Magic cake recipe was born on the web, and in a short time it has become very popular all over the world. It is called “magic” because from only one mixture you obtain three different consistencies: a hard base, a crunchy surface and the internal part that seems a pudding. Today I propose you the magic cocoa cake, even more appetizing than the classical white version!
The magic cocoa cake is perfect for your coffee break or ever sweet moments of your day.
You can taste it both cold and at a room temperature, as you prefer 😉
If you still have not tried it, this is a good occasion to prepare this delicious cake!
