Original recipe yields 2 cakes

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray 2 9-inch fluted tube cake pans (such as Bundt® pans) with cooking spray.
  2. Spread half the cajeta into the bottom of each prepared cake pan. Place sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, 4 eggs, and vanilla extract into a blender, cover the blender, and pulse several times to break up the eggs; blend until thoroughly mixed, about 30 seconds. Pour half the milk mixture into each cake pan.
  3. Place the cake mix into a mixing bowl, add the water, vegetable oil, and 3 eggs, and beat with an electric mixer on low speed to combine, about 30 seconds; increase speed to medium, and beat until the cake batter is smooth, about 2 more minutes. Scrape half the cake mix into each pan, on top of the flan ingredients.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven, and flip pans over onto cake serving pans while still hot to remove from pans. Allow to cool before serving.

OMG, the flavors are spectacular! I love this cake! A couple things, I would like just one big cake, not two little ones. Maybe cook a large cake in a water bath for a longer time. Also I was not familiar with the cajeta. It tasted good to me but I thought it was too sticky for people with dental issues aka dentures lol. I am going to try with Hersheys caramel syrup so my husband doesn't get lockjaw haha. LOVE THIS RECIPE - WILL DEFINITELY MAKE AGAIN!

We call this flancocho back home in PR. We usually do not make it with spice cake but with yellow cake or by mixing in chunks of ready-made pound cake with the flan mixture. I wanted to try this recipe because of the cajeta and the spice cake variation. I think it is great but I did have a hard time with the cajeta (dulce de leche) because it was very hard to spread it evenly in the pans. What worked for me was putting some cajeta in the pans and then putting the pans in the oven for a few minutes for it to soften enough so that I could spread it easier. Still, I would rather make a regular flan caramel (heating/caramelizing sugar and water) and use that next time instead of the cajeta. I think it would taste better and also it would look prettier when flipped.
