How To Make Impossible Cake

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 1 minute
Total Time 2 hours 26 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup cajeta, sweetened caramelized goat's milk syrup

Cake:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons strong brewed coffee
  • 1 cup whole milk

Flan:

  • 2 1/2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the base and sides of a 10-inch fluted tube pan. Dust lightly with flour; tap to remove excess.
  • Fill a shallow baking pan with enough water to come 1/3 of the way up the sides of the tube pan. Place water bath in the oven to warm up while it is preheating.
  • Pour caramel sauce into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until warm and pourable, about 1 minute. Pour into the prepared tube pan, covering the base completely.
  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder together in a bowl.
  • Beat 1/2 cup plus 2 1/2 tablespoons butter in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 egg and coffee. Alternate adding flour mixture and milk, mixing well between additions. Pour cake batter evenly over caramel in the tube pan.
  • Combine evaporated milk, condensed milk, 4 eggs, and vanilla extract in the bowl of a food processor; blend until smooth. Pour over cake batter through a fine sieve.
  • Bake in the water bath in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the chocolate cake comes out clean, about 1 hour.
  • Let cake cool, about 1 hour. Carefully run a thin knife around the edges to loosen the cake, cover with a serving plate, and flip onto the plate.
