What’s magical about magic custard cake? The cake’s three layers, which are made from one batter. I just put the batter in the oven and then, when I take it out, it has three distinct layers. The top of magic custard cake is a layer of fluffy cake. The bottom is a layer of starch which eats like kueh. What’s in the middle? Smooth, milky custard. Want to have your cake, and eat kueh and custard too? Go bake a magic custard cake.
