Chocolate Flan Cake

• Time 45 minutes
• Serves 8


• Ingredients for cake:
Devil's Food cake mix (Duncan Hines preferred)
1 can Coke

• Ingredients for flan
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
1/2 C. fresh milk
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 eggs

•You also need:

1 bottle of Cajeta (Mexican caramel or a regular caramel sauce)
Pam to spray Bundt pan

How to make it

• Heat oven to 350-degrees
• Follow instructions 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 (see details for my flan recipe on this blog)
• Spray the Bundt can with Pam and cover the bottom with caramel
• Pour cake mix into Bundt pan
• Pour the flan mix gently down one side of the pan. The flan will go to 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 need only a couple of inches of water.
• Put it all in the oven and it will cook for at least 45 minutes and as much as an hour.
• Check the cake with a toothpick. The cake will stay more moist than most cakes you've ever made and you will see it separate a bit from the pan when it's done.
• Let it cool and refrigerate for several hours
• Take it out 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.
• You may drizzle some chocolate syrup on top and sprinkle nuts like walnuts/ pecans or sliced almonds if desired.
• If you want the flan creamier, you can use 5 eggs instead of three and you can add a small package of Philadelphia cream cheese.
