Print Recipe


For the flan part

  • I’ve used store bought flan mix - you will need one packet- and you’ll need half the amount of milk recommended on the package or else use your favorite flan recipe.

For the cake

  • 1 1/2 cup A.P. flour.
  • 3/4 cup sugar.
  • 2/3 cup oil.
  • 2/3 cup milk.
  • 2 eggs.
  • a dash of vanilla powder about 1/8th teaspoon - or equivalent in vanilla extract.
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking powder.
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder - optional if you want a chocolate cake.


  • In a bundt pan pour the caramel sauce evenly.
  • In the blender add the flan mix packet - if using store bought one- with half of the milk indicated on the packet itself and blend very well. Or else make your own favorite flan recipe.
  • Now we’ll start making the cake, in your blender add the eggs, vanilla powder, milk, sugar and oil and mix well.
  • Sift the flour with the baking powder- and add cocoa powder if using- in a bowl, add the liquid mixture gradually and mix.
  • Pour the cake batter slowly and evenly over the flan.
  • Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan and fill the roasting pan halfway with hot water..
  • Place in a 350F pre heated oven and bake for 60-75 minutes.
  • Take the bundt pan out and let it cool completely then refrigerate overnight or at least for 4 hours - the more the better.
  • To release the cake, place the pan in a large bowl of hot water, turn it out onto a serving platter.
  • Cut and.. Enjoy!!
