Impossible upside down chocolate and flan cake

May 7, 2010

I’m not sure where this recipe originated or who came up with the crazy name but it certainly lives up to because it is IMPOSSIBLE to mess this up. Unless you’re me of course and just prone to accidents in general…see here AND here.

Note: I cant take credit for this perfectly pictured cake. My boyfriend made this one on his very first try at EVER baking a cake and it was delicious!


  • 1 box of moist chocolate cake mix + ingredients listed on the box
  • 1 box chocolate pudding (dry)
  • 8oz can condensed milk
  • 12oz  can evaporated milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vanilla
  • 1-2 cups caramel


Mix box cake and chocolate pudding and follow the instructions on the box. In a separate bowl, blend eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla. Butter or spray a bunt cake pan and drizzle the caramel onto the bottom. Add box mix and blended mix into the pan. Follow box mix instructions for baking time and temperature. Add 10-15 minutes of baking time until cake is done. Test with toothpick.

let cool (for about an hour) then carefully turn over onto a serving plate. The flan and chocolate cake will have separated leaving you with the flan on the top and chocolate cake on the bottom. Best of both worlds 🙂

    You can put both cake mixture in first and then the milk mixture. It doesn’t really matter because the elements will separate during the cooking process. Thanks!
