However, this zebra cake of which I am bragging about happens to be a gem from that collection that mom must have gotten from someone else, while the outcome has become a favorite in our family. Nonetheless, it got the name from its signature zebra stripes, while it sometimes reminds me of a Brown Sugar Poundcake. Since this happened to be one of the initial recipes that my sister and I sister laid hands on as young teens and were successful too, I may vouchsafe that it is not at all so difficult to make as some often say.
In any case, let me caution you in regard to a few issues when baking this cake, as outlined below.
You must remember that a cake is the resultant product of a chemical fusion where a wide array of ingredients, subjected to high heat gives rise to certain effects. Butter cakes, not unlike pound cakes, as well as most layer cakes get their soft, fine texture by initially creaming together while adding eggs, and gradually incorporating dry ingredients provide the final result. Sponge and chiffon cakes get their typical, foam-like textures when whole eggs or egg whites are whipped and then folded into the batter. The air absorbed when whipping the eggs gives these cakes volume, making them springy and stretchy. So whatever cake you’re baking, make sure that you are following the recipe in toto.
