Recipe from: AZ Cookbook
Makes one 9″ cake
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk, at room temperature
1 cup veg. oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp baking powder or 1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Grease and line the cake pan and keep aside.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC.
Cream the eggs and sugar till light and fluffly.
Add the milk, vanilla extract and oil and continue beat till it is well combined.
In another bowl, sift the flour and the baking powder. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mixing till incorporated. Do not overbeat.
Divide the batter into 2 equal portions. Keep one as it is and add the cocoa powder to the other and mix well.
To assemble the cake, remember that you need to work quickly. Start by spooning 3 heaped tbsp of the plain batter in the middle of the prepared cake pan. Then spoon the same amount of cocoa batter over this batter in the middle. DO NOT TILT OR TWIRL THE PAN. JUST KEEP SPOONING THE BATTER ONE OVER THE OTHER ALTERNATING THEM. The batter will spread out on its own. Don’t try to help it do that or you’ll interfere with the lines. Continue till all the batter is done.
Carefully place the pan in the oven, trying not to disturb the layers. Bake for about 40 minutes or till done.
Remove from the oven and take the cake out of the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
You’ll have yourself a gorgeous looking cake. Stand back and admire.
