I love Kahlua. I decided to create my own signature Kahlua cakes. I revamped a regular chocolate cake recipe and made it my own. I tweaked the ingredients and added a sauce and divided it up and made them into individual cakes.These are deep rich chocolate cakes with Kahlua. Top with ice cream and my Kahlua chocolate sauce. These are a Kahlua lovers dream. Enjoy!

A Kahlua and chocolate lovers dream recipe! Where to begin… the chocolate sauce alone is worth trying this recipe for. There are a few steps, but well worth it. The cake’s warm, ooey, gooey chocolate with a slight hint of Kahlua. Ice cream and chocolate sauce on top send this over the top. It’s a special dessert but simple enough for every day. It’s delicious! The Test Kitchen

Make sauce:
Mix coffee, sugar, Kahlua, and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
Mix in chocolate chips. Reduce heat to medium. Stir until melted. Mix cornstarch with water. Add to chocolate mixture. Stir until thickened like syrup.
Remove from heat. Pour into bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Set aside.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and lightly flour muffin tin. Set aside.
Melt 2 tbsp of butter with the 8 ounces of chocolate on medium heat in saucepan. Stir constantly until melted and smooth. Remove from heat.
In a bowl beat remaining softened butter, brown sugar, and Kahlua. Beat until smooth. Set aside.
In a bowl beat the eggs. Add to melted chocolate a little at a time. Mix until well combined.
Mix in the Kahlua mixture.
Combine flour and salt. Mix into batter.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin tins to about 3/4 full.
Place in oven and bake about 10-15 minutes. Test with toothpick. You want center moist and hot. Crumbs will stick to pick.
Cake’s done when outside of cakes are cooked through and center is soft. Let cool 5 minutes.
Run a knife around cakes. Invert tin of cakes onto a platter. Drizzle The 3 tablespoons of Kahlúa over the cakes. Place a little bit of sauce on individual plates. Place a cake over sauce. Place a scoop of ice cream on top of cakes. Drizzle with more sauce and garnish with whipped cream, nuts, and shaved chocolate if desired.
