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!
