Simply Irresistible Mexican Hot Chocolate Flan

Ingredients:
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 1 tablet Mexican chocolate (Abuelita or Ibarra brand)
  • 1/2 cup Cajeta (or caramel sauce)
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 eggs

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.

Chop the Mexican chocolate tablet into medium pieces.

Chopped Mexican Chocolate





In a small saucepan, heat the evaporated milk over medium heat until very warm. (Do NOT boil!) Pour the warm milk over the chocolate and let set a couple of minutes until the chocolate begins to melt.

Stir with a spoon or wire whisk to completely dissolve the chocolate.

Melted Mexican Chocolate


Pour the cajeta in the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan, tilting to coat the bottom of pan; set aside. (I like to bake my flan in a shallow cake pan, so there is less chance of it breaking when I flip it over to serve.)

In a blender cup, combine the evaporated milk with chocolate, the sweetened condensed milk and the eggs. Puree until smooth. Carefully pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared cake pan.

Place the cake pan inside a larger cake pan and fill the larger cake pan with about 1-inch of hot water. (This is called a water bath or Bain Marie aka BaƱo Maria.)

Bake for about 45 minutes or until the very center of the flan is only slightly jiggly.

Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

To serve, place a serving plate, face-down on top of the flan. Grabbing both the serving plate and the baking dish, gently flip the flan over; remove baking pan.

Enjoy!!!

It looks wonderful!
I'll bet that would be off the charts with a nice raspberry sauce as well.
Go ahead...play with your food!
