Almond Coffee Cake


I was wondering what to do with the bottle of Kahlua coffee liqueur when Ann of Anncoo Journal posted her Almond coffee cakes.  Making this is a breeze and mixing can be done in a jiffy.  I totally agree with her that these lovely mini bundt cakes are truly very delicious and the sweet aroma of the Kahlua is just overwhelming.
