This stunning dessert is as delicious as it looks.
Special equipment: Bundt pan and roasting pan large and deep enough to accommodate the Bundt pan.
For the caramel:
1 ½ cups sugar
For the flan:
1 cup milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Boxed chocolate cake mix
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a heavy saucepan, melt sugar until all crystals are dissolved and the mixture turns golden brown. Be VERY careful. Sugar can burn easily and once it burns, it becomes bitter.
Pour the melted sugar into the Bundt pan and swirl to coat the sides and set aside.
In a medium bowl mix the eggs, milk, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla until smooth.
Pour the mixture into the Bundt pan and lower it into the larger roasting pan. Fill the roasting pan with water until it reaches halfway up the outside of the Bundt pan. Place the pan in the oven for 20 minutes.
