Magic Flan Cake

Magic Flan Cake

Magic Flan Cake – a delicious cake with a chocolate cake and flan cake layer. The magic happens when it bakes as the chocolate layer floats to the top and the flan to the bottom.

It’s time for another magic cake recipe. I just can’t ever get tired of these amazing magic cakes. Yesterday when I posted the 1 Ingredient Caramel Sauce, I mentioned that something special was coming. Well this is it.

In all the baking that I’ve done over the years, I have to say this is my favorite cake that I have ever made. Yep, that’s saying a lot, but I absolutely love flan, and when paired together with a delicious layer of chocolate cake, you have magic. That caramel sauce can be used in many ways, like sweetening your coffee in the morning, or to make caramel apple dip, but my favorite way is to drizzle it over cakes.


  • ½ cup (155g) caramel sauce
  • ½ cup plus 2 tbsp (60g) all purpose flour
