This looks impressive, I love the idea of it, and it’s easy and quick (aside from all the waiting), which makes me want to try tweaking it before moving on. The weaknesses are that a) the cake is bland — I’d like to up the chocolate and sugar but don’t want to wind up with something overly dry, and b) getting the thing out of the mold was ridiculously hard given that I couldn’t possibly spray it more. I set it in warm water for a few minutes and still needed to pound the hell out of it. Is there a better way to coat the mold? (Mine is the same as in the photos.)

I’m not sure how this has so many good reviews. I made it exactly to recipe, it looked like the picture… but the flan was dense and wet at the same time. When I think flan, I think light, creamy and almost runny. The flan on this was stiff, eggy (too many egg whites I think), and just oddly textured. The cake part turned out fine. Major disappointment and I served it as a birthday cake.

I made it yesterday following the recipe exactly. It was done at an hour and 45 minutes. After cooling to room temp I refrigerated it overnight. It was a little resistant to coming out of the pan so I dipped it in a sink of warm water for a few minutes and it came right out. It was a big hit and impressive looking!

My Latín family was very critical. I followed the recipe, it was ready at 1hour and 45min. My family LOVED it!! This is seriously the BEST Choco-Flan we have ever had!! The flan is not wet or runny. I shared the recipe with all my sisters. It was a huge HIT!! Thank you for posting this recipe. I will making this again! ;)

I thought there was a typo with this recipe (Step 5: cake batter then flan) but follow the recipe! Magic happens and flan ends up on the bottom which then becomes the top once you remove from the pan. This recipe was easy to make but super impressive when you share photos with your friends and family. I highly recommend if you're a fan of chocoflan!

So delicious and very fun to make. Followed the recipe exactly, baked for about 2:30 (I think I over baked it by a smidge, was worried the flan wouldn’t be set). Delicious cake, creamy flan, and so so pretty. Will definitely make it again!
