tried the zebra cake:) Thanks for linking, too. Your sponge cake looks great! You did a great job. Did you try making zebra cake with sponge cake? Zebra patterns usually do not look that good on sponge cakes because of their spongy soft texture. You are such a great cook, so many recipes, one after another, I am still trying to keep up:)

  15. Hey,
    Sponge cake looks very delicious.Adding ghee instead of butter may have enhanced its taste, isnt it? I have been toying with the idea of using ghee for cakes for quite a few weeks. And I checked Farida's Zebra cake too. It looks pretty.Does it require too much patience to pour the batter:)-

  17. Thanks friends,

    Welcome!thanks for visiting..
    I mostly use ghee for making cake, esp. pure ghee. Zebra cake needs patience, I din't take the exact amount of batter while halving it, so my chocolate batter was too much..So didn't get perfect lines..

    Hope to see you again.. :)
