Zebra cake

Here's some easy and effective cake. It doesn't require any special ingredients, as long as you have a bottle of a fizzy drink in your cupboard.

Ingredients for 12x25cm loaf tin:

3 cups and 3 tablespoons plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
5 eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup lemonade (or other fizzy drink)
1 cup sunflower oil (or vegetable oil)
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Sieve 3 cups of flour together with baking powder, set aside. Whisk eggs and sugar together until it's light and fluffy - it's gonna take around 10 minutes. Mix in extract and slowly bit by bit, taking turns mix in oil, lemonade and3 cups of flour, folding it with spatula. When you use up all the ingredients, divide batter in two even halves, adding 3 tablespoons flour to first and cocoa powder to second one. Grease the tin or line it with paper. Using ladles or big spoons, pour mixtures in the middle of the tin - one ladle at a time, alternating between white and brown batter until all the batter is gone. Bake it for around an hour in 170C, or until pick comes out clean. After it's cooled you can dust it with icing sugar or drizzle with melted chocolate.
Enjoy :-)
