This easy latin Chocoflan cake is moist and delicious. A combination of flan and chocolate cake with a drizzle of caramel sauce. The perfect dessert to serve for any occasion. I really love this hybrid idea and believe it or not is so easy to make and will definitely wow your guests.
I grew up eating flan. My mom used to make it when guests came over. It’s creamy, sweet and very soft. I don’t know anybody who wouldn’t even steal a spoonful. Flan is so versatile and it’s easy to customize it. For instance, around the Holidays I make it with Egg Nog. Other times I’ve made it with Dulce de Leche.
Now chocolate cake does not need any type of introduction. In Spanish we say “It’s a shot to the floor” meaning it’s a sure hit. Who doesn’t love a good piece of chocolate cake? If you don’t, substitute with Vanilla, Spice, Carrot or whatever your heart desires.
The Chocoflan Cake works because both flavors and textures compliment each other beautifully. The flan gives the moisture and softness to the cake while the Chocolate gives it structure and lot’s of flavor. The Dulce de Leche on top just takes it to the next level. To me, it’s a showstopper and something different and exotic.
Some people call this Chocoflan Cake the Impossible Cake since something strange happens to the cooking process: the layers switch over during baking.
We start out first with the caramel, we add the chocolate cake and finally we finish off with the flan. When the cake is in the oven, the chocolate cake rises over the flan and ends up at the bottom. Kinda cool right?
Making Chocoflan Cake is SUPER EASY and doesn’t require a huge list of ingredients. I made a video tutorial for you below in case you like to see the process. It’s my first cooking video so be easy on me 🙂 . I promise to get better and produce more cooking videos in the future.
