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

One batter which magically divides into three layers, three different textures: a flan base, crème center, and génoise (sponge) top!
The recipe was originated in France and talked about in Japan in 2015.

However, if you expect smooth and creamy flan, you will get disappointed with the texture… it is pretty dense and chewy. Thus, I prefer the chocolate flavor. The flan base is just like chocolate fudge and pretty addictive ;)
