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!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A Kahlua and chocolate lovers dream recipe! Where to begin... the chocolate sauce alone is worth trying this recipe for. There are a few steps, but well worth it. The cake's warm, ooey, gooey chocolate with a slight hint of Kahlua. Ice cream and chocolate sauce on top send this over the top. It's a special dessert but simple enough for every day. It's delicious!
