Irish Coffee Chocolate Cake

Today is National Irish Coffee Day. Last year I posted an Irish Coffee Chocolate Mousse recipe, and it's really good. This year, I'm posting a recipe for Irish Coffee Chocolate Cake. If you're a purist, you'll want to substitute your own chocolate cake and pudding recipes for the box mixes. If you're in a hurry, though, this is a great easy recipe! A terrific way to celebrate the day.

No time to bake? Go to your favorite Irish Pub and raise a glass of Irish Coffee. Have some chocolate in your pocket. Stir it in!

IRISH COFFEE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ingredients
1 box chocolate cake mix (Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake)
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
3 tablespoons instant coffee
3/4 cup Irish whiskey
1/2 cup water
1 small package instant chocolate pudding
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or broken up pieces of dark chocolate
Whipped cream

Directions
1. Combine the cake mix, oil, eggs, instant coffee, whiskey, water and pudding mix. Blend well. Fold in the chocolate chips/broken up pieces of chocolate. Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan.
2. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool completely.

Boy does this sound good, and with a name like Tierney you can imagine that we always have Irish whiskey on hand! ;-)
