I’m taking requests! Next up: a twist on my dad’s childhood favorite. When he grew up in Argentina, he would eat papas fritas (french fries) and flan every day (Let’s just say he wasn’t the thinnest boy in his class). I decided to “American-ize” the traditional flan recipe by adding a layer of unbelievably moist and tasty chocolate cake. I was happy just eating the bottom cake layer!! I think this recipe is pretty cool because the chocolate cake and the flan layers flip during the baking process… some chemistry for you (the different densities of the layers cause the switch)! Anyways, this recipe is a delicious interpretation of a classic, old-fashioned dessert! It’s even better with caramel sauce or San Ignacio Dulce de Leche from Argentina, my favorite! Enjoy!!!

Looks interesting. I don’t really like flan, but this picture makes me want to give this recipe a try!
Usually I don’t either, but this combination is unbelievable!!
Gorgeous! That’s beautifully done and what a great enhancement to the Latin classic!
Thank you so much!!
This recipe is a keeper. The cake layer was so delish and when you add the flan, it becomes a real WOW dessert! Thanks for sharing this one
Thanks!! You should try making it!
Yes, a strawberry tart they can be cllaed, however flan will alway have some sort of pastry cream. Not all tarts have pastry cream. I went to pastry school that followed the French way of making all pastries and we always cllaed them flans. Flans / tarts = very yummy
I found this recipe and decdied to give it a try They are still drying right now, but I sneaked a taste and the peel is still so bitter. I hope the sugar will mask it! Or I just had poor oranges.
1) Now that your finished? Is there anithyng you would change about an Eli book? Put in, take out. Give a character more page time?2) If you were to or have written a dragon story. What kind of dragon would it be? Friendly, neutral, hostile. Color? Scaled or unscaled? Fire breather or somthing else?3) I asked you about Warcraft once but I’m curious what other universe you’d like to write in?
Thank you for visiting my blog. This recipe looks fabulous.
This looks delicious! I’m not the biggest fan of flan, but the addition of chocolate cake might be exactly what I’m looking for…
It’s the PERFECT combination! Reese’s has met its match!
I just love Flan! And with chocolate cake?! Even better–I will have to try this really really soon : )
It’s fantastic!! Tell me how it turns out!
I’ve never made flan, but this looks great! Will have to try it!
The chocolate cake is SO great with it! It’s the perfect dessert to make!
That looks awesome! I’ll have to try that next time we have company or a potluck. We live in S. Florida, and that looks like a great twist on a local classic!
Ooh I love flan and this looks amazing! I will have to try it soon!

This is really interesting because of the “flip”. Looks like it turned out absolutely perfect. I’m sure I’d love it!
What kind of pan do I need? Can I used regular round cake pans?
I used a bundt pan,but anything will work!
Okaay, Thank You :)
Another question, what if I don’t want to make this way. Can I just bake a chocolate cake and flan separately and just stack the on each other? Sorry :)
Of course! I think it’s so interesting this way because the chocolate cake is SO moist, almost like a fudgy, brownie flan. I would suggest baking them together, but I have seen people bake them separately.
Yeah, It is interesting that way, How you can mix chocolate and flan together. But Im going to try both ways to see which comes out better. Thanks for the advice. :)
Yes, please do! I would LOVE to see the difference!
I Will …Thanks
This is the ideal answer. Everyone should read this
this looks like a great recipe!!
never made flan before and this is the exact motivation i need!! looks delicous!!
It’s delicious, even if you don’t like flan! Also, it’s way easier to make for a first attempt
Flan is my all-time favorite dessert. This is such a cool twist! Can’t wait to try it.
It’s the PERFECT combination! The chocolate cake makes the flan even more delicious…if that’s even possible!
Amazing, that is all I have to say!
I am just the opposite of you in that I LOVE flan and the chocolate cake is just an added bonus :) But what a bonus! I have never seen a recipe like this and can’t wait until I can make this (as in, enough other people will be around that I don’t eat the whole thing). Thank you for a really special recipe! Printing and pinning NOW.
Haha then you’ll definitely enjoy this cake! Inviting people is a must; this dessert is so amazing, you’ll want it all to yourself!
