For the cake

  • 4 oz. (115g) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup (30g) cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) Kahlua
  • 3/4 cup (175g) crème fraîche
  • 1/2 cup (115g) butter
  • 1 cup (200g) brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) boiling water
  • 1 cup (150g) chocolate chips

For the glaze

  • 4 oz. (115g) semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup (60g) heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp. Kahlua


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F (175°C). Grease a gugelhupf tin and dust with flour.
  2. Chop the chocolate and add to a heatproof bowl, place over a pot with simmering water and melt. Set aside. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt and set aside. Mix the crème fraîche and Kahlua in a small bowl until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl add the butter and brown sugar and mix on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one after another and mix well in between. Add vanilla extact and cooled melted chocolate and mix well. Add the flour mixture alternating with the Kahlua mixture and mix until just combined – do not overmix. Add the boiling water and mix. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the gugelhupf tin and smooth out the top. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in middle of the cake comes out clean. Take out of the oven and let cool down in the tin for about 25-30 minutes, then carefully remove from the tin and let cool down on a wire rack completely.
  4. For the glaze chop the chocolate and add to a bowl. Add the heavy cream and Kahlua to a saucepan and heat up until little bubbles appear on the surface, then pour over the chocolate and let sit without stirring for about 2 minutes, then mix until well combined and smooth. Let cool down a bit, then drizzle over the cake. Let the glaze dry before serving.
