  • Pour caramel sauce into 12-cup fluted tube pan sprayed with cooking spray. Blend evaporated milk, cream cheese, 4 eggs, vanilla and sugar in blender until smooth.

  • Beat cake mix, water, oil and remaining eggs with mixer until blended. Add sour cream; mix well. Pour over caramel in tube pan; gently ladle flan mixture over cake batter. Cover pan with foil sprayed with cooking spray, sprayed-side down. Place in larger pan. Add enough water to larger pan to come halfway up side of tube pan.

  • Bake 1-1/2 hours or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate 2 hours. Loosen dessert from side of pan; invert onto plate. Remove pan. Serve dessert topped with COOL WHIP.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise: Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

How to Unmold Chocoflan: Place serving plate over cake pan. Invert dessert onto plate. Gently remove pan; spoon any remaining caramel left in pan.

Substitute: Caramel sugar is a great substitute for Mexican caramel sauce. Simply mix 1/2 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp. water in saucepan; cook on medium heat 7 min. or until sugar is deep golden brown. Pour into prepared pan; continue as directed.

I thought the recipe was easy and great. It wasn't too sweet which was nice. However I didn't love that it was more chocolate cake than flan. I would recommend if you want an even amount of both to put half and half of each mix. For my first time I was pleased. The camera came out in between which a nice touch. Personally I still need to find a more authentic flavor one but I really appreciate this 1 recipe here!! If it's your first time you definitely should give it a try. Thanks for sharing!:) Read More
