The most thing I love about this cake  is how it looks. It looks complicated but it’s not . One of the most popular recipes on Wara’ 3anab, I really recommend you to try this.  Your friends and family will love it 🙂

Recipe :

4 eggs room temperature

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of milk ( room temperature)

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 cup of vegetable oil

2 cups of flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 180c

In a large bowl add 1 cup of sugar and add the 4 eggs and mix with an electric whisk until its mixed .  Slowly add in the milk and the vanilla . Then add in the vegetable oil and mix .

In a separate bowl add the flour , baking powder , then slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet , once its mixed set aside do not over mix

Separate the mixtures evenly into two bowls and add to one of them 2-3 tablespoons of cocoa powder, mix

Butter the pan , add a parchment paper on the bottom of your 8 inch cake pan , I used a springform pan
Add 3 tablespoons of the vanilla batter into the middle of the baking pan. Then add 3 tablespoons of chocolate batter and pour it in the center on top of the vanilla batter. Add another 3 tablespoons of vanilla and so on . Repeat with all of the batter until you are done with  the batter.
Do not tilt your pan , it will spread just by adding your batter on top of each other .

Hold the cake pan about 3 inches above the counter and let it drop flat on the counter. Do it once or twice; that should force the air bubbles up to the surface of the batter.

You can decorate the top part of the cake by using a long wooden stick or a toothpick
Just run lines from the middle to the end.

Bake for 40 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and comes out clean. Once the cake is ready , run a knife around the edges. Remove from the pan after 10 minutes
and let it cool completely before slicing it .
