This cake is for the chocoholic. This cake is a very fudgy cake. It reminds me of brownie like torte. I switched up some ingredients, and made this into a chocolate Kahlua cake. It is dense, and full of rich Chocolate Kahlua flavor. It is topped off with a rich Icing. This is a great dessert with Ice cream, or Whipped cream. Enjoy!
