The recipe I am going to post here is the version I made.  The flavor can be changed just by changing the alcohol.  The original recipe called for whiskey.

Chocolate Kahlua Bundt Cake
1 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch process), plus 3 Tb for dusting. 
1 1/2 Cups brewed coffee
1/2 Cup kahlua 
2 sticks butter, cut into cubes
2 Cups sugar
2 Cups flour
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Grease a 10 inch Bundt pan then dust with 3 Tb cocoa knock out excess.
Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Heat coffee, kahlua, butter and the 1 Cup cocoa in a saucepan over moderate heat, whisking until butter has melted. 
Remove from heat and add sugar and whisk until dissolved, about 1 minute. 
Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool for about 5 minutes. 
While mixture cools whisk together flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
In another bowl whisk together eggs and vanilla.
Whisk eggs into chocolate mixture.
Whisk flour into chocolate mixture. 
Pour into pan and bake 40 to 45 minutes.  (batter will be very thin)
Bake until a skewer comes out clean. 
Cool in pan on a rack for 2 hours. 

This cake improves in flavor if made at least 1 day in advance.  Keep in cake keeper or wrap in plastic. (I did not see this until I started making the cake and I served it the same day and it was very good have not had a slice today but if it gets better it is going to be a favorite in this house!

Dust with powdered sugar and serve with sweetened whipped cream if desired.

I can't decide if I want to make this with amaretto next time or a hazelnut flavored liquor.  Possibilities are endless...well at least to the types of alcohol available.

Here it comes........I just cut up the rest to wrap and place in the refrigerator so it will last longer and the smell is so wonderful.  
Funny thing is I am not usually a coffee person but the chocolate and coffee together is the perfect balance.  I was worried using a coffee flavored liquor that it would be too much coffee but it isn't.

Sounds much better with Kahlua than with whiskey.  Thanks so much for sharing the recipe Nikki.

I find that the really thin batter chocolate cakes are the best.  They are fine grained and the chocolate flavor comes out nicely.  the VBB ultimate chocolate cake I made had the thin batter and with the ganache icing it is really chocolate and good.

I was trying to figure out a way to do a lemon version and use Lemoncello. 
With the 1 Cup of cocoa in the batter that is a lot to make up in another dry form.
So my conclusion is that I will just make a lemon cake probably a pound cake and for all the liquid called for in the recipe just use Lemoncello.
If you were going to make a white cake and use amaretto or the kahlua I think the cake would look a little "muddy" due to the color of the alcohol used.

Ooh, yum!  This reminds me of some chocolate cupcakes that my mother made.  It called for coffee.  What a great way to use leftover coffee.  Don't throw it out, save it and make chocolate cake!  Though, I don't drink alcohol, so I don't have any around.  Use something like orange juice or another fruit juice instead?

You could just increase the coffee.  The recipe calls for 1/2 Cup of alcohol just use another 1/2 Cup of coffee. 
If you wanted a chocolate orange flavor orange juice would be an option. 
Cherry juice would be good also for a flavor like a Black Forest cake.  I think if I were going to use the cherry juice I would eliminate the coffee.
