I'd been questing after a good chocolate flan cake recipe after we had it had a party, my family and I LOVED it, but the person who made it was all secretive about the recipe and wouldn't give it up! (Party-pooper! A good recipe is MEANT to be shared!) The reviews on this recipe here looked outstanding so I gave it a whirl! I must admit, initially I thought two hours (is that possibly a *typo* on the recipe-provider's part? Two hours???) seemed like a really long time to back a cake and not over-bake it, so I monitored it closely while I was baking mine. I don't know if different oven heating/bake times can vary THAT much that everyone here seems to have such differing results...but after one hour, mine was done, toothpick came out with just a few crumbs on it, and I can't imagine letting the cake go another 30 minutes, let alone another hour without ruining the whole thing! So my only caution would be for you to watch your cake closely the first time you make it to see what your oven's bake time will be on it. On hour was perfect for mine. I also did the 10 minutes continued sitting in the hot water after taking out of the oven, and an additional 15 minutes on a wire rack as others suggested here, before inverting the cake onto a plate. Then I immediately put it int he fridge to chill. The caramel absorbs into the cake and voila! The cake was perfection! Took it to a gathering and it was a total hit! :)
