Desserts Magazine – Zebra Cake Revisited

Have you heard about this wonderful publication called Desserts Magazine? If not, here’s your chance to get yourself comfortable and  start flipping through the pages filled with recipes for mouthwatering desserts, step by step instructions, baking tips, food photography, and many more. There is always something for everybody! I literally can’t take my eyes off the screen every time I click to read the magazine’s issues.

I was a lucky contributor to Dessert Magazine’s latest issue (#4) which featured my Zebra Cake in its A Journey  Around the World Through Cakes column along with many fabulous cakes from different parts of the world, including the US, Mexico, Australia, Indonesia, Austria, and many other countries. I am thrilled and honored to have been a part of this issue  and would like to thank the Desserts Magazine team for the opportunity from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!

  37. Your Zebra Cake is very interesting as we have had a similiar cake in Dubrovnik “River Wave Cake”. There is a rich custard topping, then a thin wonderful chocolate layer. It is served chilled and amazing. Our daughter’s husband, Sejo is from the former Yugoslavia and when they visited there a couple of years ago a relative served them her Mityre Cake, again very similiar but long and cherboard of chocolate and vanilla.

    Farida: River Wave Cake sounds interesting. I have never tried or even seen it but from your description it sounds like something i would love to try to bake. I did a search online for the recipe but alas did not find any:(

  38. River Wave Cake & Mitre Cake are regional family recipes. I’ll have my son-in-law translate his aunt’s recipe from Begrad. She just passed away a few weeks.

    Do you read Cyrillic?

    There is another cake that is also a favourite of ours. It has baked merigue and caramel inside the cake-amazing! Meera (Sejo’s kum’s mum makes it).

    So many specialities these woman make. They each have a speciality and bring it to weddings or church events.

    FARIDA: I would love to receive the River Wave recipe. Yes, I do real Cyrillic as I speak Russian. Not sure if I can understand any other Cyrillic based language other than Russian though (except maybe Ukranian and Belarussian). Thank you so much in advance!

  39. Congratulations on your column! I will try making this cake tomorrow
