I feel some background on this cake is needed.
I was requested to make this cake for a friend bachelorette, party which meant the cake was in the shape of a dun, dun, dun… a penis. Yes, you heard correct, this amazingly spongy and moist cake looks like a penis. So take the kiddies out of the room while baking this masterpiece for your next gathering and try to keep the laughs to a minimum.
The original recipe used a bunt pan, but you could use a cake pan as well and turn it into a birthday cake. I’m all about reinventing the use of recipes and I see this one a multifunctional cake batter. So without further delay, I bring to you my reinvention of the Zebra Bundt Cake:
- 3 cups of Pamela’s baking flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 ½ cups sugar
- Hersey’s Dark Coco powder sweetened
- 6 tablespoons of water
- 1 ½ cups butter melted
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 5 large eggs
- ¾ cup of skim milk
The Creation of a Zebra Bundt cake:
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine ½ cup of sugar, cocoa powder and water together until smooth, set aside.
- Using a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the melted butter and sugar on medium until the mixed is blended (about a minute). Add vanilla, beat until combined. Add in the eggs one at a time. Once all the eggs have been added, beat until the batter is light and fluffy.
- Turn the mixer speed down to low and add the 1/3 of flour mixture, alternating with the milk. Repeat until the flour mixture and milk are combined.
- Begin layering in the batter using an ice cream scoop; place two scoops of the vanilla mixture in the bottom of the pan and then add one chocolate scoop. Continue alternating until the cake is combining in the pan.
- Bake the cake for 50-60 minutes. Let the cake cool before inverting it.
- 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- Place chocolate and cream in a pan over low heat and stir until combined. Let cool for 10 minutes before using.
Pour the glaze over the cake and serve to all your friends and family for whatever the occasion, even if the occasion is naughty. I hope you have as much luck as I did with this recipe and it finds a place in you forever cookbook.
