I rarely bake as I am not good at it and my attempts usually flop. However, this cake turned out wonderfully! Very rich but not too sweet, and the coffee really adds a nice touch. And when you get one of those chocolate chips - yum! I was wondering if you think Kahlua could be substituted for some of the hot coffee. Thanks so much! Hungry Alice
