From Minna: Tiikerikakku

Finnish Tiger Cake

200 g (8 oz) margarine
2 dl (8 oz) sugar
3 eggs
3 dl (12 oz) flour
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2 tsp baking powder
3 tblsp milk
2-3 tblsp cocoa

Carefully butter and flour a cake tin. Beat fat and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each one. Add the baking powder and vanilla sugar to the flour and stir in slowly. Put one-third of the mixture in another bowl and add 2-3 tblsp of sifted cocoa and 3 tblsp of milk.

Put the mixture into the prepared cake tin in layers, beginning and ending with the plain mixture. Bake at 175 °C for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
