Valentine’s day is on Thursday this week. So, I thought of my date- my husband. He loves flan. I’ve made egg flan several times before, though mostly when there’s a get together or occasion. I use my mom’s recipe and just alter it to my preference.
I’ve bookmarked this long time ago – it’s called Chocoflan. I was just waiting for the right time to make this. I’ve eaten something similar to this but instead of chocolate cake, it was white.
I think this chocoflan cake is actually cool since the cake and flan layer will switch at the end. This is also a good alternative for typical cakes with frostings on top. And flan lover like my husband will love this flan variation.
I caramelized the sugar (no cream or milk) just like my mom’s traditional flan instead of the cajeta. I used loaf pans because I prefer not to serve it all at once and easier for me to store. And yes, aluminum foil since these non-stick pans got scratches (they are not old…just missused by me).
The flour mixture for the cake. It has chocolate flavor but it’s not too rich.
Now I now what to bring on potlucks.
