Notes on Ingredients

Creating this masterpiece requires a few key ingredients:

  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray: Ensures your cake comes out of the pan smoothly.
  • SMUCKER’S® Caramel Flavored Topping: Adds a sweet and rich caramel layer.
  • Devil’s Food Cake Mix: The base of our rich chocolate layer.
  • Water, Eggs, and Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil: Essential for preparing the cake mix.
  • EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk and PET® Evaporated Milk: These milks create the creamy flan layer.
  • Cream Cheese: Adds richness and creaminess to the flan.
  • Vanilla Extract: Enhances the flavor of both the cake and flan.

How to Make Chocolate Flan Cake

  1. Preparation: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Generously coat a 12-cup fluted tube pan with nonstick spray. Pour the caramel topping into the prepared pan.
  2. Cake Batter: Beat the devil’s food cake mix, water, 3 eggs, and vegetable oil together until well combined. Pour this mixture evenly over the caramel topping.
  3. Flan Mixture: In a blender, combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, 4 eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla extract. Process until smooth and pour slowly over the cake batter.
  4. Baking: Cover the pan tightly with foil coated with nonstick spray. Place the pan in a large roasting pan and add hot water to a depth of 2 inches. Bake for about 2 hours, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  5. Cooling and Inverting: Let the cake cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and invert the cake onto a serving plate. Allow it to cool for an hour at room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving.

  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • ½ cup SMUCKER’S® Caramel Flavored Topping
  • 1 15.25 ounce package devil’s food cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil


  • 1 14 ounce can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 12 ounce can PET® Evaporated Milk
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 12-cup fluted tube pan with nonstick spray. Place a piece of rolled-up foil into the tube part of the pan to prevent cake from spilling over the top. Pour caramel topping into the prepared pan.
  • Beat cake mix, water, 3 eggs, and vegetable oil together in a large bowl until well combined; pour evenly over caramel topping.
  • Combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, 4 eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla in a blender. Process until smooth; pour slowly over cake batter. While baking, the cake will rise and the milk mixture will go to the bottom.
  • Coat a piece of foil with nonstick spray. Cover the pan tightly with foil, coated-side down. Place the pan in a large roasting pan. Pour hot water into the roasting pan to a depth of 2 inches.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs on it, about 2 hours.
  • Place cake on a cooling rack; cool for 15 minutes. Remove foil and invert onto a serving plate. Cool for 1 hour at room temperature. Chill for 4 hours or overnight before serving.
  • Recipe Tip
  • Be careful when inverting hot cake onto the serving plate. Place the plate upside down on top of the pan, place another cooling rack on top, then invert.
