Kahlua Cake

For more delicious recipes, visit this week's Carnival of Recipes.

This is not an easy recipe. But well worth making. I usually triple the icing... because I eat so much of it before it makes it to the cake. :-) Here is my first entry for the Carnival of Recipes! Enjoy!

Cake Ingredients:
3 eggs separated
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup soft butter
1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
2 ¼ cups all purpose flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ½ tsp baking soda
¾ cup strong cold coffee (instant is fine)
¾ cup kahlua


Sift flour, cocoa and baking soda together.
Cream butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolks one at a time.
Add flour mixture, alternating with coffee and kahlua to cream mixture. Blend well.
Beat egg whites until frothy. Beat in sugar until stiff peaks. Take above mixture and fold into egg whites.
Pour into pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool on wire racks before frosting.

Frosting Ingredients:

6 tbl softened butter
1 lb sifted powdered sugar (3 ½ cups)
3 tbl unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbl kahlua
