Made this cake for a special celebration last week, was down with cold n fever n didnt make anuthing elaborate. Then thought why not make a cake in MW. Went through lots of recipes n didnt settle down for anything. Then suddenly an idea stuck me,. why not make Zebra Cake n MW. Took a recipe for cake from one of my cookbook made a few alterations n made this cake, Voila! In 10minutes I made the cake n if was sooo soft n delicious. I was very happy coz I not got the best cake but I was also able to give surprise even though I was sick.Sending them to Indrani's Spotlight- Baking without oven

You need:

All Purpose flour                    1cup
Powdered Sugar                    1cup
Large Eggs                             4nos
Cocoa  powder                      2tbsp
Baking powder                       3/4tsp
Baking soda                            a pinch
Oil                                          3/4cup
Vanilla Essence                       1tsp
Salt                                         1/8tsp


Seive the flour, baking powder, baking soda n salt together.
Beat the sugar and eggs very well together. Add the essence.
Add oil gradually beating mixture lightly.
Fold in flour a little at a time, with a wooden spoon, till all the flour is used.
Divide the batter in two parts, in one part add the cocoa powder n mix together.
Take a MW safe medium sized round baking dish n grease them with butter n flour.
Pour a laddle full of white batter in the centre, the batter will spread itself. then pour a laddle ful of choclate batter in the centre, continue the procedure alternating the white n chocolate batters,
Do not spread the battter with the spoon or disturb them. Just keep adding the batter in the centre n you will see that they will form into a beautiful pattern with alternating colours.
Keep them in the MW oven n MW high for 5 minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes in the MW.
Let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Remove to a serving platter. Slice them n Serve.
