Cake me Boyo

*** 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...

Enjoy Synde


  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
