Roberta's Story

The cake will stay moister than most cakes you’ve ever made and you will see it separate a bit from the pan when it is done. Make sure the cake is done on the inside of the bundt pan. Bundt pan should then lift off to reveal a layer of flan, topped with caramel sitting atop a very
rich, moist chocolate cake.

Although very tempting to do this, DO NOT try to serve this before chilled completely. It falls apart, doesn't set up, makes a big mess, ect. I know this by making that mistake!

I make my cake the day before and chill overnight. When taking it somewhere I leave it in the bundt pan until we are at the place then flip it over right before serving.

I brought this to an office gathering and it was a big hit! I've never had such a big response to a recipe.

    I forgot to add that Cajeta is a Mexican caramel made with goat's milk. It's really tasty but you can use any kind of caramel sauce. You would use 12oz of caramel sauce.

    I was wondering....could this cake be set out after chilled for any lenght of time? It sounds so good and I was wanting to take it to a gathering where it would be out for a few hours before being served..or does it need constant refrigeration ? Thanks,

    Actually you set it out about 2 hours before serving. Guess it would depend on how hot it is. I live in TX so I don't leave it out long in 100 degree temps. I usually transport it in the bundt pan and put it in something like a cooler and place ice packs around it. Then about 2 hours before I serve it I place it on a platter and turn it over and take the bundt pan off. The only problem with that is that people will come along and dip their fingers in the caramel!
