This is a delicious blend of chocolate, Kahlua and coffee. So you can have your cake and drink your coffee at the same time..lol.. This is not your usual chocolate cake-- I rate it right up there with that delicious "Black Magic" best Chocolate Cake Ever" ,yellow ribbon feature cake, by Lisa Glass. I love that recipe too!! So don't judge this one too harshly. LOL. This was my dad's favorite cake!
