Kahlua Mexican Chocolate Cake for Cinco de Mayo

I love Kahlua. It's such a versatile liqueur. Kahlúa is a Mexican coffee-flavored rum-based liqueur. It's 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 found a great Kahlua promotional cookbook at the flea market a few years ago: The Best of Kahlua: A Guide to Food and Entertaining. (1970). There are some really great recipes in this book, but I think this recipe for Mexican Chocolate Kahlua Cake is perfect for Cinco de Mayo--or any day! It's so easy and delicious!
