What’s magic about this cake? Magic custard cake looks like it’s been carefully layered with three different components: a firm base followed by a creamy custard layer and, topped with a fluffy sponge cake. But it’s not! Only combine all the ingredients in one bowl, pour the batter in a baking tray and bake. And the magic happens in the oven!
Magic custard cake it is bake at low temperature (160-180ºC / 320-356 º F)). After baking, it is recommended to allow the cake completely cool, even keep it in the refrigerator over night. The layers will separate perfectly: the top layer is a sponge, the middle is custard and the bottom is almost like fudge.
