Chocolate Magic Cake

Chocolate Magic Cake

Chocolate Magic Cake – one simple thin batter, bake it and voila! You end up with a 3 layer chocolate cake, magic cake.

Well I finally did it! I finally made the chocolate version of this delightful magic cake. The original version was very popular and a lot of people were asking about different flavors, so I decided to give it a go and see how it turns out. Well I knew it couldn’t be bad, because I loved the original version so chocolate magic cake could only make it better.

I also found out that the origin of this cake is from Romania, and the actual name of the cake is intelligent cake because of how it separates into 3 layers. I made a couple changes to my original recipe, such as add a bit of vinegar to the egg whites and some vanilla extract for additional flavor. The rest of the recipe is exactly the same with the exception of the addition of some cocoa powder.
