How to Make Magic Cake

by Claire Hesseltine

This cake "magically" forms three layers by itself while baked, hence the name. And no, I'm not a genie.


  • 4 Room temperature eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • ¾ Cups Sugar
  • 8 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • ¾ Cups Flour
  • 2 Cups Milk, lukewarm
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Step 2

    Gather your ingredients.

    Step 3

    Separate the egg yolks from the whites.

    Step 4

    Beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Set aside.

    Step 5

    In another bowl, mix the egg yolks and sugar until creamy and pale.

    Step 6

    Yummy! Although, I wouldn't advise you to eat this. 😄

    Step 7

    Add the vanilla and butter and mix until its all combined.

    Step 8

    It's time for the flour! Mix it in until fully incorporated.

    Step 9

    It's coming along!

    Step 10

    Slowly add the milk and beat until everything is mixed together.

    Step 11

    The batter will be very runny at this point.

    Step 12

    Remember those egg whites? Fold them into the batter a third at a time with a rubber spatula.

    Step 13

    Pour the batter into a greased 8x8 pan.

    Step 14

    Bake it until golden brown on top, or about 40-50 minutes.

    Step 15

    Do you see the layers? Just like magic!

    Step 16

    Finish it off with a dusting of powdered sugar and some berries! Enjoy!
