To check if your chocoflan is fully baked, poke it with a fork/knife on all sides. If excess is still on the fork/knife leave it in the oven for another 15 minutes. Repeat this process till fully baked.

With oven mitts take your chocoflan out of the oven and get ready to take it out of the mold right away. Get a serving plate to put your chocoflan on. Place the plate on top of the mold and flip it upside down, hopefully causing your chocoflan to come out.
