KAHLUA MEXICAN CHOCOLATE CAKE: National Kahlua Day!

Today is National Kahlua Day! I love Kahlua. It's such a versatile liqueur. Kahlúa is dense and sweet, with the taste of coffee, from which it is made. Kahlúa also contains sugar, corn syrup and vanilla bean, so you see why it's often matched with chocolate in drinks, cakes, pies and candy.

I have a great Kahlua promotional cookbook/pamphlet: The Best of Kahlua: A Guide to Food and Entertaining. (1970). There are some really great recipes in this book, but for National Kahlua Day, I think this recipe for Mexican Chocolate Kahlua Cake is perfect! Make it today or save the recipe and make if for Cinco de Mayo. You can also add a pinch of cayenne powder to give it a kick!
