Hola Amigos: One of the best things about the Holiday season is food! Ham, Turkey, Pork, Rice the sides you name it, but what I really love is something I always bake no matter what right around this time, Flan! It's a typical dessert for Christmas and celebrations in many Latin American  countries and the best part is that is super easy to make.

This time I decided to try friend's recipe for chocolate flan that I knew it was going to be a hit since it combines the best of the best, chocolate cake and flan! yumm!!! It takes a little time in the oven, but at the end you get rewarded for your patience with the best dessert ever,  a spongy chocolate cake topped with smooth and sweet custard! oh boy!

Don't worry about perfection with this dessert! It's a rustic one, meant to be eaten in a few bites and believe me, it will!. Since it's a cake you can make it pretty for the few minutes it will be at the table with your favorite icing or whipped cream.

I also added more "manjar" or dulce de leche to mine..you can't never have enough of this good thing!
When slice it's just pretty and delicious, a bite of flan and a bite of chocolate cake! Nothing else to say, just enjoy the goodness.

Now tell me if this dessert is not the perfect holiday and festive ending to a great family meal? To my family is what we all look forward to have sometimes even stealing a slice before dinner is ready!

Do you have a family dish you bake or prepare for the holidays by popular demand, something that reminds you of your hometown, of your childhood or that your family just love when you make it every holiday? I would love to know!

Holiday Chocolate Flan Recipe, a classic dressed up for the holiday season!  Chocolate cake and flan together in one tasty and easy to prepare dessert! #flan #chocolatecake #holidayrecipe


Holiday Chocolate Flan 
1 box Chocolate Cake of your choice
Eggs, Oil, Water needed to prepare the cake according to instructions on the box
5 Eggs
1 Cup Evaporated Milk
1 Cup Condensed Milk, divided
1 Cup Dulce de Leche
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 shot Kahlua (optional)
Preheat oven at 350 F degrees.
Prepare the cake according the box instructions. Set aside. 
In a large bowl (I use my blender), add and mix well the eggs,  evaporated milk, condensed milk, vanilla and Kahlua.
Use half of the Dulce the Leche to coat a previously buttered baking dish (a 9 inch square or round). Pour the chocolate cake mix and then the flan mixture. Don't panic if at this moment you see the flan mixture sink to the bottom, that is a good thing! Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in a bath Marie for about 45 minutes or until a fork in the middle comes clean. Remove from oven.
Let it cool for a few minutes and place a plate upside down over the baking dish and turn the plate and baking dish over. 
Decorate if you want with chocolate icing, whip cream and the remaining 1/2 cup of dulce de leche. Enjoy!

Sharing my Sweet festive Flan at these Fabulous Parties:


  1. It looks so rich and dreamy. My son loves Flan. I bet he would like this.

  2. Beautiful! Kahlua should not be an option ;) xo

  3. Lovely! I believe you that it wouldn't last long at the table!
    My Lithuanian grandmothers made a pastry in the shape of bow ties that translated to "little ears." They were deep fried and dusted with powdered sugar. My mother made them a few times and I did once or twice. That is something that I should do more often to keep our heritage alive for the next generation!

  4. G'day and wow Lizy, makes me want to dive right in! :)
    Cheers! Joanne

  5. Omigoodness, this looks divine, kinda like a cross between flan and tres leeches.

  6. Small slices, I'm guessing? Anyway Lizbeth, this looks divine, and I like how the ganache decoration covers up the rustic exterior well. This is definitely on my list to make, so I'll let you know the results :D
