Checkerboard Cake Without Special Pan

Tired of making basic cake designs? And you want to challenge yourself? It would help if you tried this checkerboard cake without a special pan. Buying a special pan for this is unnecessary; it will just take up space and waste money.


01 1 cup of unsalted butter set at room temperature

02 2 cups of all-purpose flour

03 1 3/4 cups of sugar

04 5 pcs of eggs placed at room temperature

05 4 tbsp of sweetened cocoa powder

To preheat, set your oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, grease two cake pans. After that, line with parchment paper and dust them with flour.


Afterward, in a bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking powder. Then, add the cocoa powder (sweetened and unsweetened) into the flour and set it aside.


After that, cream your butter and sugar using an electric mixer until it becomes light and fluffy. Then, scrape the bowl’s sides using a rubber spatula every few minutes.


Next, add in the eggs one piece at a time, ensuring that each egg incorporates properly before adding another one.
