Choco Flan

While this can be made with any flavor of cake mix I first had it with chocolate. After first tasting this 11 years ago, I asked my friend Juanita to come over and teach me this recipe. This has become a family favorite that my siblings often clamor for. This is fun to make with kids too as the cake batter is placed in the pan first, and the milk mixture on top. While it bakes however, the milk mixture turns to flan and ends up on the bottom, or top once it is inverted after baking.

Any flavor cake mix - mix as directed
3 eggs
1 container apple caramel dip, or "Cajeta" caramel, (this can be found in the mexican section at Walmart)
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can nestle media crema milk (this is canned cream, which can also be found at Walmart and other grocery stores in the mexican foods section)
Walnuts or nuts of your preference

Generously butter bottom and sides of large, deep baking dish. Spread caramel
evenly over bottom. Sprinkle walnuts on top of caramel. Spread prepared cake mix over the caramel and nut mixture. In a blender, combine the eggs and milks. Pour egg and milk mixture over the cake. Bake at 350* until cake comes out done, approximately 1 hour. Immediately invert and serve.
