Chocolate Kahlua Cake With Pecan Filling

I made this for my boyfriend's mother on her birthday. I was trying to impress her and everybody else and this cake did the trick. It takes some time, but it is so worth it.

ingredients

directions

  • For the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.
  • Stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl, making sure there are no lumps.
  • Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and beat with an electric hand mixer for about 2 minutes or until smooth.
  • Stir in the boiling water. Don't worry if the batter is thin. It's supposed to be that way.
  • Pour the batter evenly into the pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Once the cakes have cooled, use a fork to poke holes in the tops of the cakes and baste with the coffee liqueur.
  • For the filling: In a sauce pan, combine sugar, flour, butter, milk and yolks.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick.
  • Remove from heat and stir in salt, vanilla and pecans.
  • Once the cake and the filling have cooled, spread a thick layer between the cakes.
  • For the frosting: Cream together the sugar, cocoa and butter with an electric hand mixer.
  • Beat in the cream and vanilla.
  • Add small amounts of hot water until desired consistency is reached.
  • Spread over entire cake.

    This was absolutely fantastic. I didn't use all of the filling because it wouldn't fit, but other than that it was wonderful.
