Cake – Flan aka The Impossible Cake recipe 

Hi, have you ever heard of the Impossible Cake? 

If not or if you want to have a go I’ve done it today and after 2 hours there’s not much left.


2 eggs

1 cup of sugar

2 Tbsp of butter

1/2 cup of chocolate powder 

1 cup of flour

1tsp of baking powder 

Mix in the blender or food processor the eggs, sugar, butter and chocolate, pour in to a bowl and blend in your flour and baking powder. 


2 eggs

1 can of condensed milk 

1 cup of milk

Blend in the blender or food processor.

The impossible factor:

Caramelise a tin of choice, you can do it in a bread loaf tin as well.

Pour the cake batter first and carefully pour the flan mix over it. 

Place tin in bain-marie and pop in the oven at 180c for 40 minutes.

After cooking, set aside to cool completely before flipping to a serving plate. 

What happens is that while cooking the mixtures swap places, the cake batter rises and the flan sinks this is due to the air in the cake batter. 

Hope you give it a go and let me know how it turned out. 

Lots of love
