Chocolate Magic Cake (3-Layer Cake from 1 Batter) - Video Recipe

One batter which magically divides into three layers, three different textures: a fudge base, gâteau au chocolat center, and sponge top!

Of course you can arrange the flavor in the way you want. Matcha green tea may be beautiful =)

The recipe was originated in France and talked about in Japan this year 2015 ;)

Chocolate Magic Cake (3-Layer Cake from 1 Batter)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1.5hrs
Number of servings: 15cm (6inch) square cake pan

2 eggs
60g (2.1oz.) granulated sugar
1 tbsp. water
60g (2.1oz.) butter
40g (1.4oz.) cake flour
20g (0.7oz.) cocoa powder
a pinch of salt
180ml milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

*to make plain magic cake you can eliminate cocoa powder and use 60g (2.1oz.) cake flour

2. Line the cake pan with parchment paper.
3. Melt the butter in a microwave at 600W for 30 seconds.

7. Add butter little by little and mix well.
8. Sift in flour and cocoa powder, add salt, and mix well.
9. Add milk 1/2 at a time, then add vanilla extract and mix well.
10. In a different bowl, whip egg whites and the rest of the granulated sugar (30g) with an electric mixer until firm peaks form.
11. Mix 9 and 10 together for 10 times with a whisk. DO NOT OVER-MIX. Pour the batter into the pan and even out the surface.
12. Bake at 160C (320F) for about 45~50 minutes.
13. Leave to cool completely, then cool in the fridge for 2 hours.

You can dust with powdered sugar and garnish with some fruits if you like :)
