The decoration of this cake is simple but it makes it unique, as it has walnuts and cherries in syrup that you will crave when you see it.


16 portions
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup Water, tibia
  • 1/2 cans evaporated milk
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons liquid vanilla
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 cup walnut, chopped
  • 3 cups grated sweet coconut


Preheat the oven to 180 ° C, grease and flour a rectangular mold or two square molds. Sift the flour along with the cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Apart, beat the butter and when it is soft, add the sugar little by little, incorporating the eggs one by one while continuing to beat.
Add a little of the flour mixture and a little warm water (previously combined with the vanilla), alternating until finishing with the flour.
Empty this mixture into the mold or molds, put them in the oven for approx. 40 to 45 minutes, until when inserting a toothpick, it comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn over a rack to allow it to cool completely. Proceed to prepare the bitumen.
Put on low heat condensed milk, evaporated milk, butter bar and sugar. Always wagging with a wooden spoon and without neglecting a single moment.
When the sugar has dissolved, separate half a cup of this mixture and combine it separately with the 3 egg yolks. Empty this mixture to the milk and put everything to simmer or bain marie, continuing to move until it thickens (that is, until you see the bottom of the vessel in which you are preparing it, more or less 45 minutes).
When it has already thickened, add coconut, walnut and vanilla. Stir everything very well. Chill and stuff the cake or cakes one on top of the other.


Garnish with chopped walnut or whole cherries. Accompany with snow the flavor of your preference or just alone.


If not thick, you can add half a sachet of Maizena Sabor Nuez or Coco and remove from the fire, stirring for 5 more minutes. It will add more flavor and consistency to bitumen.

creo que dos y media tazas de harina es mucha cantidad no va en proporción con la cantidad de azúcar, mantequilla y huevos. Lo preparé con 1 1/2 y me quedó perfecto
