Chocolate Kahlua Cake

Chocolate Kahlua Cake

This is another recipe that’s an old favorite of mine. Growing up, my mom would make this Chocolate Kahlua Cake for all kinds of events: pot lucks, parties, holiday gatherings. And it was always a hit!

This cake is unbelievably decadent, and oh so irresistible. The cake itself is moist, super chocolaty, and packed with chocolate chips. It’s then topped with a yummy chocolate Kahlua glaze, to make it look just as good as it tastes!

The Kahlua really kicks up the flavor of this cake to make it wonderfully rich. You can’t taste any alcohol, and this cake is suitable for all ages to enjoy!
