The Best Flancocho Ever
Dominican Cake + Flan
Flancocho is the choco-creamy dessert of our Latinx dessert dreams. It’s half flan, half bizcocho or cake, and 100% delicioso. This combo postre marries two of our all-time favorites and it is a new classic we’ll be making for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas.
That’s how good it is.
If you are from the D.R. you know: Dominican cake is famous for being light as air, with a meringue layer called suspiro on top. And if you live near New York City, then you really know: the place to buy el mejor and most auténtico Dominican cake in the triborough area is at a neighborhood store in Brooklyn called Angela’s Bakery.
Dominican Cook Belqui Makes her First Flancocho!
To check out Angela’s Bakery flancocho in time for the holiday baking season, we decided to try it for ourselves here at Familia Kitchen. We immediately thought of one of our favorite Dominican home cooks Belqui Ortiz-Millili of the cooking blog Belqui’s Twist.
To bake flancocho for your family and friends this holiday or any time of year, check out Angela’s very own recipe, below. And to make this instant-classic dessert even more authentic, skip the grocery store cake box and use traditional Dominican cake, which uses darker cocoa. Belqui recommends Angela's Dominican Cake Mix - Chocolate but if you are all about vanilla, make your flancocho with Angela's Dominican Cake Mix - Vanilla.
