Chocolate Whiskey Cake

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.


  • 1 and 3/4 cups APF Flour/ 200 grams of all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar/ 250 grams sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder/100 grams
  •  1 1/2 Tea Spoons baking powder/vinegar
  • 1/2 Tea spoons baking soda
  • 1 Tea spoon salt
  • 2 eggs – replace eggs with 1/2 cup yogurt or applesauce
  • 1 cup milk/240 grams
  • 1/2 cup oil/120 grams
  • 1 Table Spoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Irish Whiskey Coffee (See Notes section below for more information)/240 grams Irish Whiskey coffee


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F or 180 degree C

  • Mix and sieve dry ingredients in a bowl – flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder
  • Beat milk and oil and sugar in another bowl for about 3 minutes
  • Add eggs one by one and beat for few more minutes
  • Pour the hot Irish coffee (the coffee shouldn’t be piping hot. Just hot enough). If you dont have Irish Whiskey Coffee, In 1 cup coffee add 1 tablespoon whiskey/rum
  • Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and mix well (the batter will be runny)
  • pour batter into prepared tins and bake for 30/35 minutes


  • 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
  • The cup used in this recipe is the US cup measurement. 1 cup = 8 fluid ounces

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
