This is THE BEST CAKE ! I made it for a baby shower(shaped & decorated like a bib) and added a chocolate mousse filing between the layers...chocolate heaven! I got so many compliments, everyone said it was the best choc. cake they had ever eaten and wanted to order one! I think I'm now in the cake business. The only substitution I made was 1 cup of hot strong coffee for the liquer and I melted the choc. chips with it. The recipe was perfect for a 12 inch round cake pan to, then I just made 2 batches to layer it. Tres Magnifique !


This cake is excellent! Moist, semi-dense, rich - all of my favorite cake adjectives. I followed recipe exactly, except for usuing 3/4 cup mini chips instead of 1 cup regular. I was going to make a ganache and decided at the last minute to follow the recipe directions for the icing - glad I did! I used a dark chocolate fudge frosting with the Kahlua. We took this to a party and all of the very full guests had to have some. H didn't want to leave it and ate one more piece before we went home. I'll make this again - thanks!


I used this batter for cupcakes and they were the best!!!!!!! As suggested in a review below, I used coffee instead of liqueur and it worked great. I also used the allrecipe "Coffee Butter Frosting" to top the cupcakes.
