Holiday Recipes from Our Residents: Sara’s “Impossible” Cake

Selfhelp resident Sara K. shares her favorite dessert recipe, perfect for making your Rosh Hashanah meal a delicious one…
Sara loves to cook, especially sweet food. Being from Argentina, her cooking style reflect a very tasteful twist. Her “impossible” cake is a prime example. This tasty dish is a favorite among her friends and family as its complexity makes for a uniquely tasty eating experience!
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • ½ tbs vanilla
  • 1 can regular milk
  • Chocolate cake mix
  • Caramel
  1. Beat the five eggs together (not too much).
  2. Add a can of condensed milk, a can of evaporated milk, and use the can of the evaporated milk to measure and add that same amount of regular milk.
  3. Add the vanilla and mix it all together (this is the flan).
  4. Separately, make the batter of a chocolate cake according to the instructions on the box. Then, inside a fluted tube cake pan coated in caramel, pour out the chocolate cake mixture. Then, carefully add the flan mixture on top evenly.
  5. Place that into the oven at 350 degrees with no cover for about an hour. It will be ready when you insert a toothpick all the way through and it comes out clean of cake and flan. Take it out of the oven when it’s ready, let it cool for a while, and flip it over out of the pan when it’s done.

Enjoy! The Selfhelp Home Wishes You a Happy, Healthy Rosh Hashanah!
