Zebra Cake


First of all, I know the quality of this photograph is terrible. I do apologize. It’s because this picture was taken a while ago with my iPhone, and I just figured that I had to share this cool recipe with you! I’m sure a lot of people have seen this zebra cake before, but for those who haven’t – check it out!


Get any 2 boxes of cake mix (I used vanilla and chocolate, but feel free to get creative with food colouring!)


Prepare each cake by following the directions on the back of the box (obviously don’t put it in the oven yet!)

Make sure each cake batter is in it’s own bowl. Vanilla in one bowl, chocolate in the other.

Start by dropping 1/4 cup of vanilla batter into the middle of an 8″, greased pan.  It will spread a little bit.

Measure out a 1/4 cup of chocolate batter and pour it in the center of your vanilla batter.

Repeat this process, continuing with 1/4 cup scoops of alternating flavors, each flavor of batter dropped into the center of the previous circle of batter. The batter is thin enough that it does not take long at all for the batter to spread out a little bit.

Continue the process until your pans are approx 2/3 full.  (There will be a couple of cups leftover, which we used to make extra cake layers for another time.)

Bake according to package.
