BM #111 Week 3 Day 3 - 

This is a simple cake with random pattern of vanilla and chocolate batters.
I made it for my older one's 18th birthday a few months back as she wanted a very small celebration at home. 
Feel free to pour the two batters in any pattern.

Ingredients - 

Yogurt 1 cup
Sugar, fine 3/4 cup
Oil 1/4 cup (I used Olive Oil)
Baking Powder 1 tsp 
Baking Soda 1/2 tsp 
Maida / All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour 1/2 cup
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
Milk 1/4 cup
Cocoa Powder 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, whisk yogurt, oil, fine sugar. After the sugar is well blended, add in the baking soda and baking powder. Mix gently and set aside for 10 minutes.

In another mixing bowl, sieve the flours and set aside.

Prepare a baking tin by spraying oil and/or lining with a parchment paper. I used a bundt pan so didn't use parchment paper.

In the yogurt mixture, add the flour gradually and mix to get a smooth batter. Take care not to over mix.

I had to add about 2-3 Tbsp of milk to get a flowing consistency.

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.

Divide the batter into two portions.

In one of the portions, add cocoa powder and blend it in adding 2-3 Tbsp of milk as needed.

In the prepared bundt pan, pour 2 tablespoons of the Vanilla batter in the center and 2 Tbsp of cocoa batter, continue this pattern till a typical dark and light pattern alternates.

Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.

Remove and allow it to cool before slicing it as needed.
