Tarta de Oreo y chocolate

tartaoreo2

So I have discovered this amazing blog named Historias del Ciervo, which is driving me mad with those astonishing cakes. I have tried one or two and that guy is pure magic cooking.

Also, I have the incredible help of my boyfriend who has that wonderful patience to put the cake together while I was recording a video.

So today’s recipe is an adaptation from one of his. I have used some purple food colouring to give it a look more… me. Also, I have reduced the amount of Oreo and add a little more chocolate because, well, I can’t avoid it when it’s about chocolate. I have also making some changes when baking so I get a taller cake.

Beat the butter until smooth and add the sugar. Mix until combine.

Add the eggs (slightly beaten) little by little and the vanilla extract and mix.

End up by adding the flour and the buttermilk. Make it that way: divide the flour in 3 parts and the buttermilk in two. Start adding one part of flour, then one of buttermilk, and go on alternating both.
