    Source: Jack Daniels Cookbook

    5 ounces unsweetened chocolate
    2 cups sifted flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup dry instant coffee
    Boiling water
    Cold water
    1/2 cup Jack Daniels
    1 cup (2 sticks) sweet butter
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups granulated sugar
    3 eggs (large or extra large)

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour 9-inch tube pan.

    Melt chocolate; set aside to cool.

    Sift flour, soda, and salt together. Dissolve coffee in a bit of boiling water, add cold water to equal 1 1/2 cups; add the Jack Daniels and set aside.

    Cream butter, vanilla extract and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add melted chocolate.

    On low speed, add the flour alternating with the liquid mixture. It will be a thin batter. Pour into pan and rotate to distribute batter evenly in pan. Bake 1 hour and 10-15 minutes.

    Cool in pan for 15 min before removing.

    Optional: drizzle with extra chocolate or make a mixture of powdered sugar, water and 1 tablespoon Jack Daniels. THIS IS VERY RICH!!
