Chocolate Kahlua Cake

I got the recipe for Chocolate Kahlua Cake from The Cake Mix Doctor , but instead of the coffee Kahlua, what I had were Hazelnut Kahlua 1 L and Torino Chocolate Syrup.  So I changed the original 3/4 c Kahlua into 1/4 c hazelnut Kahlua and 1/2 c chocolate syrup. And for the glaze, instead of 1/4 c Kahlua, I used espresso (prepared using Tassimo), which was around 1/8 cup, so to make it 1/4, I mixed it with half Hazelnut Kahlua and half Chocolate Syrup.

The Dairy Chronicle: Cream Separator

Cream Separator
 This post marks the start of my newfound interest in my rural American kitchen: DAIRY.

That includes milk, heavy cream, skimmed milk, butter, yogurt, and cheeses. The best part: I am getting the raw ingredient for FREE.
