I tried a magic cake at a friends house the other week and loved it. I was impressed that it´s made with only 1 batter and yet it comes out from the oven with 3 layers. When I explained the cake to my husband, he asked if I could try it with saffron instead of the traditionally vanilla taste. So, I did, and it was a hit, the whole family loved it.
