Jeff Bezos’s Favorite Zebra Cake
I have never heard of “Zebra Cake” but correctly assumed it might be a marbled vanilla and chocolate cake. This recipe is from the King Arthur Baking Company.
Makes one nine-inch round cake.
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk, whole, 2-percent, or 1-percent
1 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Old Fashioned Caramel Apples
5 crisp apples
1 lb. soft caramels
2 Tbsp. water
1/2 cup chopped peanuts, optional
5 thick wooden skewers or craft sticks
In a double boiler, melt caramels with water, stirring occasionally. Wash and dry apples and skewer them through the stem end. Dip each apple in melted caramel, roll in crushed peanuts if desired, then place in paper muffin cups or on lined cookie sheet. Chill briefly to set.
