Zebra Cake
This is a real showstopper! Everyone will ask how you achieved those stripes. The recipe originally needed separated eggs, I like quick and easy, so I found a different one that doesn't need the separating.
4 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Rice Dream or parve coffee whitener, at room temperature
1 cup oil (canola preferred)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder

I use the same technique to make a zebra cheese cake for Shavuos.

Can I use juice instead of coffee whitener or it won't have the same affect? Also what size pan?

I made this for after the Yom Kippor fast for my daughters birthday and it was a big hit. It tasted delicious and looked beautiful. thank you so much for the recipe. p.s. it took no time to make it was real easy. I put it in my files of recipes to make again.

You can probably use orange juice instead of coffee whitener, or perhaps half water/half juice. I've used juice in a white cake, and it gives a nice flavor. It's only because there's a chocolate batter, that I would hesitate. But if you don't have coffee whitener, nor Rice Dream/ Soy Dream, try the juice. I think I used a 9" round pan. If you only have a 8" pan, and there is left over batter, just make cupcakes!

I made this for a Chol HaMoed dessert and my guests were really amazed. It was quick and fun to make (with my grandkids). Thanks so much for the tutorial as well - that gave me the "umph" to make it! Chag Sameach!

You're so welcome! I'm glad you all enjoyed it...

Cake was so easy and looks amazing, but has anyone done a glaze for this cake? The top looks kind of cool, but the sides are a little pasty and it doesn't have the best presentation. Since I didn't taste it yet, I don't know if a glaze will be overkill.

If the sides are pasty, maybe adjust the baking time, and bake it a little longer. I would not place any glaze on top, because that would hide the bull's eye design (unless it's a clear glaze). Also, personally, I think it's sweet enough without a glaze. (though maybe a bittersweet chocolate glaze, that is not too sweet, would be good together.
