The only word for this is Chocolate and Vanilla Zebra Cake is SCRUMPTIOUS. I adapted the cake base from a mouthwatering Red Velvet Cake recipe by lovingitvegan.com by increasing the amounts and keeping the chocolate and vanilla separate. I don't own any piping bags (yet!) so it was very much a make-shift job, using plastic bags and cutting the corners off!
The original plan was to make a checkerboard cake but it ended up stripey...so I've labelled it a zebra cake 🦓
Recipe (for 2, 8" cake tins):
The basic cake mix is the same for both flavours. For the chocolate, the cocoa powder is added to the dry ingredients. For the vanilla, the vanilla essence is added to the wet ingredients. Make the buttermilk by adding 3/4 tbsp lemon juice to the 180ml milk (I used soya milk) and let rest for 1 minute.
Enjoy! If you have tried this recipe then please feel free to comment below and let me know how it went. If you have any questions then please ask and I'll do my best to answer!
