READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Top Review by Bonnie G #2

What a great recipe, a change from regular flan, but all the great creamy taste with the addition of the soft chiffon cake. I thought it was going to be harder and I did have a little trouble with the directions, but when all was said and done it was a steller delight that everyone raved about
