A friend of mine went to Las Vegas and came back talking about a Kahlua cake smothered in chocolate sauce that she enjoyed while there on vacation. It sounded so good that I just HAD to come up with one of my own. This is the results of my efforts. It was pretty good still warm, but I like it better after chilling all night. Almost like a pudding/cake consistancy. Very dense, rich and chocolatly. The glaze chilled to a soft shell that I enjoy very much. The leftover glaze can be re-heated to pour warm over the servings on the plate which contrasts very nicely with the cool cake.
