Hi. Namaskar. How are you? Hope all are doing good. Here all of us are fine. I have been getting complaints that I am not showing sweets or cakes. Its been long since I baked a cake. Usually I dont eat sweets. I add a pinch of sugar to my curries. Since many of you have requested, I thought I shouldnt put you down. I have come with an easy recipe of Zebra cake. Its even called marble cake. I have showed it in such a way that any person can make it. You dont need a beater. Can do with a fork. I have added eggs to this. You can make it without eggs too. I have mentioned that in the video. If you like the video, do share, like and subscribe if you havent. So without any delay lets see how to make our tasty cake. Now lets begin to make our cake. For that I have taken a thick bottomed kadayi. You can make it in such a vessel. People make it in aluminium and steel vessels too. But I have never done that. I have only made it in thick bottomed pans like these. Or you can make it in a cooker too. Those who have an oven can do it in that. If you are using a cooker, you should preheat the pan before hand To preheat the pan, place a base or a ring like this in the pan. This is done so that the cake tiin doesnt touch the pan directly else it will get burnt at the bottom. We will be placing our cake tin over this. If you dont have ring like this, just place a small vessel on the pan. Now place this like this and heat the pan closed on medium heat for 15mts. When its closed, the heat fills in the pan well. Lets keep this to heat on the other stove. By then we shall make the batter for the cake. Lets make the cake tin ready first. I have taken a non stick kadayi here now. I have removed its handle here. I am going to make the cake in this today. You can use any rectangle or square too. It can be a normal cake tin too. I have taken this tin just to show you. If you have a baking paper, place it on the pan. I had shown all that in my fruit cake/plum cake video. You can refer that to know more on it. I am going to apply some butter or oil over the pan and then dust some flour over it. Then the cake doesnt stick to the pan at all. Lets sprinkle some oil over the pan now. Spread the oil inside the pan. If you feel there is more of oil, discard the extrea portion. Lets dust some flour or aata into the pan. Spread the flour all over inside the pan. Since mine is a non stick pan, flour doesnt stick on to it. If its a normal pan, the flour will stick on to the sides. You dont have to do all this to a non stick pan. You can make the cake directly. I just showed it to you . Do not sprinkle lots of flour. Make sure to discard the excess flour from the tin. Lets keep this aside now. Now take 1.5 cups of flour. If you dont have a cup, this measures 21tbsp. The weight would be 187.5g. This is a standard measuring cup. I have taken 1.5 cups in this. So 375ml cups. I am saying all these in detail for you to understand in all ways. Lets sieve this 1.5 cups of flour through a siever. Place another bowl below the siever. Into that flour we shall add baking powder and baking soda. Always be careful on the dates of these powders. Add 1/2tsp baking soda first which is 2.5ml. Next add 1tsp baking powder. 1tsp is 5ml. Next we have to add very little salt. Too much of it would spoil the cake. This is just to balance the sweetness. Its best to sieve this 3 times. But I am sieving this just once. Make sure the baking powder and baking soda reaches all over the flour. Then sieve it. You can make cupcakes out of the same batter too. You can pour the batter to small paper cups or steel cups. Now after sieving the flour, take 1/2 cup sunflower oil. 1/2 cup oil is 8tbsp of oil. I have taken 125ml oil. Next we need powdered sugar. I have taken 10tbsp of powdered sugar. Next we need either eggs or curd. I am using 2 eggs here today. The eggs should be at room temperature. To substitute the eggs, you can use 1/2 cup curd. It should be room temperature. Just beat it and use. Let me beat 2 eggs in a mixi and come. Its not necessary to beat in a mixi. This is just to make our work easier. You can either use 2 eggs or 1/2 cup curd. Never use cold eggs to make cake. All the ingredients should be at room temperature. Lets pour the beaten eggs, oil, 10tbsp powdered sugar to the flour mix. This cake is medium sweet. It can vary for each person. Next add 1tsp vanilla essence. Its for not knowing the smell of the eggs. You can use a whisk or a fork and stir the mix well. Always make sure to mix the batter only to one direction. Now the batter should be looser than this Lets pour little by little of water. Make sure the water is also at room temperature. I have taken 1/2 cup water. But will pour only little by little. Mix them well. All these long baking a cake was a big task for me. Moreover I am not much intrested in sweets. Thats why I dont make much of cakes here. I have poured totally 1/4 cup of water. I think this will be enough. Lets mix this well. Many asked me if it can be done in a mixi. I shall try once. This flowing consistency is what we need. Taste and see how it is. Its perfect. Now lets divide this into two. We need a cocoa powder batter too. For that take 1tbsp cocoa powder in a glass. Add water as needed to make this a paste form. Make sure not to add too much of water. I have added 3tsp of water. Lets mix this well. Now lets divide our batter equally. I have kept 2 cups of batter aside. I guess the other one will be around 2 cups. Now add the cocoa powder paste to any one of these bowls and mix well. Make sure to mix in the same direction. The consistency should be flowing consistency. If you feel its thick, then add little water as needed. Now lets begin to assemble. You can pour the batter to a glass or piping bag or use a spoon here. You can even pour it to a ziplock cover and cut the end of it. Pour the white batter in the middle and then the chocolate over it. Continue doing it this way. Keep pouring it this way. Dont bother about the shape that comes. It will come to a shape at the end. I have done using a zip lock cover too. Its a big burden. Then I began to use a tbsp itself I felt this easier. Even a glass is convinient for this. I shall show you how it looks at the end. This takes time. At the end, you can use tsp. Finally tap the pan once or twice for the air bubbles to burst away. To make it more beautiul if you want you can draw lines like this It will look beautiful after its baked. It will look like a spider web. Now lets keep this to bake. Open the lid of the preheated pan, place the tin and close it immediately. Lets cook this on medium heat for 25-30mts. We shall open after 25mts and check if its cooked or not. Do not open it before 25mts or even in intervals. If you do so, the cake will flatten and not rise. Now after 25mts when I pricked the middle part, its little sticky. Lets cook this for a while more. Now after 35mts, its baked well. Lets take the cake out and keep it to cool. Once it cools down, I shall cut it and show you. Always use baking gloves or a towel to take the baking tin out. Lets keep this to cool. After that just go round the cake and the tin. Then turn the cake over and put it straight. Now our zebra cake is ready. Its a super spongy cake. I shall take pics and come and then cut and show you. I have cut it and taken pics. See how spongy it is. I shall have a small piece for you. For me this sweetness it correct. Its medium sweet. At the same time if you want it more sweet, you may have to add 12tbsp of sugar. You can adjust the sugar measurements according to your preference. You can cut it to slices like this and store it in an airtight container. It will stay for nearly a week in room temperature. We dont keep it in the fridge, so I dont know about it. I give it to our neighbours too and we too have. You can do as you like. This is another batch I made. I made it for my neighbour who loves more of chocolate. I added 1n3/4tbsp of cocoa pdr here. Then it became dark. Otherwise it was light in shade. This really has a zebra effect. You can make changes as you like. I just thought of showing you the difference. All fo you do try out our easy peasy zebra cake. Dont forget to send me your feedback after that. See you with my next video tomorrow at 1.30pm UAE. Thank you. Look at those two under the tree here in Dubai. They are talking to each other and having breakfast. I dont know how long it will stay there. Let me zoom and see. But the clarity reduces Lets try walking to it slowly. It flew away. Only one flew away, the other one is there. Let me zoom and see.
