Magic pie and magic bars are not quite the same. The custard pie only has two layers whereas the magic cake bars have three layers. Both recipes work in a similar fashion, where the dessert magically forms layers during the baking. The pie isn’t as cool looking, but it’s super super easy to make.
It takes less than five minute to assemble the batter and it’s ready to go in the oven.
I love the silky custard.
I personally prefer the magic cake bars because I really love that third cake layer and I love how the triple layers look. This doesn’t look nearly as cool, but it is tasty and something you can make when pinched for time.

Smaller pie or ramekins will need less time depending on size.
