Magic Cake

Magic Cake

I found this recipe from a cookbook titled “The No Time To Cook “.   The recipe will stick to your head, that’s how simple it is. The cake is delicious though I find it a bit dry, but  the texture gets better the next day  and  so does the flavor.   It can be eaten plain or serve with mocha sauce which is.. you guessed it, super-duper easy to make.


So, what are you waiting for? Read the recipe already and make it today.


pour batter in the prepared pan after mixing


Bake for 40 minutes.   Invert on a wire rack immediately


Serve with mocha sauce. Enjoy! 🙂

    Hello! I ordinarily make my cakes from the box ‘coz it’s easy but this doesn’t seem complicated like what most homemade cake recipes I’ve seen, I might give it a try. Good day
