Zebra Sponge Cake
Mix softened butter with 3/4 cup of sugar.
In a separate bowl, whisk eggs together with 1 cup of sugar.
Add butter to whisked eggs.
To sour cream, add baking powder and baking soda. Add mixture to the cake batter.
Add flour to the batter. Split batter into two separate bowls and add cacao powder to one of them. Whisk together to combine well.
Spray a 7-inch cake pan with cooking spray. Taking turns, place two tablespoons of each batter color on top of each other, until you run out of batter. This will create the zebra stripe effect.
Bake at 350 °F for 40 minutes. Use a toothpick to check if the cake is baked. If baked, the toothpick should come out clean. Once the cake cools, cut the cake into 2-3 layers.
Bring whipping cream to a boil, pour it over chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Let the ganache cool a little.
Apply the ganache all over the top of the cake. Decorate as you wish.
