Cake Recipe

"Ok, i wasn't sure about the size cans of the milks (used the larger one), the tube pan overflowed a little during baking, and I had to bake it for 1 hour, 20 min, and I thought for sure it was going to be a disaster, BUT! wow, it turned out to be gorgeous and delicious!
Next time I will put in less caramel (a touch too sweet for us), and not over fill the pan... Thanks for this fun recipe."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 box Devil's Food cake mix; (Duncan Heins prefered)
1 12-oz can Coke
1 can Evaporated milk; (regular, not light)
1 can Condensed milk
3 Eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
1 bottle Caramel

Original recipe makes 10

Servings  

Preparation

Heat oven to 350 degrees

1.) Follow instructions to make cake, but use the can of coke instead of water.

2.) Set cake mix aside and make flan

3.) Put the flan ingredients in a blender and mix well

4.) Spray the bundt pan with Pam and then cover the bottom with carmel

5.) Pour cake mix into bundt pan.

6.) Pour the flan mix gently down one side of the pan. The flan will go to the bottom and the cake mix will raise up a bit as the flan mixture fills the bottom of the pan.

7.) Set the bundt pan in a larger pan or tray with water. You are creating a double boiler, but you only need a couple inches of water.

8.) Put it all in the oven and it will cook for at least 45 minutes and as much as an hour.

9.) Check the cake doneness with a toothpick. The cake will stay more moist than most cakes you've ever made and you will see it separate a bit from the pan when it is done.

10.) Let is cool and regigerate for several hours.

11.) Take it out two hours before you plan to serve. Turn the bundt pan over and let it sit while warming to room temperature.

12.) The bundt pan should then lift off to reveal a layer of flan, topped with carmel sitting atop a very moist cake.

If you want the flan more creamy you can use 5 eggs istead of 3 and you can add a small package of Philadelphia cream cheese.

I've made this cake dozens of times because its so popular I use Smucker's caramel and I make sure to use pure vanilla extract I also add chocolate chips to the cake mix and 1 teaspoon of Nescafé coffee to the flan mix The cream cheese makes it so much tastier
