My husband is a big fan of single malt and high-end scotches. And he likes dark chocolate too. So, when Cask & Kettle approached me for a brand partnership, I had to say yes. The hard coffee that they offer are any baker’s dream really. So, I paired up with them to bring you an Chocolate Whiskey Cake. I used my basic Chocolate Cake recipe for this recipe and instead of adding plain regular coffee, I used the hard coffee from Cask & Kettle.

Preparing this cake is really easy and the combination of whiskey, coffee and chocolate is a delicious match indeed. The interplay of coffee, whiskey and chocolate is subtle but powerful, and results in a deeply flavored, moist Chocolate Whiskey Cake that comes together quickly. Cask & Kettle’s hard Coffee with the aroma of smoky whiskey mixed with chocolate and resulting in this Chocolate Whiskey Cake, is something you should whip up for this holiday season.

  • If you don’t have a Keurig machine at home, you can dump the contents of the pod into a cup and add hot water to make the Irish Whiskey coffee
