Magic cake

 
It seems like it’s finally springtime in Ann Arbor. The birds are out, people are jogging all over the place, and the weather is finally keeping itself above 20°. So, along with the news of warm weather, I bring you this springtime Magic Cake! What is it, you ask? Well, it’s a cake made of one batter that magically settles into three layers upon baking! The top layer is a spongey angel food-like cake, the middle layer is a soft, velvety pudding, and the bottom layer is a firm custard. Even though it’s very light, it’s also super decadent! So pretty much the perfect spring or summer dessert.
