If you are looking for a QUICK and EASY CAKE RECIPE with just few simple ingredients, this easy Banana Magic Cake is perfect sweet treat.
However, this easy Banana Cake is not called ‘MAGIC’ for nothing! When you mix together eggs, sugar, flour, butter, milk and mashed banana, pour the batter in the baking dish and place in the oven, the real magic starts!
While baking in the oven this mixture will separate and form three layers. Yes, you understand well. You will make one batter and get a quick, easy and delicious 3-layer cake.
I’ve already shared two magic (custard ) cake recipes here on my blog. This time I wanted to try a new flavor for my magic cake.
After my Skinny Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins and Banana Upside Down Cake I’m a little obsessed with quick and easy banana recipes. Also I shared too many healthy and easy breakfast and dinner recipes, lately. Therefore it was time for delicious DESSERT RECIPE!
Let’s get back to this Easy Banana Magic Cake. With my last magic cake recipes, I noticed that many of you have had some concerns about the preparation. Therefore I’ll make a few notes this time, just to make things clear.
HOW TO MAKE PERFECT MAGIC CAKE:
Let’s start with the eggs. You should separate egg whites carefully, making sure that no part of the yolk fall into the egg whites. Then beat the egg whites until VERY STIFF peaks form. They should be fluffy like a cloud. Egg whites will raise on the surface of the batter when you pour it in the pan and form top layer.
Many of you asked, since the batter is thin, is that correct?! Yes, it is. The batter for magic cake is REALLY THIN! The recipe uses melted butter and a lot of milk and very little flour. That way you will get center, custard like layer. It also allows the egg whites mixture to raise on top of the batter and make the sponge.
Very important thing also is to be careful when folding beaten egg whites into the rest of the mixture. You should do this really gently using a rubber spatula. You don’t want to completely dissolve the egg white foam. It should combine with the rest of the mixture, but it’s OK to have a pea size lumps of the foam, evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
Also I got a lot of questions, about the filling. Looking at the photo of this cake people assume that the cake has filling and there’s no filling mentioned in the recipe. Well, that’s the magic of this cake. There’s no filling or crusts that should make separately. This ONE MIXTURE will provide both, crust and the filling.
Still don’t believe in magic?!
Try and see for yourself!
