Recently I've been trying to come up with a new flavor to add to my 'roster.' Being that I LOVE chocolate I thought about doing something extra to a great recipe I already use from Glorious Treats. So, I decided to punch up the flavor a bit with Kahlua. Coffee intensifies chocolate so I thought this would be a good addition. I reduced the boiling water to 3/4 cup and replaced with 1/4 cup of Kahlua. In the end the Kahlua flavor was subtle and the cake was deliciously moist. Overall, this cake was a HUGE hit and I would definitely make it again.
Added dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt) to wet ingredients (eggs, oil, milk and vanilla)
