Chocolate Flan Cake

Roberta Broussard Recipe

By Roberta Broussard robann

Prep Time:
Cook Time:

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 absolutely love this cake, although I don't make it as often as I would like (weekly, lol). Here is a suggestion for all you coconut lovers out there. Instead of using evaporated milk, substitute coconut milk (in the can, not in refrigerated section). I dare you not to eat more than one piece.

Thank you Roberta! I'll let you know. And I'll be keeping my fingers crossed, LOL! Hey, if it doesn't work out it's no big deal, I'll just make another one the correct a later date. I just want to eat this NOW! It looks scrumptious.

Yes you can use Pepsi instead of Coke. I've never made it in a regular pan so I don't know the answer to the pan. but I would think it would work just adjusting the cake and flan. I would think a box flan mix would work too. Let me know if it turns out.
