Vanilla Chocolate checkerboard cake

In this video I will be showing you how to assemble a vanilla and chocolate checkerboard cake. In a different video I showed how to assemble a three layer checkerboard cake with 3 different colours.

The cakes I baked are 8 inch round and here is the recipe for one cake which I used. I decided to make each cake mixture individually but you can just multiply the recipe by the number of layers you wish to bake and divide into different bowl two colour them and then put in your cake tins to bake.

If you do not have the right amount of cake tins just bake in batches

You will need the following circle cutters

about 4 1/4 inch round and one that is about 2 1/4 inches round

Ingredients (for ONE Vanilla 8 inch cake)

  • 100 grams self raising flour
  • 100 grams caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 80 ml plain yoghurt
  • 50 ml vegetable oil

Method

  • Preheat oven to 175 Celsius
  • Mix all your ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth. Put in your prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes. Test with a toothpick, if it comes out clean it is ready.
  • When they are ready put the cakes on a cooling rack to cool completely before assembling.
  • When your cakes are cooled cut out two circles from each, one with the big circle and one with the small one and then you will end up with three circles from each.
