Sharing with you all the recipe of a soft and moist cake with layers of chocolate and vanilla swirled together. This is a simple recipe of cake which can be easily prepared but adding two tablespoon of cocoa powder additionally to the basic vanilla cake batter.

The presence of both the vanilla and chocolate flavor makes this cake amazing. I had used 2 tablespoon of Starbucks hot cocoa for the chocolate portion of cake and I couldn’t express how tasty was the cake. You can also use normal cocoa powder instead.

The specialty of this cake is that we are using the same base cake batter to prepare both vanilla and chocolate flavor and then they are layered alternatively. After both batters are prepared, alternate spoonful of vanilla and chocolate layers are distributed evenly on the cake tin.

Bake the cake for 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated oven. Insert a toothpick in the center of cake and make sure that it comes out with few moist crumbs. Now let us move to the recipe part.
