Zebra Cake Recipe

CAKE

I love cooking and more so baking. There’s just something about how the flavors of baking fills up your house once the baking begins. I love how the house smells when I bake. And I love to challenge myself too. So when I saw a Zebra Cake while scrolling recipes, I decided to try it out. To say I was anxious is an understatement. Especially the mixing of layers. It seemed hard but once you get the flow, it’s pretty simple, but I can tell you it’s a labour of love getting all those layers right. So I searched for the simplest recipe I could find and I stumbled upon this one from http://www.homecookingadventure.com/ the cake was AWESOMEST! It was moist and well done. Here’s the recipe I used
