Ingredients

  • Pre-heat oven to 375º.
  • Ingredients
  • Flan
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 3 oz. pack cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Cake
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 stick of butter or margarine
  • Caramel
  • 2 cups sugar

Baking Instructions

  1. In a saucepan over medium to low heat place 2 cups of sugar and cook until sugar melts and you get a golden light brown caramel. DO NOT BURN. IT TASTES BAD!!!
  2. Pour the caramel in 9” cake pan and turn all around the pan to coat; set aside.
  3. In a blender, mix 5 eggs, evaporated milk, condensed milk and cream cheese.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 box of the yellow cake mix, 1 egg, butter and vanilla.
  5. First pour the flan mixture into the caramelized mold, then the cake mixture. IT MIGHT SINK, BUT DO NOT MIX!!!
  6. Place the mold in the oven and cook for 45 minutes.
  7. Once it is ready, place in the refrigerator to cool.
  8. When cooled, run a knife all around the mold to unstick it from the pan.
  9. Very carefully, turn it over onto a flat plate just before serving.
  10. Tip
  11. If it doesn’t loosen from pan easily, wet a towel with hot water, wring it out and put on the bottom of the inverted pan until cake loosens

Cake Topping Tip

Cake Topping Tip

Variety is the spice of life, so try different toppings on your cakes. We used spice cake with dulce de leche, fig preserves, powdered sugar, marmalade and ginger preserve, apricot jelly and honey.


cake box cookie - not

cake box cookie - not

Ok what not to do. Started making the double choc. cake box cookies. I was co-pilot and my wife in the pilot's seat. Half way through I realize she has somehow combined the cake recipe and the cookie recipe. We attempted to fix - She added 3 eggs 1 cup water while I prepped the nuts, butter, vanilla and chips. I stopped her and started 'fixing'. Added just over 1/4 cup of flour as well as the other ingredients, mixed and hoped for the best. Well they are cookie shaped and soft and moist not really a cookie and too flat to be cake. But as I was eating one I had an epiphany. They would be perfect for whoopie cakes! Now I have to make some frosting.
