Impossible Chocolate Flan Cake
Impossible Chocolate Flan Cake is easy to make and sure to wow the crowd. A luscious combination of caramel, chocolate cake and (leche) flan, it’s the ultimate baked treat!
Hello, once again! I am Sanna, and I am here to share another fantastic recipe with you
If you love a moist chocolate cake and a creamy flan, you are in luck. I am going to show you how to make a stunning Impossible flan cake that combines these two dessert favorites in one delectable treat!
What is Magic Chocoflan
The cake is made up of three components and baked in a bundt pan. The layering starts with the dulce de leche, followed by the chocolate batter and, finally, the flan. As it bakes, the cake rises to the top, and the custard sinks to the bottom
Once the cake is released from the pan and inverted the cake on the serving platter, you’ll find that the chocolate and flan layer have magically switched places! You get a gorgeous cake with a luscious caramel glaze sitting on top.
How to Make Impossible Chocolate Flan Cake
Have you always wanted to try Impossible Cake, but never had the nerve? This easy Chocoflan recipe is a winner!
The pan goes into the oven layered with caramel, then chocolate cake, then flan. Then later comes out of the oven with the flan and chocolate layers reversed. It goes into the oven one way and comes out another.
Contrary to appearances, it is surprisingly fun and easy to make. However, there are specific steps you must attend to, in order to achieve the desired magic, but there is nothing too hard about that.
This recipe requires a minimum 12-cup capacity pan. The cake also came out of the pan much better when I buttered it, instead of spraying with baking spray.
The moist cake, silky flan, and creamy caramel are not your every day cake, but you will want it to be.
Making the Chocolate Cake Layer
- To prevent lumps in the batter, make sure that the milk and eggs are at room temperature.
- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer until thick and fluffy.
- Add the egg and continue to beat.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and add half of the mixture into the mixing bowl.
- Add half of the milk. Beat the mixture until the dry ingredients are just moistened.
- Add the remaining half of the dry mixture and the milk and beat just until the ingredients are incorporated. Do not overmix as it will result in a dense cake.
Making the Flan Layer
- In a mixing bowl, combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir until well incorporated.
- Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the mixture into a spouted container.
