Awesome cake "zebra"

Awesome cake

By Sunday tea brewed a stunned zebra pie: soft, porous, airy and incredibly beautiful - he conquered the hearts of all my household members. The original name for a homemade pie was obtained because of the similarity of the pattern with the strips of a zebra. The traditional recipe for pie on sour cream passed to me from my grandmother - it's a classic, tested not by one generation. I suggest you also pamper your relatives with wonderful pastries: I am sure that your homeland will appreciate the unmatched appearance of the Zebra cake and its unique taste.



  • 230 grams of flour + 20 grams for white dough;
  • 200 grams of sour cream 10-15% of fat content;
  • 4 fresh chicken eggs;
  • 100 grams of butter;
  • 0.5 teaspoon of salt;
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder;
  • 20 grams of cocoa powder;
  • 250 grams of granulated sugar;
  • 0.5 grams of vanillin;
  • 0.3 teaspoon of salt.

For glaze:

  • 50 grams of milk chocolate;
  • 20 grams of butter;
  • 30 milliliters of milk.

Awesome cake "Zebra". Step-by-step recipe

  1. In the flour add soda, baking powder and a little vanilla (according to the recipe), sift through a sieve into a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, drive in eggs, add the sugar, whisk the mixer at maximum speed (2-3 minutes).
  3. Add sour cream to the egg mixture and melted (but already cooled) butter. Mix the mixer at the lowest speed.
  4. Without stopping whipping, add small portions of flour (on a tablespoon). The ready dough is slightly thicker than the pancake.
  5. Divide the dough into two equal parts: one add 20 grams of cocoa, and the other - 20 grams of flour.
  6. In both bowls, mix the dough with a spoon until smooth.
  7. The form (at me demountable, in diameter 22 centimeters) we cover with parchment paper and we grease with vegetable oil.
  8. Start spreading the dough, alternating it: 3 tablespoons of white, then 3 tablespoons of dough with cocoa (you can spread and 2 spoons, and 4). We continue this process until the dough is over.
  9. We make a wooden skewer: we draw the strips first in one direction, then in the other. In more detail, you can see this process on my video under the recipe.
  10. We send the form with a pie "Zebra" in a preheated oven to 180 degrees, for 40-45 minutes.
  11. We let the prepared pie on sour cream stand for 15 minutes, take off the form, turn it over on a dish, take out the paper.
  12. At this time, prepare the glaze: in a bowl, add pieces of chocolate, pour milk, add butter at room temperature.
  13. We cook on a water bath, with constant stirring, until the chocolate dissolves.
  14. Warm glaze decorate the home pie, leveling it on the vertex and making smudges.
  15. We wait until the icing is cooled, and we serve the homemade cake on the table.

Delicate pie, melting in the mouth, served with a fragrant tea or a cup of coffee with milk. Soft, delicate chocolate pastry based on "Zebra" cake for children I propose to make in separate cupcake molds: it's more convenient to take it in hands and give it to friends.
