Picture of Chocolate Magic Cake

In this instructable I will show you how to make chocolate magic cake. This chocolate magic cake recipe is easy to make using only 6 ingredients. Why is it called a magic cake? Because when it bakes you will wind up with distinct cake layers, or different types of cake just from one batter. It tastes like a cross between chocolate cake, chocolate custard, and chocolate flan. If I can do it you can do it, let's get baking!

Don't forget to follow me and check out my other instructables! :)

If you have any questions or comments leave them down below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

So awesome! Glad you made it. Oh good, sometimes I wonder if the the metric conversions I do are correct. haha :)
My wife doesn't like the consistency, because it reminds her of pudding skin, which she hated as child...

I like it though, so there's more for me then ;)

Yeah the consistency can be a bid weird, especially when you hear cake, and you think it will taste like normal cake, and then it doesn't. haha. Glad you like it!

Looks yummy, can you please tell an alternative for eggs ?
In some other recipes I read many moons ago it was said that if you were short an egg in a two-egg recipe, you could substitute a fair-sized dollop of mayonnaise for the missing egg. However, you asked for substitutes for "eggs," which is a whole different matter. If allergies, dietary restrictions or preferences (veganism, religious), or cost prohibit the use of eggs, you may have to really experiment and hopefully come up with something workable or else just forego recipes such as this. Good luck!
Agreed. Unfortunately I think part of the magic of this cake and the way the chemistry works with the layers, is because of the eggs. Similar to a chocoflan cake.
Thanks. Unfortunately there is not alternative for eggs for this particular recipe. Sorry!

So bake for 50 or 60 minutes at ??? f somewhere at the top you say pre heat
the oven at 320 f so is that the temperature to cook it? You never said when
you got to putting in in the pan!
Hi GregS278, yes at 320 f. Generally when a recipe says to preheat the oven to a certain temp, that is the same temp you bake the food at. :)
Yes, you bake it at 320f. The pre-heat is so when you're done mixing everything you don't need to wait for the oven to heat up.

Wondering if you could use Monkfruit sugar in place of regular granulated sugar?
I am not sure, I don't have much experience with Monkfruit. So I don't know if it will have the same effect. Give it a try and let me know how it goes! :)
