Alright, so we all know cake is magical. Period, the end, thank you for coming to our Ted Talk. But, as it turns out, there really is a subset of cakes called “magic cake”. While there is nothing strictly Hogwarts about these delicacies, there is a fair amount of sorcery going on here. Let us break it down: a magic cake is a French style of cake in which three distinct layers are formed during the baking process. The bottom layer turns into this lovely creamy custard, the middle layer is a sinful cream, and the top layer turns into an actual sponge style cake. These things are beyond delicious, easy to make, and you need to bake one immediately.
This recipe, from over at Kitchn, gives you a ton of expert advice to ensure your magic cake does turn out nothing short of magical. There’s even a handy video attached so you can see how your progress should look along the way. The end result is this amazingly textured cake, with just the right amount of sweetness.
