Quick notes

This cake can be baked in two 8 inch round cake pans for a 2 layered cake. You can substitute the half and half with whole milk. You will loose the rich creamy taste but will be able to cut down a lot of calories. If you want to make the sauce thinner add 1 tablespoon of half and half at a time until you get the desired consistency You can substitute Kahlua for any liqueur of your choice like Baileys Irish Cream, Starbucks Coffee Liqueur …anything you have at home! You can use your favorite chocolate – Snickers, Mars, Twix, MilkyWay, Kit Kat Use good quality cocoa powder and coffee
