My niece and my nephew spent the night with us last night! Having them around is always a blast, especially for my girls. They look so forward to having these sleepovers with their cousins, and although it gets a bit crazy at times, it’s always worth it to see the smiles on their faces!
I’d promised my four-year-old that I would make a cake for them. She wanted to pretend it was a pajama party – which it was, since everyone has been in their pajamas for the past 24 hours and from all the noise, it was definitely a party! I haven’t made flan cake in a long time, and I knew I’d get all the oooh’s and aaaah’s that would put a smile on MY face, too!
This is super fast and easy (it uses a boxed cake mix…yeah, yeah, I know, but sometimes ya’ gotta do whatcha gotta do), and it looks and tastes awesome! I love flan, and when you add caramel sauce and cake into the mix…well, let’s just say that it doesn’t too long!
- 3/4 cup caramel ice cream topping, plus extra for drizzling (mexican caramel topping – “cajeta” – is best here, although regular will work fine; you can also whip up some homemade if you’d prefer)
- 3 eggs
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 18 ounce box yellow cake mix (chocolate would be yummy, too)
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 3 eggs
Preheat your oven to 325 and spray a bundt pan really well with cooking spray.0
