More About This Recipe

  • Beyond looking and tasting spectacular, this chocoflan cake does something truly marvelous during the baking process; the custardy flan and the cake batter trade places. It’s a mind-blowing effect that occurs during baking when the chocolate cake batter takes shape and rises to the top of the pan, before the custard has set. It’s true baking magic that produces a multi-layered cake that tastes as good as it looks. Betty Crocker’s five-star recipe and a box of her triple chocolate fudge cake mix make this recipe extra easy. And this is just one way to enjoy this favorite dessert, Betty’s got even more flan recipes for you to try!
