  • ½ cup whiskey or bourbon
  • 2 pcs. eggs

  • ½ vegetable oil
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsps. vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • ½ cup brewed coffee, cooled

  • ½ cup chocolate chips

For ganache frosting

  • 3 tbsps. Whiskey
  • 8 oz. chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp. salt



1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees and spraying a non-stick spray over a nine by 13 inches baking pan.

2. Use a mixing bowl to combine the eggs, sour cream, sugar, vanilla, and vegetable oil until well-mixed. Once blended together, add in the whiskey, cocoa powder, and coffee. Be sure that there are no lumps forming.

3. Then, add in ½ cup chocolate chips and pour the mixture into the pan. Bake for around 40 minutes. You may use the toothpick technique as well where you know the cake is baked when the toothpick comes out clean. Once baked, let it cool down.

For ganache frosting:

1. Pour chocolate chips in a microwave-ready bowl and use the microwave to soften the chips for just a minute in the timer.

2. Use another bowl to heat the cream for about two minutes. Add in the chocolate chips to the boiled cream. Before stirring, let it sit for two minutes

3. Use the whisk to stir and notice how the chocolate will adapt with the cream’s consistency as well. Start adding in the whiskey and vanilla. Then, cool this mixture inside the fridge for 30 minutes or longer. Once thickness is consistent, spread this as a layer over the cake and sprinkle more chocolate.
