Disclaimer: This is not a healthy recipe. This is a died and gone to heaven, lick your plate clean, roll your eyes to the back of your head amazingly good chocolate cake recipe.
Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved cake. However, not just any ordinary cake would do. Only the most decadent, moist and sinfully rich chocolate cake would please this girl. Only a chocolate cake that had notes of espresso in every bite and left a lingering of Kahlua liqueur on her lips. Oh yes. This was not any ordinary girl nor should she have any ordinary chocolate cake.
The Birthday Girl !!!
Moi. Yours truly. Not telling you how old I am but I will say that sometime in the last few years I have gone from people telling me "You're just a baby" to "Oh! Well you look good for your age." Which is almost as much of a compliment as when I get the "OH! Well you look good for having 4 children."
This birthday girl didn't ask for diamonds or pearls, she didn't want a big birthday bash nor did she did ask for a trip to Spain (o.k. maybe I did, but I didn't expect it, just have to throw it out there).
What she did make perfectly loud and clear was..................
Let there be cake! Kahlua Cake!
Chocolate, Espresso, Beautiful Kahlua Cake.
Did I mention that I look forward to this cake starting in early May and start talking about it in early June?
I had the props ready to go in early July.
My Birthday is August 1st. What?
Apparently it was my "Blog Birthday" as well. Simply Healthy Family turned 4 last week.
That calls for another piece of cake if you ask me!
Thanks for making me the best cake ever (again) mommy! xoxo
"It's my birthday, let's party, with Kahlua!"
