When it comes up in a cake filling...what exactly is it? I don't drink and have never used it before...so is it something you can buy in the grocery store, around the cooking supplies? Or do you go to a liqour store for it? Is it a cooking alcohol or a drinking alcohol? I feel dumb asking.
And I accidentally posted this in the wrong forum...sorry!
Starbucks makes a coffee liqueur, there is also one called Kalua.
I'm in a dry county so it is something I have to go to the Liquer store for, it's for drinking and baking. If you don't have any or don't want to use it, you could just use some strong coffee in place of it.
Great, thanks! I thought about the coffee instead, but I really had no idea if the kind mentioned in recipes was the same kind you drink, or a specific cooking ingredient I had yet to be exposed to. Sheltered, much?
Coffee, won't have the alcohol kick behind it, but I think it could work.
I use Kahlua flavored coffee syrups, typically DaVinci's brand as it's my favorite. Then I get the flavor but no alcohol to worry about. In fact, I'm doing a mocha wedding cake this weekend that I've used the Kahlua flavoring in and the scrap cake we tested was super yummy!
