Kahlua Coffee Cake

Nor Mac


This recipe was created by giving an old recipe from a pamphlet new life. I changed the recipe making it my own. I also added a Kahlua icing. This is an awesome flavorful rich Kahlua cake. I personally love just about any Kahlua Dessert. This is a favorite of mine and it is really delicious. Please sit down, relax pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy a slice of this delicious coffee cake.
