This recipe can be made into either a marble cake or zebra cake, depending on what you’re in the mood for. However you make it, this cake is moist and delicious, with the almond extract adding a little extra something special. Serve plain or top with your favorite chocolate icing.

Ingredients

Cake

  • 7 eggs, separated

  • 1 and 1/2 cups sugar

  • pinch of salt

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 3/4 cup water

Chocolate Filling

  • 1/4 cup boiling water

Directions

Prepare the Batter

1.

Beat egg whites until stuff. Add sugar and beat until peaks form.

Chocolate filling: Combine all ingredients and mix with half of batter.

For Zebra Effect

Confused about what to do with the egg yolks after we’ve beaten the white, doesn’t mention the yolks…

In step 2 when it says ‘gradually add the remaining ingredients’ you would add the egg yolks then.
