To prepare this delicious Biscochuelo, you will need.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease and flour a cake tin.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the 3 cups of flour along with the baking powder. Reserve this mixture.
  3. In another container, beat the eggs and add the sugar. Continue beating until you obtain a foamy, lighter-colored mixture.
  4. Add the melted butter and milk to the egg and sugar mixture. Add the teaspoon of vanilla sugar or essence and mix well.

  1. Place half of a plastic bottle in the center of the mold, mouth side down. Pour just a little of the vanilla batter into the mold and then pour just a little of the chocolate batter over the bottle. Repeat the operation until the mixture is finished.
  2. Finally, very carefully remove the plastic bottle.
  3. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
