For cake: Preheat over to 375 degrees. Grease 9" round cake pan; line

into batter. Pour into prepared pan. Bake until cake is springy to
touch, about 25 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Invert cake onto

saucepan. Remove from heat. Add chocolate and stir until melted and
smooth. Blend in liqueur. Cool to room temperature. For Buttercream:
