My grandma used to live with us. When she did I would always helped her and we use to baked this cake called zebra.  When my grandma left to go back to Poland she left me this recipe. Unfortunately the recipe was in polish and in Poland a lot of people don’t use actual measuring cups they use something called szkło which means a water glass. But because no one who reads this understands polish I had to do a lot of changes. After a few phone calls to my grandma I finally got it!:) If you feel like something here is confusing or needs work just let me know.
