Chocolate Magic Custard Cake
Oh boy… This Chocolate Magic Custard Cake like the name it says is truly a work of the mystical. One simple batter that bakes up creating 3 distinctive layers. Each layer has a very different flavor and texture.
Imagine a foamy top with a smooth-like flan texture all in one bite. It’s kind of like my Chocoflan cake but way easier to make.
I’ve always said, baking requires part magic and part science. Next time I’ll be wearing a wizard hat with a lab coat in the kitchen. The process is so cool and I wish I could understand what happens in the oven, meanwhile, I’ll just enjoy eating it.
You can make this Chocolate Magic Custard Cake in a round or square shape. It’s pretty to serve them in slices or like I did, rectangular bars. Yesterday I had a dinner party and cut them into little squares so they became a one-bite treat.
The top can be covered with powdered sugar or even chocolate syrup. If you prefer a vanilla taste simply omit the chocolate and increase the vanilla extract. This recipe is totally customizable. Next time I’ll definitely make it into a 8″ cake shape.
October is the month of the Jewish Holidays and this year I want to come up with tons of recipes that will be original, crowd friendly, and kind of exotic.
Yesterday to break the Yom Kippur fast my family kept asking me what this was. I just said: “a chocolate thingie, just eat it” and they loved it.
