Eggless Vanilla Chocolate Zebra Cake

 This is a chocolate vanilla cake with a lovely pattern formed by alternatively putting the two batters in a pan.This is a perfect tea time cake.

All purpose flour
1 1/2 cup
1 cup
3/4 cup
1/2 cup(I used sunflower oil)
Baking Powder
1 1/4 tsp
Baking Soda
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
Cocoa powder
a pinch

Preheat the oven to 180C
Grease an 8” round cake mould
Beat curd and sugar togthet till creamy
Add baking soda and baking powder to this and whisk well and keep it aside for 5 minutes for it to froth up
Now add vanilla and oil and beat well
Fold in the flour and mix well.
Divide the batter into two equal parts. Remove 2 tbsp of batter from one and add it to the other. Add cocoa powder to the portion from which the batter it removed. Mix well
Now start putting 1 tbsp of vanilla batter in the center of the batter. Do not shake it or level it.
Next put 1 tbsp of choco batter in the center of the previous batter that you have put. Do not attempt to spread it
Now add vanilla batter in the center, next comes choco, like this alternatively put both the batters without disturbing its postion.
Bake it for 40-45 minutes or until the skewer inserted in the center comes out clean
Transfer this to a cooling rack and after 10 minutes invert it on the cooling rack from the pan

Let it cool completely, slice and serve
