Pour the 8 eggs into the bowl and the two tablespoons of vanilla. Remember that the vanilla should preferably be dark to provide a better smell to the mixture. Finally, add a tablespoon of coffee.

Baking the mix
Once you consider that the mixture has a homogeneous consistency, turn off the mixer.
Prepare the tray with a non-stick spray, or if you don't have it, simply grease the tray with butter or oil.
Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet. Ideally, the mixture should be three-quarters of the total size, remembering that the cake will grow in the oven. With the amount of ingredients in this recipe you can use a mold no. 10.
Preheat the oven to 325º F and bring the mixture there, letting it bake for 50 to 60 minutes. You will know that the cake is ready when you prick it with a toothpick and it comes out dry and without dough.
Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Unmold it on a tray where you can decorate it.

Repeat this same procedure with the next remaining layers.
With the same chocolate bitumen, cover the sides and the top of the cake with the help of the spatula.
On the top, make any decoration you like. A good and quick option is a simple and rustic decoration, making peaks with the spatula. To do this, just make circular movements lifting with the spatula.
Finally, add a drizzle of chocolate or a little syrup for a final touch. Also, you can add and garnish some chopped strawberries on top.
