Pumpkin Magic Cake

Pumpkin Magic Cake

Pumpkin Magic Cake – the magic is in the batter as it separates during baking, creating 2 beautiful layers. To finish it off, top it with a pudding frosting.

My love of magic cakes has brought me to this moment. Although this is not your traditional magic cake, it’s still a magic cake. But what makes a cake magic is the fact that the batter separates into layers, all on its own. And through my pinterest browsing endeavours I have found this marvel of a cake.

But at the risk of sounding overly dramatic, this cake truly is the mother of all cakes. That’s if you like pumpkin. I, for one, love this time of the year for one reason and one reason alone. And that’s not the weather, my friends.
