Chocolate Flan Cake Recipe: Can life possibly be any better
Do you want to be known as the "Gourmet Cook of the Neighborhood"? Or to hear the church folk sing your praises on "potluck night"?
Here's an exceptionally simple desert that will give you the reputation of being best cook in your family
Ingredients for cake
- Devil's Food cake mix (Duncan Hines preferred)
- 1 can coke
Ingredients for flan
- 1 can evaporated milk (regular, not light)
- 1 can condensed milk
- 3 eggs
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
You also need:
- 1 bottle of Cajeta (Mexican caramel or a regular caramel sauce)
- Pam to spray bundt pan
Heat over to 350 degrees
Follow instruction to make cake but use the can of coke instead of water
Set cake mix aside and make the flan
Put the flan ingredients in a blender and mix well
Spray the bundt pan with Pam and then cover the bottom with caramel
Pour cake mix into bundt pan
Pour he flan mix gently down one side of the pan. The flan will go the bottom and the cake mix will raise up a bit as the flan mixture fills the bottom of the pan.
Set the bundt pan in a larger pan or tray with water. You are creating a double boiler but you only need a couple of inches of water.
Put it all in the over and it will cook for at least 45 minutes and as much as an hour, depending upon your stove.
Check the cake doneness with a toothpick. The cake will stay more moist than most cakes you have made and you will see it separate a bit from the pan when it is done.
Let is cool in the pan and refrigerate for several hours.
Take it our two hours before you plan to serve. Turn the bundt pan over and let it sit while warming to room temperature.
The bundt pan should then lift off to reveal a layer of flan, topped with caramel sitting atop a very moist chocolate cake. If you want the flan more creamy you can use 5 eggs instead of three and add a small package of Philadelphia cream cheese.
