Kahlua Cake


Cake:
1 dark chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup Kahlua
3/4 strong black coffee
2 teaspoon cocoa


Mix all cake ingredients together and beat 4 minutes on medium high. Pour into 2 greased and floured cake pans. Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool.


Once you are able to handle the cakes, cut them in half so that you have a total of 4 cake rounds.


*Helpful hint ...
I put mine in the freezer and let them harder. They are much easier to cut and less crumbly.


Filling:
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips ~ use a good quality brand
8oz. cream cheese
1/2 powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup whipping cream


Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. In a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, then add the powdered sugar and vanilla. Pour the chocolate into the cream cheese mixture and combine. Set aside. Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the chocolate and cream cheese mixture. Spread on the layers of each cake round.


Once this step is completed, I place my cake in the frig to firm up a bit.


Icing:
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips


Heat all the ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a pan and increase heat until it is just beginning to boil. Add Chocolate chips and stir until melted.


Drizzle over cake.
