Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why is the chocolate flan cake falling apart when I invert it?

It may happen when the cake is not fully set or has not cooled down enough before flipping. You can run a knife along the edges of the Bundt pan to help release the cake before attempting to flip it.

Why does the flan have a grainy texture?

It may occur when the flan is overbaked. Maintain a consistent temperature when making the flan and avoid overcooking by checking its doneness regularly using a skewer or a toothpick. It should come out clean.

Why didn’t the flan and cake layers separate properly?

When layers do not separate properly, it could be because of insufficient baking or because the ratio of flan to cake batter is not correct. Follow the recipe instructions for the best chocolate flan cake.
