Brownie Flan

Surprise your valentine with this delicious chocolate treat!


1/2 Cup Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
11 tbsp butter
7 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 3/4 cup milk
1 can condensed milk (about 1 cup)
1 bar of cream cheese (8oz) room temp
zest of 1 orange
pinch of salt
1.5 tbsp orange liqueur
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

For the brownie layer, melt the butter and chocolate in the microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between so as not to burn the chocolate. In a separate bowl, beat 3 eggs with the sugar and 1/2 tsp of vanilla until the mixture begins to pale and get frothy – 3 minutes or so. After the chocolate and butter mixture has cooled a bit, add it to the egg mixture by tempering, or mixing it in little by little, so that the heat from the butter and chocolate doesn’t scramble your eggs! Add in the orange liqueur.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in 2-3 parts (so you don’t get flour all over you and you are able to mix the batter uniformly). Pour the batter into a greased bundt/flan pan.

For the flan, mix together the milk, 4 eggs, cream cheese, condensed milk, and orange zest. Pour the batter into the pan, over the brownie mix, and cover with aluminum foil.

Place the bundt pan in a large cake or roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into the pan to come up about an inch on the bundt pan. Bake for 90 minutes. Let the brownie flan cool to room temp, then carefully flip the dessert onto a serving dish. I topped mine with a bit of chocolate ganache (semisweet chocolate melted with a touch of heavy cream). Cool in the refrigerator and serve cold. Enjoy with a glass of milk!
