Last week I made a Magic Cake and it was really great. Some of you asked me about different flavors that could be added to the batter, so I experimented a little bit and came up with chocolate, red velvet and fruit variation of the magic cake. Actually, I made it with two types of fruit – red berries (strawberry/raspberry/red currants) and blue berries (blueberry/blackberry/black currants). See if you like it!
- 1 magic cake batter
- Choose one of the following flavoring combinations:
- CHOCOLATE: add 1/2 cup cocoa 2 Tbsp strong coffee and 1 Tbsp rum to the batter
- RED VELVET: 1 Tbsp cocoa about 2 teaspoons liquid red food coloring (or 1/4 tsp powdered red food coloring)
- tsp FRUIT: 1/2 grated lemon zest fruit of your choice (enough to cover the bottom of your pan)
For CHOCOLATE and RED VELVET cake: Add flavors of your choice to the magic cake batter, prior to folding in beaten egg whites. Proceed with the recipe.
For FRUIT Cake: Place fruit on the bottom of your cake pan. Lightly dust with a little bit of flour (to prevent the mixture from coloring). Pour the magic cake batter on top. Bake.
