200 gr Sugar
3 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Essence
280 gr Self-raising flour
100 ml Milk

2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp milk

- Preheat oven 160C
- Beat butter, sugar and vanilla essence until light and fluffy.
- Add in the egg one at a time and beat until creamy.
- Fold in flour and milk alternately until well mixed (in two batches).

  4. Anncoo,
    thanks for your nice words :)However, I still not satisfied with the marble effect on the cake :( Next time, I will try on using chopstik instead of stick.

  5. DG, I use a fork to make the swirl. Alternatively, u can even try alternate spoon of the batter to make the zebra cake effect. :)

  6. DG, this is the method of the zebra cake
