Fantastic Cake! I made this recipe to bring to a New Year's Eve party and it was a great hit. The cake is so moist and not very difficult to make. I did not top it with whipped cream, instead I dusted it with powdered sugar. Thanks!

I've never tasted Kahlua cake before, much less bake one, but for my first try I found this to be very easy to make and very delicious! I made no changes, and used homemade Kahlua, which a friend gave me last Christmas. I made the cake on Sunday, froze it, and served part of it at my office on Monday. I kept the other portion refrigerated and today, 3 days later, it was still very moist. I didn't top it with whipped cream, but I believe it would be really good topped with vanilla ice cream. I will definitely make this again. Thanks Miss Annie for this great recipe!

This is one of my family's favorite cakes, and is requested often for birthdays! I used dark cocoa last time I made it and it was delicious!
