Magic Custard Cake

You'll love this easy vanilla cake recipe. If you've never made Magic Custard Cake before, now is the time to give it a try. This magical cake is the easiest layer cake you will ever bake. You won't have to worry about creating the layers yourself. After the cake is baked, it will have a custard layer and a vanilla cake layer. This yummy cake is a perfect coffee time treat. You could serve it at a brunch party, or when you simply want to make a fun and easy dessert for your family.


The best part about this Magic Custard Cake, and other magic cakes in general, is that you don't really need to understand why the batter separates into three layers. It just does! But if you're as curious about your food as we are here at TheBestDessertRecipes, then you've come to the right magic cake recipe.

The liquids in a magic cake are what help the cake separate into the three layers: the dense, gelatin-like bottom, the creamy custard middle, and the fluffy cake top. The egg yolks and milk sink to the bottom while the lighter egg whites rise to the top. Like for all baked goods, heat from the oven is important to getting the recipe right. Magic cakes are cooked at a lower temperature than most other cakes. This allows the layers to separate before the heat causes them to solidify. When you cut into the cake, you should see three well-defined layers, each with its own color and taste.
