2 cups powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Melt chocolate with oil, liqueur, water and coffee granules in double boiler over barely simmering water. Transfer to a large bowl and beat in egg yolks with wooden spoon until well blended. Add dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Beat egg whites in large bowl with mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Use a large rubber spatula to fold them into the batter. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake until firm to the touch and a slightly sugary crust has formed, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. For the frosting, beat the coffee mixture and butter into the powdered sugar until frosting is thick and spreadable. Spread over the top and sides of the cake.
Serves 10 to 12

    By golly you better tell me you're making your own Irish Cream! If not, I'll share my recipe with you. I make GALLONS of the stuff every year during the Turkey/XMAS holidays. I make XMAS baskets for all my friends with the homemade Irish Cream, Kahlua, breads and candy. The Lad is getting quite antsy here wondering if I'll make it early this year. He is such a NUT CASE. Your cake recipe sounds delightful. I just may have to bake it in mini bundt pans and include a few in my XMAS baskets...LOL CHEERS, CC
