This cake recipe was created by me; I wanted to try something unique, something that is different than any cakes that I have made before. This 3 layer cake is creamy and so moist! The result was amazing! My friends and family loved it!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a fluted cake pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray.

  • Beat cake mix, 1 cup water, vegetable oil, and 3 eggs together in a bowl with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and beat until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes.

  • Beat condensed milk, evaporated milk, 4 eggs, and vanilla extract together in another bowl until flan mixture is smooth, about 3 minutes. Pour into prepared cake pan. Pour 3/4 of the strawberry cake batter on top of the flan mixture. Set cake pan in a roasting pan. Pour water into the roasting pan to read halfway up the sides of the cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 45 to 55 minutes. Cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 6 hours.

  • Place a plate on top of the cake pan and invert to loosen cake. Flip cake pan and plate back to return cake to the pan.

  • Combine boiling water and gelatin in a bowl; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Pour 1 cup cold water into gelatin mixture. Let cool until gelatin mixture is warm to the touch. Pour gelatin mixture into the cake pan along the sides so that the gelatin runs under the cake and cake begins to float. Refrigerate until set; at least 5 hours.

  • Remove cake from refrigerator and place pan in hot water to loosen from the sides of the cake pan. Invert onto a serving plate.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe is all about technique. You have to follow the exact recipe and have patience. Your results will be rewarding. You can use the left over cake batter to make cupcakes.

When the cake batter is poured on top of the flan they will mix together but they will separate during the cooking process.

Make sure the Jell-O(R) does not touch the cake or else the cake will absorb all the Jell-O(R) then you will not have the Jell-O(R) on top.

It wasn't bad.. I made my own cake recipe instead of a package of strawberry cake mix and i coloured my cake mixture with a quarter of strawberry jell-o package.. I think it was a good idea if you don't have a strawberry cake mix.. I reduced the amount of the flan mixture into the half because my pan was smaller in size.. One thing that i think was a big mistake following in this recipe is putting the cake pan after the gelatine was cold and set in a boiling water.. It was a disaster the gelatine turned into liquid all over again and so i had to return it into the refrigerator 6 hours again..Or maybe it was my mistake putting boiling water instead of just warm water! So i would recommend to skip this part and just invert the the cake pan normally and just tap hard on the pan edges to loosen it and it would come out just perfect.. Overall the shape of the cake with the three layers was lovely!! This recipe will be a keeper for sure Read More

I made it exactly as recipe directed. It's so delicious such a big hit. Just be careful when you transfer to a serving plate. If you put the pan in hot water the jello melts really fast so I put it back in the refrigerator until form sets then I flipped it on a serving tray and wet a towel with hot water placed it over the pan and it came out perfect. Thank you for the recipe. Great job. Read More
