*** this is the recipe that you all asked for.. these are the things I changed. I used loaf pans to cook the cake. I also used an Irish whiskey..but you are supposed to use bourbon. I made a simple sugar and whiskey glaze to pour over it.. ask questions if you need to or improvise and post results...
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1½ cups strong brewed coffee
½ cup whiskey
1½ sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup mini chocolate chips
2 cups flour
1½ teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3 large eggs plus one egg white
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325°. Butter a 10-inch springform pan, dust with 2 tablespoons cocoa powder and place on a baking sheet.
In a saucepan, whisk together the coffee, whiskey, butter and 3/4 cup cocoa powder over low heat. Whisk in the granulated and brown sugars. Let cool. In a small bowl, toss the chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon cocoa powder.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, pepper and cloves. Whisk the eggs, egg white and vanilla into the cooled coffee-chocolate mixture. Whisk in the flour mixture. Fold the cocoa-dusted chocolate chips into the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick comes out just slightly moist, about 1 hour. Let cool. Dust with the remaining 1 tablespoon cocoa powder before serving.
