12 portions
  • 170 grams butter
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons liquid vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup chocolate, melted
  • 3 cups butter, for bitumen
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, for bitumen
  • 1/2 cups cocoa, for bitumen


Preheat the oven to 170 ° C.
For the cake, beat the butter with the sugar for 5 minutes, add the vanilla, cream and beat until integrated.
Add the eggs, the egg whites and beat for 3 minutes. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Divide the preparation into two equal parts, add the melted chocolate to a bowl and mix until integrated.
Pour the preparation in 2 molds previously floured and greased, bake for 50 min. Let cool and reserve.
Match the cakes if necessary, cutting the top of each cake. With the help of a cake leveler or saw knife, cut the biscuits in half horizontally, so that you get 2 plates of the same thickness each.
With the help of 3 plates of different circumferences, cut each cake plate to obtain four circles from largest to smallest.
Join the circles by intercalating the colors, that is, place the vanilla medium in the largest circle of chocolate, continue with a small chocolate and finish with the smallest vanilla flavor. Repeat with the rest of the circles until you get 4 bicolor plates.
For the bitumen, beat the butter until smooth, add the icing sugar and the cocoa. Reserve.
With the help of a stepped spatula, smear a little bit of bitumen on each floor of the cake to glue each one of the pieces, inserting the colored plates.
Cover all the cake with the remaining bitumen and decorate with rosettes.
Cut a slice and enjoy a coffee.


Cover with the bitumen and decorate with rosettes.


It is important that you do not open the oven while baking the biscuits, otherwise they could be lowered.
