Description of the preparation:
Making a Zebra cake is very simple, but it takes time. At the same time, from the simplest and not very expensive products, a wonderful dessert is obtained, which will become a table decoration on weekdays and holidays. The cake is soft, delicate and delicious. The number of cakes depends on the diameter of your mold. I baked in a slow cooker with a bowl 18 cm in diameter. I got 4 cakes. With a larger diameter of the mold, there will be correspondingly fewer cakes.
Prepare the ingredients for making the cake.
Break the eggs into a deep bowl.
Beat the eggs and sugar with a mixer.
Then add sour cream.
As well as condensed milk.
Add mild or lightly melted butter and baking soda, quenched with vinegar or lemon juice.
Stir all ingredients, add flour.
Knead a smooth, lump-free, homogeneous dough of sour cream consistency. It shouldn't be very thick, but it shouldn't rain either.
Divide the dough in two. Add cocoa powder to one, and two tablespoons of flour to the other, so that both doughs are the same consistency.
Put light and dark dough alternately in a baking dish. I baked in a slow cooker.
And so on until the end, until the dough runs out.
Bake the cake in an oven preheated to 175-180 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Check readiness with a dry wooden stick.
Prepare the cream. Put fat sour cream in a bowl, add powdered sugar to taste.
Stir the sour cream and icing sugar gently. If you have sour cream with a fat content of 30-35%, the cream can be whipped with a mixer.
Cut the cooled cake lengthwise into 4 parts. Brush three cakes with cream. Do not grease the top, fourth cake with cream.
Prepare the icing. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa powder, butter and milk.
Stir all ingredients until completely dissolved and turn off. You should make real hot chocolate. This is a network of chocolate icing or ganache.
Cover the cake with chocolate icing. Cut strips out of the paper. Place them on the cake. Sprinkle the exposed areas of the cake with white coconut. Then remove the paper.
Zebra cake with condensed milk is ready.
Let the cake soak for a few hours and serve.
Tea, coffee, milk or compote is an excellent addition and decoration of the festive table.
