Chocoflan Recipe - Chocolate Flan Cake Recipe



This is one recipe which was requested for quite a long time on my blog. Finally i made it and it turned out so good..Ofcourse it needs some work and effort but frankly pretty simple to make, but taste so yummy..I have already shared a plain caramel custard recipe here..




The taste of this is so yummy, A delicious chocolate cake with a creamy vanilla custard and the finger licking licking dulce de leche topping taste heaven when cold. I loved the chocolate cake layer in this and hubby loved the flan layer. I think this is a perfect christmas cake so give it a try..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..



Preparation Time : 15 mins
Baking Time : 1 hour to 1 1/4 hour
Serves: 15 to 18

PAN USED : 12 cup capacity bundt cake pan
My 1 cup measures 240 ml

Ingredients:

Dulce de Leche or Caramel Sauce as needed (Recipe here)

For Cake:
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 3/4 cup / 210 grams
Sugar - 1 cup / 200 grams
Unsalted Butter - 150 grams / 10 tblspn
Baking Powder - 3/4 tsp
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 3/4 tsp
Egg - 1
Cocoa Powder - 1/3 cup / 40 grams
Milk - 1 1/4 cup / 300 ml
Vinegar - 1.5 tsp

For Flan:
Eggs - 4
Sweetened Condensed Milk - 1 can / 400 grams
Milk - 1 cup / 240 ml
Vanilla Essence - 1 tblspn

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Grease a 12 cup bundt cake pan really well with oil. Set aside. 

Take milk in a jug, add in vinegar and mix well. Set aside for 5 mins.

Now i used dulce de leche, so i warmed it little in a pan till it gets spreadable. You can use caramel sauce them dont need to warm it.

Pour the sauce over the pan and set aside.

Now lets make the cake batter. Take flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder in a sifter and sieve it. Set aside.

Take butter, sugar in a bowl and beat till fluffy.

Add in egg and beat till fluffy.

Add in half the flour mix and half of the milk mix and mix well.

now add remaining flour and milk mix and fold gently.

Spoon this over the caramel topping and spread it evenly. Now set aside in a baking tray with high side.

Now Take eggs, condensed milk and vanilla in a blender and whip well. Add in milk and mix well. Pour this over the cake and cover the whole thing with foil.

Now pour over hot boiling water on the tray and let it come half way through the pan.

Bake this covered for 1 hour to 1 1/4 hour. Insert a tooth pick to check whether the cake is done. If the toothpick comes out clean then it is done.

Remove it from oven and let it cool down for 1 hour.

Now invert it carefully. if it is not sliding out, dip the pan in boiling water and invert it. It will melt the caramel and will slide out easily.

Now chill the cake for few hours before serving.,

  5. This looks absolutely yummy Aarthi. How did you invert the cake without damaging it? Will the dulce de leche not stick to the pan and hold the cake?
