  • Couldn't make up my mind

Kahlua, Coffee, Chocolate Baby Cakes

I wanted to make something with the Kahlua we just bought, ( remember to make some Kahlua ) from the duty free shop in the airport. So I found this recipe and just did a few twists to suit me. I used the new pan my sister in law Sherri gave me for Christmas, well I guess it's not new anymore. I think they turned out really cute and the Kahlua taste shines through.

The Cake is from by Sue Lau



  • For the Cake

  • 3 eggs, separated

  • 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1⁄ 2cup butter

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 2 1⁄4cups all-purpose flour

  • 1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 1⁄2teaspoons baking soda

  • 3⁄4 cup cold coffee ( I used 1/2 Cup Coffee

  • 3⁄4 cup Kahlua ( I used 1 Cup Kahlua)

  • For the Frosting

  • 4 tablespoons butter

  • 1 Cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

  • 2 tablespoons Kahlua

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans. ( I used a baby bunt cake pan) it holds 12 baby cakes 24 total

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Beat egg whites until frothy; then add sugar and beat until stiff peaks form; set aside.

  • Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy; add egg yolks one at a time, beating after each addition.

  • Sift flour, cocoa, and baking soda together in a separate bowl; add to creamed mixture alternatively with coffee and Kahlua, blending well.

  • Fold egg whites into batter.

  • Pour batter into prepared pans.

  • Bake in a preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until done; cool 10 minutes; invert on wire rack; remove pans. Small cakes take about 10 to 12 min.

  • Cool completely before frosting.

  • To prepare frosting, cream butter and confectioners sugar in a large bowl.

  • Add cocoa, Kahlua, and coffee, beating until smooth.

  • Spread frosting on cake; garnish cake with shaved chocolate, if desired.

I know, I show all this sweet food, but really this is what I had for lunch. But.... I am sure I will make rice pudding out of the left over rice.
