Favourite Recipe: Chocolate Kahlua Cake

There’s a very nice lady not too far from us that because of our work schedule, drives the 2 youngest kids to school when she takes her daughter. As an end of the year thank you, I’m baking her one of my favourite recipes. It’s rich, moist, delicious…..and not for the faint hearted calorie counters out there!

I don’t think this cake needs icing as it is extremely moist and full of flavour as it is. In the past I’ve added a dusting of cocoa powder or icing sugar when plated and ready to serve….it makes it that much more special πŸ˜‰

Thank you Christina!
