Need help planning a baptismal birthday party? Never fear! The Lutheran Ladies’ Lounge party-planning committee is here!
In this four-segment Sharathon episode, the Ladies provide friendly advice to anyone hoping to celebrate a baptism birthday in style. Rachel (subcommittee for interesting conversation) starts things off with a short Trivia Challenge all about the history and theology of baptism. Erin (recipe subcommittee) introduces a luscious simul-justus-et-peccator-inspired dessert recipe for Choco-Flan, also known as Impossible Cake. Sarah (music subcommittee) tells the story of a beloved baptism hymn: “God’s Own Child, I Gladly Say It,” and Bri (subcommittee for fun) brings it home with five tips for planning the most enjoyable party possible.

Erin’s friend’s recipe for Choco-Flan
Recipe from Clelia Gonzalez
Preheat oven at 350.
For the cake: store bought cake mix, I personally like Devil’s food one because to me is more chocolatey, but any chocolate cake mix will do, prepare cake mix as per instructions in the box.
For flan: you’ll need 6 large eggs, one can of evaporated milk, one can of condensed milk, a dash of vanilla extract, put all ingredients in blender, until well mixed.
Now, grease, with butter or non-stick spray, a Bundt cake pan, now proceed pouring all the cake batter. When done proceed to slowly pour all of the flan mix, bake for about 40-50 mins, or until you stick a fork/toothpick and comes out clean.
Let it cool down, and store in fridge. Once it is cold, you can release it onto a plate. Decorate with “cajeta/dulce de leche or caramel syrup and chopped pecans, you can decorate it prior to storing in fridge or prior to eating it.
