I love Kahlua. I decided to create my own signature Kahlua cakes. I revamped a regular chocolate cake recipe and made it my own. I tweaked the ingredients and added a sauce and divided it up and made them into individual cakes.These are deep rich chocolate cakes with Kahlua. Top with ice cream and my Kahlua chocolate sauce. These are a Kahlua lovers dream. Enjoy!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make sauce:
Mix coffee, sugar, Kahlua, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
2
Mix in chocolate chips. Reduce heat to medium. Stir until melted. Mix cornstarch with water. Add to chocolate mixture. Stir until thickened like syrup. Remove from heat. Pour in to bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
3
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour muffin tin. Set aside.
4
Melt 2 TBSP of butter with the 8 ounces of chocolate on medium heat in sauce pan. Stir constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
5
In a bowl beat remaining softened butter, brown sugar, and Kahlua. Beat until smooth. Set aside.
6
In a bowl beat the eggs. Add to melted chocolate a little at a time. Mix until well combined. Mix in the Kahlua mixture. Combine flour and salt. Mix into batter. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill muffin tins to about 3/4 full.
