  1. : First, preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Then, sift the flour, salt, and the baking powder together making sure it is mixed in well. Next, combine the coffee, bourbon or brandy, chocolate, and butter or margarine in the top of a double boiler and melt slowly. Keep stirring until the chocolate mixture is thoroughly heated, but not overcooked. Then, pour the chocolate mixture into a large bowl. Using an electric mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar. You will need to continue beating until all the sugar has dissolved. At this point, raise the speed to medium and add the sifted dry ingredients a little at a time until you've added all of it. Mix well, then beat in the eggs and vanilla until thoroughly blended. Pour the batter into a generously greased 3-quart bundt pan that has been dusted lightly with cocoa powder or flour. You'll need to adjust the rack so the cake will bake in the top half of our oven. Bake the cake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then unmold onto a wire rack and let it cool completely. Finally, when the Mississippi Mud Cake is cooled, dust lightly with some cocoa powder. Serve with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream, if desired, or drizzle with chocolate or vanilla glaze. My mouth is watering as I write this!
