Strawberry Chocolate Marble Cake (Egg White)

Wishing  all chinese readers 元宵节快乐!

With Zebra Cake recipe that I made long ago, I tweaked a little by changing the vanilla layer to strawberry as I wanted to try out the strawberry powder I won from Cathy Joy’s giveaway.  It was so thoughtful of Cathy to pass the bottle of strawberry powder she bought from Taiwan before CNY.   Thanks Cathy! Cathy has a wonderful blog, I like all of her bakes especially the patterned swiss rolls she featured in her blog.  Pls drop-by her blog to peep all her lovely bakes.

I can’t name this post ‘Zebra’ as both the chocolate and strawberry mixture was jumbled up, and since it has more of a marble effect, I shall rename this as Strawberry Chocolate Marble Cake.   This recipe used mainly egg whites which I cleared quite a lot of my whites stocks in the fridge.

I like the taste of the strawberry powder, and just like Cathy mentioned that it has a little salty taste from the addition of plum powder.   Bebe said the cake smelled and tasted good and it looked more like a carrot cake to her 🙂

This cake texture was soft and crumbly.
