Today I have for you a cake with the graceful name of Cuban Cake. It is a combination of sponge cake bottom, soaked in coffee with rum, chocolate mass and whipped cream.
The sweet flavors, are broken by a layer of two-color cookies, layered with plum jam. A real treat for lovers of moist and creamy cakes with a hint of alcohol.
