Magic Cake


This Magic Cake is truly magic. With just a few simple ingredients it makes a magically delicious 3 layer cake, that will definitely disappear.

The trick to this magic … don’t fold in the egg whites completely, you want to make sure you still have some of the white bits in it, and you too will get those magical 3 layers.
