Flan cake, also known as leche flan cake or crème caramel cake, is a Filipino chiffon or sponge cake (mamón) baked with a layer of leche flan (crème caramel) on top and drizzled with caramel syrup. It is sometimes known as "custard cake", which confuses it with yema cake.[1][2][3][4] Modern versions of flan cake can be cooked with a variety of added ingredients. An example is the use of ube cake as the base.[5][6]

A similar Filipino dessert that uses a steamed cupcake (puto mamón) as the base is known as puto flan.[7] Flan cake is very similar to the Puerto Rican dish flancocho, except the latter includes cream cheese.[8]
