I made this cake for my roommate’s birthday. He’s from Spain and doesn’t have any family here. He told me his mom makes this cake for him, so I surprised him with it to give him a little taste of home :)
It’s made with Maria cookies that have been dipped in coffee and are then layered with chocolate frosting. It’s pretty tasty and so easy.
We went out to eat for his birthday at a Mexican food restaurant. It was alright. My mom’s home cooking is better, of course. I could really go for some fideo right now, especially since it’s cold. Or maybe some of my dad’s empanadas de pino, mmmm. Now I’m hungry :(
