Zebra cake


I’ve been so eager to write you this post! After three – yes three, attempts at various recipes for this cake, I finally find one that is the ‘bees-knees’! Or the zebra’s-knees! (Not funny, I know).
Anyway, why three attempts?! The shame!

Well, I’ll tell you. I kept trying the recipe in US format, with “cup” size measurements. So with me struggling to convert them to grams and ounces, lets just say I did a poor job … and the proof was in the pudding! (Ha. Excuse the pun).

When I first saw this cake, it was like cake-love at first sight! And to finally find a metric recipe to bring it perfectly to life: Oh, the joy!

Serve yours with orange cream or it’s great on is own!
