Introduction: Magic Choco-Flan / Chocolate Cake and Flan

About: Construction grade lumber is cheap and readily available, with a little thought and effort it can be transformed into a piece of art. - Ryan and Viviana.

Easy two layer cake, one part cake other part flan. Both pieces are baked together, they magically separate creating two delicious layers. Great way to super charge a chocolate cake out of a box.

Step 1: Cooking Utensils / Ingridents

Glass baking pan
Bundt pan
Mixer - you could hand mix
Measuring cup
Aluminum foil

Favorite chocolate cake box mix
Whole milk
Condensed milk
Vegetable oil
None stick spray

Step 2: Mixing Ingridents

Forget the instructions on the cake box. All you will need is the cake mix, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 3 eggs and one cup water. Place all in a mixing bowl and blend with the mixer until you achieve a smooth batter.

Time to get out the blender. I like to use a blender because it produces a smoother texture with half the effort of a hand mixer. Place 14 oz condensed milk, 4 eggs and 1 cup on milk in the blender. Blend for about a minute, the batter should be runny, slightly thicker than milk.

Step 3: Layering

Caramel layer
Spray your bundt pan with a none stick cooking spray. Cover the bottom of the bundt pan with the caramel, I use about a quarter of the little jar of caramel in the picture. If you are a caramel lover go nuts!

Pour the cake batter in next, nothing special right on top of the caramel.

Pour the flan mixture on to the cake batter, it will blend into the batter, don't worry. Try to pour it evenly around the bundt pan.

Step 4: Baking

Cover the top of the bundt pan with aluminum foil. Place the bundt pan in the glass baking tray. Fill the baking tray with an inch of hot water. Have the oven preheated to 350 degrees. Bake the cake for an 1hr 5min on the middle rack, or until a tooth pick comes out without goop.

Remove aluminum foil and allow to cool for at least an hour.

Step 5: Serving

After cooling, place a large plate over the top of the bundt pan. Cross you fingers, place pressure on the plate and the bottom of the bunt pan and give it the old flipper'ru! You will end up with results like the picture. Place the cake in the fridge and serve cold.

Step 6: Conclusion

This is an awesome desert, very rich and creamy, way better than a plane old box mix. Let everyone think you slaved in the kitchen creating this beast of a cake. By the way, it keeps great in the fridge. Thanks for showing interest!
