Chocolate Flan

Ingredients for Chocolate Cake

  • 1/2 cup cajeta (caramel topping)
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • Water (amount per cake mix directions)
  • Vegetable oil (amount per cake mix direction)
  • Eggs (amount per cake mix direction)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions for Chocolate Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a shatter-resistant plastic bowl, combine chocolate cake mix, incorporating water, vegetable oil and eggs according to package directions. Mix for 2 minutes on slow, then bring the speed up to medium high for 2 more minutes.
  3. Pour cajeta into the bottom of a heat-resistant and non-stick, 12-cup silicone bundt pan.
  4. Slowly pour cake batter over cajeta.
  5. Fill a tea kettle with water and place over a high flame. While waiting for water to boil, make flan blend.

Ingredients for Flan

  • 4 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1- 12 oz. can of evaporated milk
  • 1 – 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp. almond extract
  • 4 large eggs

Directions for Flan

  1. In a blender add cream cheese, evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, and eggs. Blend on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Once flan mixture is blended, slowly pour in a circle over cake batter, a little bit at a time. Then sprinkle chocolate chips over the top.
  3. Next take a piece of aluminum foil (enough to cover top of bundt pan) and coat with non-stick baking spray. Loosely place sprayed aluminum foil on top of bundt pan and cover. Then place covered bundt pan in a large baking dish and fill halfway with super hot water from teakettle.
  4. Place the covered silicone bundt pan in hot bath in oven on middle rack and let bake for 1 hour. Once cake is baked, remove from hot bath and remove aluminum foil. Let cool in the pan for 2 hours, next run a butter knife along the edge of pan to pull cake away from silicone pan, then flip it over onto the plate of a plastic cake carrier to retain freshness and/or transport to fun, social gatherings!
  5. Put it in the fridge for another 6 hours, chill and enjoy!
